Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox have an incredibly deep roster, including the likes of recent call-up of a top-5 prospect in baseball, Yoan Moncada. Moncada was hitting .277 at AA with 11 homers while rocketing through the minors.
The 21-year old will man third base in place of the struggling Travis Shaw, and will join a star studded lineup that should allow him to see some pitches to hit.
Rick Porcello and his 18-3 record may be a front-runner at this point for the AL Cy Young. He owns a 3.26 ERA and 1.04 WHIP on the year and has recorded 152 Ks across his 27 starts.
The back end of the bullpen has the like of Craig Kimbrel, Brad Ziegler and Koji Uehara to lock things down.
The Oakland magic at the hands of Billy Beane has not existed this season, seeing the team squander to a 57-76 record thus far.
Beane has made a nice find in Khris Davis, acquiring him from Milwaukee and seeing him hit 34 homers and 85 RBI. The roster is starved for talent though and will likely continue the rebuild into next season.
The starter in this game is still TBD, but to be honest it really doesn’t matter who they run out there against the powerhouse Red Sox team because they aren’t likely to get a win.
Oakland’s pitching has record a collective 4.50 ERA on the season, which is good for just 23rd overall amongst the rankings.
