Tom Caron: A campaign awaits the champagne

They are ready to celebrate. One night this week, the Boston Red Sox will pop champagne in the clubhouse for the first time since 2009. After the collapse of 2011 and the ignominy of 2012, it will be a long-awaited party.

While there are no certainties in life, the Sox are a lock to win the AL East title for just the second time since 1995. They've already won 92 games -- best in the majors -- and need to go just 6-5 down the stretch to match their best record in the last 35 years...

Tom Caron: In the first place, Sox can't let up
They begin their final road trip of the season Tuesday.

BOSTON — The division is clinched, the Red Sox are heading to their first postseason appearance in four years and they won't have to get involved in any of the wild-card madness

While a half-dozen American League teams are fighting tooth and nail for the right to play a one-game showdown, the Sox are sitting pretty and waiting for Game 1 of the AL Division Series.

Tom Caron: So, who gets the start for Red Sox in Game 1?
BOSTON - The Red Sox get back to work Tuesday. They've still got three days to go until they play a game, but they will hold a workout Tuesday afternoon at Fenway Park.

Tuesday they will hold an intrasquad scrimmage in an effort to break up their practice week with some action in a game setting. The biggest goal over these few days is to avoid getting rusty...

Tom Caron: Red Sox built on a solid foundation

The newcomers have been great, but Ortiz and Pedroia are the Glue Two.
BOSTON — There has been no lack of story lines for the 2013 Boston Red Sox. The American League champs are an easy group to cheer for, a deep team of overachievers that has captured our hearts with their never-say-die run to the World Series...

Tom Caron: For Red Sox, next year is next year, so savor the present
The Boston Red Sox won’t be the same team in 2014, as GM Ben Cherington looks to repeat a magical year.
Somehow, November snuck up on us. October became a blur of late-night baseball and champagne-soaked clubhouses. The duck boats have been parked (except for the one Jake Peavy bought, which is heading south) and the confetti has been swept away...

Tom Caron: Pitching-rich Red Sox not standing pat
If Jacoby Ellsbury or Mike Napoli go elsewhere, Boston has an abundance of pitchers for trade bait.
BOSTON – Tim Hudson?

When reports surfaced recently that the Red Sox had inquired about the 38-year old free-agent pitcher, it became immediately clear that General Manager Ben Cherington had no plans of letting his team rest on its laurels. Sure, Hudson (who is reportedly close to a deal with the Giants) is a quality pitcher who knows how to win big games. But why would Boston be looking at adding a starter?...

Tom Caron: Sox still waiting on free agents
BOSTON – They’re still out there. Four important members of the Red Sox championship run of 2013 are unsigned free agents. Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli, Stephen Drew and Jarrod Saltalamacchia could be wearing any of 30 uniforms next season...

Tom Caron: Are the Red Sox done with holiday shopping?
GM Ben Cherington says he’s content with the roster changes so far, but Boston has a lot of pitchers that could figure in a deal.

ORLANDO, Fla. — The Red Sox front office has gone to Disney World, and this isn’t some Mickey Mouse-inspired trip to celebrate the 2013 World Series. General Manager Ben Cherington and his staff are here to work toward keeping the defending champs on top in 2014...

Tom Caron: Red Sox in no hurry to make deals

Boston has been successful by grooming young talent and avoiding big, long-term contracts.
It was undoubtedly the quietest of winter meetings in major league history. Thirty teams had their front offices on hand at Disney World, and hundreds of members of the media were poised to cover any breaking moves that were made. We’re still waiting for that news to break...

Tom Caron: Jonny Gomes a perfect hero for Red Sox Nation

The offbeat Boston slugger became the poster boy for his band of bearded brothers.
BOSTON — In a winter filled with talk of the next polar vortex, thoughts of spring training warm our heart in these final days of January. It might be tough to imagine needing a blast of fresh air, but over the past week Red Sox outfielder Jonny Gomes has given us exactly that...
