Uehara, Benoit, & relievers throwing splitters

With numerous high-leverage relievers throwing splitters in the 2013 playoffs, let's put the pitch under a spotlight. What are the pros and cons?

Sox know Cabrera's weakness, and it is heat

Normally, it wouldn't be an issue for one of the game's great hitters, but the injuries have piled up and slowed him down.

Myers leaves with injury

Wil Myers' bat cramped up long before his legs did in Game 3, but his injury still places the Rays in a precarious position.

The myth of the 'must-win' game

We're all a little on edge, but we should probably relax. At least a little bit.

There is no Tazawa problem

In a recent development, there seems to be a good amount of criticism going the way of Junichi Tazawa. While he hasn't been perfect, the Red Sox are fine with him being their top set-up man.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia shares his insights on catching with FanGraph's David Laurila. How important is a catcher's pitching-calling decisions, and can we quantify them?

Replacing Andrew Bailey

Having run through a couple of closers already this season, the Red Sox are probably going to choose between a couple of Japanese pitchers with killer statistics. This has to work, right?

Andrew Bailey likely out as Red Sox closer

It might only be temporary, but the Sox aren't going to mess around in the ninth.

Bailey activated, De La Torre optioned

It was the move we all knew was coming, but here it is in all its officialness.
