Boston Red Sox
Boston swept Toronto at Fenway this week without Mookie Betts. Of course, it did have JD Martinez, who continue to mash, and the starting pitching was excellent, most notably Eduardo Rodriguez (again) on Wednesday.
Now the Sox return to a place that took them for a heck of a ride in the ALDS last season. Houston can turn Minute Maid Park into its own fun house, which is what Altuve, Correa and company did to Chris Sale and Boston in the first round a season ago.
Sale was battered in Game 1. He’ll be on the mound in the first game of this series on Friday.
There isn’t a whole lot to say about Sale these days. He hasn’t been as dominant as he was in the first half of his first season in Boston but that doesn’t mean he’s any less the pitcher. He will be out for some degree of payback in this one.
Of course, Gerrit Cole represents what Houston has added since these two met in the 2017 postseason, much like what JD Martinez is for the Red Sox.
The Astros have been on a run of a lot of games against top-notch competition this month. They’ve played Cleveland twice and the Yankees once in the last four series’ alone. This would be the last one, except Seattle is hot and coming up. At least Houston gets to play back at home.
I have a feeling Chris Sale is going to want to win this game more than any other player on the field, which gives Boston a distinct advantage in a regular season game.
