Boston Red Sox
Forgive me for sleeping through the Red Sox game but watching Drew Pomeranz throw 100 pitches to get through five innings is exactly the sort of thing Major League Baseball needs to find a way to reverse.
The best way to speed the game up is to get rid of commercials. Abolishing instant replay would also help.
I’m not sure if you can reverse what is going on with pitchers because it’s the result of higher stakes, which, afterall, is what fans pay to experience.
Cloning Chris Sale to let him pitch every game could work, though. The fastest-working starting pitcher since Mark Buehrle will throw for Boston tonight.
He’ll face Trevor Bauer, who is starting to dominate.
It doesn’t look like the Indians will be able to count on either Danny Salazar or Josh Tomlin down the stretch. Mike Clevinger doesn’t inspire much confidence, either.
The Indians’ staff is deceivingly thin at the moment and it feels like that won’t change at this point.
If they get Andrew Miller back, their three bullpen guys and Kluber, Carrasco and Bauer will have to carry them.
Shaw and Allen are showing signs of hitability this year but if Bauer continues to pitch like he’s pitched over his last five starts (35 IP, 6 ER), Cleveland has a chance.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction: neither offense does a whole lot.
The first team that has to go to its bullpen is at a disadvantage. But for the price on the board, I have to take Cleveland.
