Boston Red Sox
Boston won again on Friday behind Chris Sale and a grand slam home run from Mitch Moreland.
Moreland was a good player for the Sox last season but he was under the microscope as an everyday player who was hitting cleanup, not to mention he was the guy who took David Ortiz’s spot. Sox fans will appreciate him more this season without such inflated expectations.
David Price and his strong start is one of the main reasons I don’t trust Boston to just run away with this division. He won’t stay healthy, nor will he stay this good. The public thinks he will, though.
It’s going to be a hard summer for Boston fans, having to watch as their team loses ground on the Yankees. It will happen and I’m not saying the Sox will blow it, but it’s going to be a rough spot for the fans.
The loss on Friday was Oakland’s first in five games. Jed Lowrie was a rare bright spot. He collected another four hits against his former team and is now hitting .372/.426/.640 on the season.
The A’s have some power and if there’s a team I would buy other than the Astros in the AL West, it wouldn’t be the Angels, nor the Mariners. It would be Oakland.
Daniel Mengden and his mustache get the start on Sunday afternoon. He’s been solid this season but was at his best the last time he took to the mound, taking a shutout into the ninth before surrendering a leadoff homer that led to his removal.

Just can’t back Price. In fact, fading him every time out is probably a winning angle.
