Boston Red Sox
Chris Sale got his first win of 2019 on Friday night. He threw six innings of shutout baseball against his former team, striking out ten and walking one in a 6–1 Boston win.
The Red Sox are playing a little better of late, and by that I mean they are 6–3 in their last nine. They aren’t going to lose a hundred games this season, but the recent uptick — even Sale’s encouraging outing — feels a bit like a dead cat’s bounce.
This team still has major problems. The bullpen, which blew a lead and lost in the ninth inning on Thursday night, is bad. The starting pitching feels like its being held together by duct tape, and Rafael Devers isn’t hitting for any power.
The first two numbers in the slash-line look ok for the guy who is about all that’s left to take a step forward on a near maxed-out Boston roster: .294/.381. But he’s got just eight doubles — no triples and no home runs.
Devers is still only twenty-two but he’s approaching 1,000 career plate appearances and somehow feels close to maxed-out, too. Boston did need him in 2017; and he helped it win a World Series last year; but I can’t help but think the Sox’ approach with his development has compromised his ceiling.
Chicago White Sox
The White Sox do have to deal with Rick Porcello, who is pitching better of late. He went eight innings and gave up just two hits the last time out against Oakland after beating Detroit with a quality start the outing before.
But unless Porcello is consistently good, he’s terribly unpredictable, and I don’t trust he’s necessarily good for another stellar outing in a spot that favors him on Sunday.
So I lean Chicago for no other reason than I can’t play Porcello as a road favorite. Rick Renteria hasn’t named a starter for Sunday yet but it won’t be Manny Banuelos, who is scheduled for Saturday, Carlos Rodon, who is on the IL, Reynaldo Lopez, who went on Friday, or Lucas Giolito, who threw Thursday. It’ll probably be Ivan Nova.
