A lot has been made of the Yankees and Red Sox off-season acquisitions, but when push comes to shove, it will be a race between Boston and Toronto for the eastern title this season.
Both teams have already demonstrated amazing offensive outbursts, and the test will be whose rotation will be able to make a big difference.
Toronto put up a late surge Friday night, but Boston hung in to take the series opener.
Toronto Blue Jays
This is not the start the team wanted with high expectations coming into this season, but all signs point that this recent trend won’t hold long.
The Jays are getting great numbers from the middle of their order and pillar has settled in nicely at the lead off spot, the real question mark is the lack of output from the 7-9 spots.
All of the headlines today will obviously focus on Price pitching for the first time against Toronto, but in reality has not fared well against this group of batters while pitching for the Tigers.
Bautista, Tulowitzki and Donaldson all have respectable numbers, and Encarnacion is starting to get hot.
Estrada might just be the most under rated pitcher in the American League, and we exploited that last season.
His shut out of the Sox in his debut last week cemented the fact we will keep playing him until Vegas raises the odds, especially in a scenario such as today.
Boston Red Sox
Can Boston hit?
Yeah, they can score runs with the best of them. Can Boston hold opponents off the score sheet? No, no and no.
The major issue facing this team going into the off-season was their atrocious rotation and they did very little to correct it.
Instead of spreading out the money and acquiring 2 solid mound men, they blew the budget on Price and shored up what may be the best relief corpse in the entire League.
This team is now averaging over 5 runs scored per game but is also giving up 5+ runs per game, and it will be very hard to keep a winning record with those stats
Price WI have to be the difference here if Boston wants to come out a winner,and if he has his usual ‘one bad inning’ against a team as prolific at the plate as Toronto, it might be more than enough to ice this game.
Ortiz and Shaw have both been living up to expectations this season and we have to figure out a way to manufacture some runs.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction:
With two powerhouse lineups at a stadium such as Fenway, expect full well the public will be trending towards the over here. I think this game will be dominated by the Pitchers and will end up being a low scoring affair.
Toronto is too good of a team to be kept at a 500 record all year and I see a major run coming in the next week or so, possibly starting here.
As for the Red Sox, what to see is what you get and this squad will struggle to stay above 500 all year if their staff doesn’t do something to rectify the glaring holes in their rotation.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Toronto ML
I’m always iffy to take an under on a team like Toronto or Boston, as both are capable of scoring 5+ runs in a single inning. I think we see 3 scoreless innings before Toronto gets to Price, and that will be enough for Estrada to work with
MLB Free Score Prediction: Toronto 5 – Boston 2
