The team's decision to bring Nathan Eovaldi back into the fold should solidify Alex Cora's starting pitching for the 2019 season.

In the clubhouse after the loss, his Red Sox teammates gave him a standing ovation in appreciation of his effort.

Trump to name Milley new Joint Chiefs chairman
Mark Milley to be the next chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, replacing current Chairman Gen. The Joint Chiefs of Staff serve as the executive branch's top military advisers.

The 28-year-old right-hander posted a 3.33 ERA in 12 regular-season appearances (11 starts) after arriving from the Tampa Bay Rays in July. He started and came in relief situations at times and now he's being rewarded for his heroics. Eovaldi helped propel the Red Sox past their AL East rivals, New York Yankees including an 8-inning shut out gem, allowing just 3 hits and striking out 4. The terms of the contract have not been released, but the deal is reportedly in the ballpark of four-years, $68 million, according to Fancred's Jon Heyman. He spent two seasons with the Yankees in 2015 and 2016. Out of 140 pitchers with at least 100 innings, that was the seventh-lowest walk rate, right up there in Corey Kluber/Justin Verlander territory. Eovaldi looks to slot alongside Chris Sale, David Price, Rick Porcello, and Eduardo Rodriguez, to once again form a scary rotation and one of the tops in baseball. "He did a tremendous job for us last season, playing a significant role in helping us win the division and the World Series".

"Nobody's going to remember who won that game". Maybe that's why the Red Sox will get those World Series rings while the Yankees and Dodgers didn't.

Raptors 905 waives Kay Felder after domestic violence charges
Felder averaged 18 points, four rebounds, and almost seven assists in 11 games for Raptors 905 this season. The 2016 NBA Draft pick has bounced around the NBA and G League, but his latest stop is immediately over.

Either way you slice it, the Red Sox signed a pitcher, who would be the one or two in many rotations, to be their fourth or fifth starter and he's still in his prime under a pretty decent contract. Your move, Brian Cashman.
