This is a fun series with a couple of first-place teams going at it. I guess there is no juice because all of Boston’s hatred is toward the Yankees.
Boston Red Sox
Boston is off to a great start. Their hitting is drawing all the headlines but this team has also played very well on the road, they are 6-1. They could be down a significant bat with Alex Verdugo dealing with an injury.
Garret Richards will not be a part of the next great Red Sox team. That might not be a profound statement but I am pretty sure it is true. He is just filler this year and the Red Sox might win a few with him due to their bats.
According to WAR, the Red Sox have the second-best bullpen in the Majors. I like Matt Barnes in the closer role but the rest of the group feels like a stretch right now.
New York Mets
New York took two of three against Washington over the weekend. The offense is still bad but in both wins they did not give up a run so at least the pitching has been strong, mostly.
David Peterson has been the weak link in a very good rotation for the most part. The Mets are 1-2 in his starts. The one showed why the Mets are high on the lefty – 10Ks against Philadelphia but in his other two starts, he has pitched just 7 innings combined.
New York’s bullpen gets hammered because of all the wins they let get away for Jacob deGrom. That narrative is not common though, they are in the top five according to WAR as well.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
I like the Red Sox here. I am not trusting either pitcher much and if you are getting into which lineup you like better then Boston is a no brainer. They should hit Peterson more than vice versa
