    HOUSTON – David Price picked the perfect time to book his first career playoff win as a starting pitcher. It sent the Boston Red Sox to the World Series. Arguably the worst postseason starter in baseball history, Price shut out a flat Houston Astros team for six innings Thursday night en route to a 4-1 victory in a pennant-clinching Game 5 of the American League Championship Series. The Red Sox, who won a franchise-record 108 games during the regular season, will host the winner of the Los Angeles Dodgers-Milwaukee Brewers National League Championship Series in Game 1 of the World...

  • Trahan welcomes Pelosi at fund-raiser but won’t say whether she will support her for leader

    As she’s campaigned in the Third Congressional District, Lori Trahan has repeatedly left open this question if elected: Would she back Nancy Pelosi for minority leader or speaker of the House? Whether she’ll campaign with her, however, is a different answer. Trahan is welcoming Pelosi, the current House minority leader, to a fund-raiser Tuesday in Concord, using the California Democrat’s name and standing to help generate cash in the closing weeks of her race against GOP nominee Rick Green. In a statement, Trahan said she was grateful Pelosi is “once again doing everything she can to get Democrats elected in...

    There was no debating the better team all year, and there was no debating the better team in this series. The 108-win Red Sox entered the postseason with more questions than the SATs while the Wild Card Yankees looked like a team nobody wanted to face this October. And yet it was the Sox who looked like juggernauts by the time the American League Division Series was over at Yankee Stadium late Tuesday night. Rick Porcello earned his first win in a playoff start, Christian Vazquez hit his first home run since June 26 and Chris Sale pitched out of...

    Nope: A top police union in Boston is refusing to endorse Democratic Sen. Elizabeth “Fauxcohontas” Warren in her reelection bid because of her Left-wing anti-police activism and “derogatory” remarks. The Boston Herald reported that the Boston Police Patrolmen’s Association will not give her its endorsement because during her time in the Senate she has called the criminal justice system “racist” which proves she doesn’t “stand” with law enforcement.

    A panel discussion featuring Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., in Boston next week has been moved due to security concerns amid a contentious battle to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Flake was confronted by sexual assault survivors at the Capitol on Friday after he said he would vote to advance Kavanaugh’s nomination. Flake is appearing Monday at the Forbes Under 30 Summit in Boston to discuss the future of the Republican Party. The panel discussion, which will also feature fellow GOP member Ohio Gov. John Kasich, was originally scheduled to be held at Emerson Colonial Theatre. Emerson College President...

    Boston police gang unit Officer Patrick Curtin had no idea he was being shot until the leg he wedged into the front door of Requon Remy Martin’s South End apartment building began to burn, according to a police report. Boston Municipal Court Judge James M. Stanton yesterday ordered Martin, 21, and his co-defendant Antoine Mack, 35, of Pawtucket, R.I., held without bail at the request of assistant Suffolk District Attorney Montez Haywood after they pleaded not guilty to armed assault with intent to murder, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and multiple firearm charges.

    Amazon has been ramping up hiring in the 20 cities it shortlisted for its HQ2 search and Philadelphia is dead last in those efforts while Virginia, Boston and New York rank in the top three, according to a GeekWire report. One can only wonder whether Amazon's hiring has anything to do its HQ2 search and the city it ultimately selects. ▪“A GeekWire analysis of Amazon job data provided by a third-party firm found that of the HQ2 finalists, offices in the Washington D.C. area — which includes three of the 20 regions on the short list in D.C. proper, Northern...

    The son of a Boston police captain was sentenced Wednesday to 20 years in prison for an ISIS-inspired terrorist plot — three years after his father tipped off federal law enforcement. Alexander Ciccolo, 26, went by the name Ali Al Amriki. His father, Robert Ciccolo, noted his son’s admiration of the terrorist group and alerted the FBI. The younger Ciccolo was arrested in July 2015 after a sting operation in which he accepted firearms that were illegal due to an earlier conviction. He was also recorded discussing plans that involved filling pressure cookers with black powder, nails and ball bearings,...

    **SNIP** The Globe examined hundreds of documents, many of them never before available, and reached out to all 52 of the law professors who are still living and were eligible to be in that Pound Hall room at Harvard Law School. Some are Warren’s allies. Others are not. Thirty-one agreed to talk to the Globe — including the law professor who was, at the time, in charge of recruiting minority faculty. Most said they were unaware of her claims to Native American heritage and all but one of the 31 said those claims were not discussed as part of her...

    Political analyst predicts 25 Dems will run for president in 2020 Political analyst Bill Schneider predicted on Tuesday that 25 Democrats would launch presidential bids to challenge President Trump in 2020. "My guess is that in 2020, we're going to see 25 Democrats running for president. Every Democrat thinks, why not me?" Schneider told Hill.TV's Joe Concha on "What America's Thinking." "I'll take the over. It might be 30," Hill campaign reporter Reid Wilson interjected. "Might be 30. How are you going to have a debate? You're going to have to have six layers of debates. It's going to be...

    In a historic victory, Boston City Councilor Ayanna Pressley unseated Rep. Mike Capuano, a progressive Congressional favorite first elected in 1998 in Massachusetts' seventh congressional district. Capuano took the stage shortly after 9:15 p.m. and conceded the race. "I'm sorry it didn't work out, but this is life," Capuano told supporters. "This is OK. America is going to be OK. Ayanna Pressley is going to be a good congresswoman, and Massachusetts will be well served. "This is not the side we wanted to be on," he added. "Clearly the district wanted a lot of changes." Pressley, 44, mounted a surprising...

    A century ago, in September 1918, Boston lived up to its reputation as “the hub of the universe,” perhaps more so than at any other time in its history. A Massachusetts Army unit, known as the Yankee Division, was winning the first all American battle of World War I. The Boston Red Sox were on their way to yet another World Series victory, solidifying their place as the most dominant team of the era. A Boston woman was almost single-handedly driving the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and women’s right to vote, toward ratification. Most memorably, the deadly Spanish...

    Just one link in chain of corruption out of Boston FBI office. Disgraced, fired FBI agent Peter Strzok worked in the Boston office of the Famous But Incompetent agency. Why am I not surprised? The most corrupt G-man in American history getting his start in the most corrupt outpost of the squalid agency — it makes perfect sense. .... Yesterday I called the office of special counsel Robert Mueller, the former U.S. attorney for Boston, who knew all of the six or seven FBI agents who were accused in federal court of taking payoffs from gangsters. Some of them were...

    You could call this latest “coordinated” hit on big, bad President Donald Trump ‘The Dog Day of the American Newspaper Industry’ D-Day for the 340-something newspapers who took up the Boston Globe’s lead to publish anti-Trump editorials on their largely ignored-by-the-public editorial pages, and only Rex Huppke’s dog over at the Chicago Tribune is getting to lap up any attention. The progressive-left’s running dog media hoped to gain public trust by coordinating against the president they live to hate in a single day, but their efforts went over like the proverbial lead balloon.

    BOSTON (WCVB/CNN) - A neighbor of the Samuel Adams brewery in Boston has hung up a sign aimed at shaming the brewery's founder for his remarks at a dinner with President Donald Trump. The sign says “Shame!” and “Sam Adams (heart) Trump.” It’s a response to Jim Koch, the founder of Sam Adams producer Boston Beer Company, endorsing Trump’s tax cuts. The sign is visible from the brewery parking lot. The person who hung it said he wants an apology from Sam Adams' CEO himself. "It's only been up a couple of days,” said Jeremy Phillips, who created the sign....
