Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox play their final game at Fenway Park on Thursday night before getting on the road one final time in 2020 with a trip to Atlanta.
Boston enters its Fenway finale in dead-last in the American League East and with the fourth-worst record in all of baseball. Some of the players are already publicly talking about 2021 in the press conferences.
Thing is, the Sox could be even worse next year because it takes a lot more than a year to re-tool not just a starting rotation, nor a big league staff, but rather an entire organization of arms.
Guys like Chris Mazza, Friday’s starter, will continue to see plenty of innings in Boston because there just isn’t any organizational depth to provide internal competition.
Mazza is about 10 percent below league-average, based on ERA, at least. That’s just the baseline in Boston. He’s got a WHIP just about halfway between 1.50 and 2.00.
The Braves, meanwhile, are going to the playoffs, likely either as the second or third seed in the National League. They cashed as division favorites in the preseason futures market and will spend the final weekend setting up the pitching staff.
Kyle Wright’s numbers are similar to Mazza’s. He has a bloated ERA with a WHIP that corresponds and a strikeout-to-walk ratio that doesn’t generate any envy around the league.
The former first round pick in 2017 did win his first game as a big-leaguer after chances in 2018 and 2019.
He’s also coming off his best start of the season — pitching into the seventh inning against the Mets and allowing just one hit.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction: Wright.
The numbers aren’t pretty but his two wins this season have come in his last two starts. The Braves aren’t as well-off as most division winners go in the starting rotation and Wright is pitching for his chance to be a contributor to the postseason roster.
