Here we go... to be the best, we need to beat the best and Astros won it all last year. We have best record in league..we won 2 in NY to knock them out...and now its Sale vs Verlander...epic starters, epic teams...we can do this....We also have a manager who knows that team better then anyone...Lets make this season epic all the way til the Series...Go Sox!!

Saturday start.. Sale will be rested...

I agree! 4 in a row is the way to go after beating Yanks!

Astros are going to be very tough, but to win it all gotta beat the best and right now the Astros are on top, with the Dodgers in second.

Gonna reiterate my hot take of the month I posted a couple days ago.

Don't be surprised if Cora starts giving more save opportunities to pitchers other than Kimbrel. CK is a Squealer and I don't trust him in big spots. I hope he figures it out, but I have reservations.

Congrats to Porcello though for a statement performance. We're gonna need him going forward. Potentially in bullpen stints as well as a starter. And that reach by Pearce.... just amazing. Good pickup by Dombrowski. Gotta feel good for the guy having a moment like that after he's bounced around the minors for most of his career.

This is part of what makes baseball so great.

Great win over the Yankees.  Cora is using his best pitchers in different situations because its the playoffs.  I give Cora an A+ for pushing the right buttons with this team.  As for CK he is our closer and has done the job for years here now.  There is no other choice.  Yes he can be shaky at times but he more than likely will get the job done.  GO SOX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sale is missing a lot of his pitches right now
I'm bitter.

****. Sale needs to pitch his way out of this, we can't survive 7+ innings with our bullpen
I'm bitter.

Can't help but wonder if pitching Sale in relief the other day was a mistake.

Looks like he lost a few mph on fastball and cant locate it

Finally the inning ends. The offense needs to really get going, because pitching is not a strength for us this game
