BOSTON (AP) — Somehow, Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora looked at Mookie Betts' MVP season and saw room for improvement. Not the .346 batting average that was the highest in the major leagues. Not the career-high 32 homers, either. But Betts drove in just 80 runs last year while spending almost all...

After falling one game short of their first World Series appearance since 1982, there is plenty of pressure on the Brewers to build on that success and take another step forward in 2019.
