Red Sox parting ways with Hanley Ramirez Red Sox parting ways with Hanley Ramirez
- May 26, 2018

During his four seasons with the Red Sox, Ramirez batted.260 with 78 homers and 255 RBIs. Then again, given Ramirez's sagging numbers, this move shouldn't be entirely unexpected.

Caps too much, eliminate Lightning in Game 7
- May 26, 2018

The first period was a wild affair , filled with scuffles, a fight and stolen jersey. But a team that led the National Hockey League for goals in the regular season and set franchise records for total goals (290), home goals (145) and road goals (145) couldn't score in Game 7, just as they couldn't score in Game 6 and just as they were shut out over basically the final two periods of Game 5 after opening up a 3-0 lead in that contest.
