An awesome game! Great pitching from Eovaldi, and congratulations to Brockstar on getting the first postseason cycle in MLB history!

Is that putting him in the Hall of Fame?

This one is going to come down to the bullpen getting the job done or not

Worst prediction of the night.

It happens.

We need to get out to early leads in these games before the Yankees bullpen comes in.

We need a Brock Holt sighting.  He was hitting so well to end the season.

TP for your pregame astuteness.

I'm really glad I was wrong! Wow, what a huge win for the Sox tonight!

I'd vote "yes."

I hope Porcello can deliver tonight. Price's struggles have largely obscured the fact that Porcello is a bad postseason pitcher thus far in his career.

He has a career 5.33 postseason ERA in 25 IP. Price in comparison is 5.28 in 75 IP.

Let's hope Porcello's numbers are a fluke. Bottom line is it's time to prove himself.

First cycle in post-season history?

That’s wild.

Incredible...over one hundred years of history and this is the first time ever! How do you not start him tomorrow? Announcers think he will be back on bench

It will be interesting to see the line-up.  Conventional wisdom is start the RHBs against Sabathia but there are no real splits differentials for these batters.  They all hit about the same vs. RHP or LHP.  In terms of Sabathia, he has much worse splits against Righties.  I think Cora will look at this and go with the righties (Nunez and Kinsler) but it is a tough call.  Do you go with the historical numbers (analytics) or do you go with the gut feel and the hot hand?

I don't expect a low scoring game with these two pitchers so I guess my vote is to go with Holt at 2B and Nunez at 3B.
