Red Sox' Rafael Devers sets new single-season record for most RBI vs. Blue Jays

Red Sox' Rafael Devers sets new single-season record for most RBI vs. Blue Jays

Rafael Devers is a certified Blue Jays killer.

The Red Sox third baseman has punished the AL East foe all season long, and he continued that trend in Wednesday night's matchup going 3-for-4 with four RBI.

That gives Devers 25 total RBI vs. the Blue Jays this year, passing David Ortiz (2005) for most by a player against Toronto in a single season. Wildly enough, Devers' mark is likely to increase as he'll get to face the Blue Jays four more times in 2019.

That isn't Devers' only impressive stat vs. Toronto. The 22-year-old's seven home runs against the Blue Jays are the third-most in a season by a Red Sox player, trailing only Manny Ramirez (9 in 2001) and J.D. Martinez (8 in 2018).

The Blue Jays will be happy to have a break from Devers after the two teams wrap up their series on Thursday night. After that, they'll next see him again in Toronto on September 10.

Red Sox schedule 2021: Dates, opponents for 162-game season revealed

Red Sox schedule 2021: Dates, opponents for 162-game season revealed

Major League Baseball is looking ahead to (hopefully) brighter days.

The Red Sox don't begin their coronavirus-shortened 2020 season until July 24, but that didn't stop Boston and the rest of the league from unveiling their full schedules for the 2021 MLB season Thursday.

Here's the Red Sox' full 2021 schedule, which at the moment includes 162 games.

Boston will open the 2021 season against the Baltimore Orioles on April 1, 2021, at Fenway Park and play its first nine games against American League East opponents.

The Red Sox' 2021 schedule also includes interleague matchups with the National League East, who they'll see plenty of this summer during their 60-game campaign.

The Sox don't face the New York Yankees until June 4 at Yankee Stadium but will play a total of 14 games against their archrival between June and July.

With COVID-19 still hitting the United States hard, it's much too early to tell if the 2021 season will start on time or if fans will be allowed at games. But at the very least, the league has a schedule in place should things drastically improve over the next seven months.

Yes, these 10 Hall of Famers actually played for the Red Sox

The storied history of the Red Sox includes no shortage of all-time great Hall of Famers, from Ted Williams to Carl Yastrzemski to Pedro Martinez. When we hear their names, we immediately associate them with Boston.

But there's another group of Hall of Famers who don't scream Red Sox, but actually spent a portion of their careers here.

The slick-fielding Luis Aparicio spent his final three seasons in Boston, memorably tripping around third in a crucial showdown with the Tigers for the 1972 pennant.

Frank Chance of Tinkers-to-Evers-to-Chance fame actually spent a year behind the bench, managing the Red Sox to an eighth-place finish in 1923.

Turn-of-the-century right-hander Jack Chesbro, a Massachusetts native, made the final appearance of his career with his hometown team in the 1909 season finale.

None of them make the following list, however, which is the 10 Hall of Famers we still can't believe suited up for the Red Sox, from a 300-game winner to a stolen base king to one of the greatest pure hitters of all time.
