Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox are now on the verge of collecting another World Series trophy, crowning what has been a spectacular regular season and playoffs.
Yesterday’s win certainly didn’t pan out the way I expected with both teams getting pretty good starting pitching and the offenses coming alive late.
Obviously there is less pressure on Boston to go all out to get this win but they may not have to. Boston scored all of its runs in the 7th, 8th, and 9th, innings showing that you really can never count out this group.
Steve Pearce and Mitch Moreland had big blasts, showing the depth of this team. They are essentially spare parts.
In what would be a nice narrative David Price has the chance to be the winner if they clinch the title tonight. I wouldn’t say he has exorcized all of his demons but it would be nice for the well respected lefty. He has proven in this series and against Houston that the playoffs are not too great a stage.
Joe Kelly who ha been awesome in the playoffs was used last night and might not be available for this one.
Possibly Craig Kimbrel too. He was not effective last night anyway.
Up 3-1 it would seem there is no reason to burn through them this evening.
Los Angeles Dodgers
When the weekend started it looked like a game five was unlikely. The Dodgers won that epic game three and are now hoping that their ace can extend the season tonight.
Rich Hill was masterful last night and perhaps another lefty can get the job done. L.A. had their chance for sure on Saturday getting up 4-0 but their bullpen just couldn’t hold the lead.
Essentially the arms that had held up during the playoffs just couldn’t get the job done, one by one they gave up runs and left the game.
Give Boston credit but if your guys can hold leads that puts a lot of pressure on the team…and now they are taking on a resurgent confident Price.
Clayton Kershaw looks like he is going to go down as the greatest regular season pitcher of this generation. He has had so many chances to extend that dominance to the postseason but we have only ever seen glimpses of it.
The only saving grace for this start is that he has been good every other one and this is an odd number so perhaps he bounces back. If not it is going to be really hard for the Dodgers to stay in the game unless the offense explodes.
Its possible but there has been little to get us to expect that this evening.
Good performance or not it is hard to see where the Dodgers can turn with any confidence once he exits the game. A complete game seems unlikely.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction:
The market reaction makes L.A. the favourite in this one purely on the presence of Kershaw. Of course he has the talent to win but the consistency in the playoffs is well documented. It just isn’t there.
4* Free World Series Game 5 Betting Pick: Boston ML
Fading Price might not be a thing anymore but fading Kershaw still is. Further the support that the former has over the latter is definitely stronger. Boston wins the World Series as a slight underdog tonight.
