Even though we are only a third of the way through it appears that neither of these teams is going to have the season they were hoping for. Things are tighter in the NL East so Philly might be able to turn it around.
In Boston, they might have perfectly timed a season in which fan interest was bound to be at its lowest in recent memory. Otherwise the airwaves would be scorching
The Phillies are only a game under .500 heading into Tuesday and taking on Boston is not what it used to be. They have to clean things up if they want to push forward though.
Their big acquisitions from a year ago are paying dividends as Bryce Harper and JT Realmuto are leading a team that is fourth in scoring. There is no doubt that Realmuto is the best catcher in the game right now. Didi Gregorius, this years flashy sign has also fit in nicely.
Jake Arrieta is aging, mostly gracefully. He has his moments but most of all he does not give up a ton of walks or homers. He is getting opponents to put the ball in play and relying on his defense. The bullpen has not been good this season though.
Boston Red Sox
A quick status update about the Red Sox can probably be summed up by the question who is Kyle Hart? The Red Sox are dead last in ERA and it is because they are relying a group or hurlers that shouldn’t be in the Majors. Hart was rocked in his lone start this season.
On offense you have to worry about the fact that Kevin Pillar is leading the team in hitting. I love the guy but consistent contact has never been his thing. Now hitting in the .290s is great but they need some other players to give them more.
The best hitter on the team right now is Mitch Moreland, something nobody could have seen coming. If they start ripping throughout the lineup maybe that success will help them overcome their pitching woes.
Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction:
Boston still commands some market value so fading them can be a profitable strategy. I know it might feel weird at Fenway Park but their pitching is so bad the only alternative is the over. Both are looking good here.
