Red Sox defections leave leadership void

After three consecutive seasons with nearly no turnover, the Red Sox are hemorrhaging members of their front office and managerial staff. That's two key departures in one week.

Moment of Levity: The Big Picture

Sure, this is a pretty great shot, but you know what makes it even better? Check out the raised fist of the one man in this photo wearing a Red Sox hat.
