Boston Red Sox
The Braves have about as big of an advantage in the starting pitching matchup as they can get against Boston on Wednesday afternoon and they’ll have to win to just avoid a sweep at home.
Hector Velazquez has pitched more than a few good games this season but most of them have come at Fenway Park. He’s only a win better at home (4–1 vs. 3–1) but his ERA is almost three-quarters of a run better there (2.89 vs. 3.60). Actually, he’s been pretty good wherever he’s pitched.
The Red Sox’ offense had Sean Newcomb on the ropes early but he got out of every major jam and went five.
Xander Bogaerts ought to be Boston’s clean-up hitter and, for the time being, he is. He’s hitting like someone who should be in that spot, which will almost certainly have to happen if the Sox are going to take this all the way.
Newcomb could get himself out of trouble but the bullpen really couldn’t. None of Atlanta’s relievers are great. The ones who were at points this season are either hurt or just tired. None of that is surprising; the Braves weren’t built for this. Not this year.
But neither were the Phillies, who can’t seem to get any closer, no matter how much Atlanta loses. Both teams are 4–6 over their last ten and the struggles have lasted longer than that.
It’s pretty lame the Nationals couldn’t even make this a race. The Braves are going to get in and then get blown out in the first round, most likely by the Cubs.

Atlanta is the obvious pick but Velazquez has been sneaky good and the Sox’ offense has been moving in Atlanta. You might get a good price, too.
