Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox lost the last two games at home against Anaheim over the weekend to only split the four-game series.
Boston’s playoff hopes are shot. The Red Sox aren’t catching Tampa Bay or Oakland and they would have to catch them both in order to sneak into the tournament. They are about to enter an offseason full of questions, Chris Sale being one of the biggest.
He still leads the league in strikeout rate, hasn’t walked many more than he has at any point in his career (though he has walked just slightly more batters this year than he has in any season since 2012), and his WHIP is still elite.
However, he’s just 6–11 with an ERA set to be his career-worst by a long shot (going into this season, his worst ERA in any season was 3.41. This year, it’s 4.41).
That said, he just tossed eight innings of three-hit, shutout baseball against the Angels on Thursday. He’s out to prove he isn’t damaged goods because before the season Boston paid him through 2025. He also strikes me as a guy who would enjoy sticking it to a playoff-hopeful down the stretch.
Thing is, even if Sale is on his game again, Mike Clevinger can match him. He’s still only made 11 starts this season (over 62 innings) and despite two really rocky starts in June immediately coming back from injury he’s still got wicked numbers.
How’s a 1.005 WHIP, 12.8 strikeouts per nine and just 2.8 walks? He’s 7–2 in those 11 starts, which included 12 earned runs in 6.1 innings between those two starts in June.
Cleveland’s staff is loaded, not only with frontline guys whose names we know but savvy veterans and gung-ho youngsters who can really pitch. To me, it’s the most complete staff in the game, once Corey Kluber comes back, even better than Houston’s star-studded cast of arms.
With Yasiel Puig and a resurgent Jose Ramirez in the middle of the lineup, the bats can match the arms. Cleveland has caught Minnesota in the Central and now it will look to put the Twins in its rearview mirror.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction: the Indians.
I’m tempted to get something down on Sale too and play the under but I just can’t do it again. Anytime I think he’s back for at least a small stretch of time, he gives it up. Just take the Tribe.
