Both of these teams are close to the top of their divisions and both are not going to let a little thing like money stand in the way of a championship.
Boston vs. L.A. is intriguing and whoever wins can continue to put the heat on the teams they are chasing.
I think these teams have the highest payrolls in the AL and NL respectively too. Its funny what money does or doesn’t buy.
Boston Red Sox
As this is being written the Sox hold a slim half game lead in the second Wild Card slot over surging Detroit.
The lineup is still tops in the Majors in runs and batting average but moves to upgrade the pitching have yet to pan out.
Hanley Ramirez just went down, it might have been a big deal early but the way this lineup has been going they will barely miss him even though he is third on the team in RBI’s.
After hitting rock bottom – 9ER @ Tampa – Eduardo Rodriguez has put together 4 good starts in a row.
Boston doesn’t need him to pitch shutouts just to keep him them in the game so their offense can do what it does.
It wasn’t a trade but Boston just got Craig Kimbrel back and all he has done is strike out the side in his first two outings since coming off the DL.
They need him to be feared at the back of the pen.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers have been a roller coaster but thanks to San Fran’s struggles they are just a couple of games back in the NL West.
They are surviving without Clayton Kershaw but they also need someone in the lineup, other than Corey Seager to catch fire.
Getting Josh Reddick from Oakland showed that they are just as committed to winning now as ever.
They need him to have a hot couple of weeks before the season is done.
Bud Norris was originally scheduled to make this start but it looks like he will be scratched due to injury.
We have not heard an announcement from the Dodgers for who their Saturday or Sunday starters will be. Thankfully the bullpen has been great all season long.
The Dodgers pen has the best batting average against and the third best ERA in the Majors.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction:
Right now only the Boston starter is listed but since it is Rodriguez that is not very inspiring. The question is whether you want to go with the devil you know with the assumption that the Sox an bludgeon who ever the Dodgers serve up.
Not sure which way LA is going to to on the mound here.
If they call someone up there could be that unfamiliarity advantage that swings their way. Plus they are at home.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Over
I know there will be no DH but odds are the starters might get mashed in this one. As long as the total is not in double digits take the over on this one.
