The Baltimore Orioles will be flying high after their victory over this very Red Sox team in their season opener, and they will look to repeat that performance again here at Fenway on Saturday when the AL East rivals meetup here.
Starting pitcher John Means looked awfully good in that opening day start going 7 strong innings and fanning 5 Red Sox batters, as he proved just a bit too much for the Boston batters. It is a bit tough to overreact to that start, as we do not really know how good the Red Sox batters will be this year, but that still had to give Means and this team as a whole a bunch of confidence coming into Saturday’s contest.
Cedric Mullins could be one to watch going forward for Baltimore, as he was able to start the season with a multi-hit game which he was able to translate into a very important run.
Matt Harvey will get the start here and it is tough to know what we will get, as he had an ERA close to 6 for the Royals last year, but also all reports are that he had a great spring training, so it is totally up in the air which Matt Harvey we are going to get here.
Boston Red Sox
It was only one game, but off of last year’s debacle, it is hard to see the Red Sox in the same light you used to, as it just seems tough to imagine them turning things around with the moves they made this offseason.
There are also plenty of question marks surrounding this team with number one being just how good Bobby Dalbec is and I know it is only 3 at bats which is statistically insignificant, but he also did not look super comfortable at the plate, so it may take the rookie some time to develop before he can make a real impact for this team.
Tanner Houck will pitch for the Red Sox here and the guy is an exciting prospect especially with what we saw from him at the end of last season going 3-0 and holding a pretty ridiculous ERA of 0.53.

Free Baltimore Orioles vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction:
I think come the end of the season these two teams will not be too far apart from each other in terms of record, so getting +160 on a team I think is at least reasonably close to the other in terms of skill is a situation I would like to take advantage of early in the season while the markets are still a bit behind.
I am also willing to trust that Harvey can have a good start here, as I think he will be ready for this given the spring training he had. The only concern I have here is the Red Sox pitcher Houck, who very well could start off exactly how he left off last year and come in here and wreck the Orioles batting lineup.
