Red Sox glad ALCS begins at home

Brett Gardner

Who folds first? The Sox led the majors in runs per game in 2018 at 5.41 per game while the Astros had the lowest ERA at 3.11.

The Central Division champion Astros did OK, too, winning their first World Series past year; Springer was Series MVP.

Game 1 of the ALCS is tomorrow at Fenway Park in the best-of-seven series. I think he uses it the other way around, as a learning experience. Whatever the reason, he turned in one of his worst performances of the season, when the team needed him most. "We want eight more wins". Gerrit Cole, who wasn't with the Astros previous year, had 12 strikeouts and no walks in his division series start against the Indians; Tom Seaver (1973) is the only pitcher in history to have more strikeouts (13) without a walk in a postseason game. But with the postseason failures of David Price (his team has lost all 10 of his postseason starts), it is not as good as the Astros' rotation. Red Sox players - including a couple that were Cora's teammates when he was with the team from 2005-08 - praised the relatability of their 42-year-old manager after five years with the more traditional and distant John Farrell. "We shouldn't play as a team like that, either". As North America fell in love with the history and hype of the Yankees and Red Sox in their ALDS, the Astros felt like they were the undercard as they blew by the Tribe.

The Red Sox get it, but also believe they showed some prowess of their own by winning two in a row at Yankee Stadium to wrap up their ALDS in four.

Davis, 58, was hired in October 2017 after spending the previous six seasons as a hitting coach with the Boston Red Sox (2015-17) and Oakland Athletics (2012-14).


Boston began the postseason 0-2 on the road at Cleveland in 2016 and again at Houston past year. No matter hard you throw, Major League Baseball hitters can time it up, especially if they know it's coming.

"They're strong at every spot, they've got a great starting rotation, their bullpen's good, they score runs, they're good defensively - very similar to our club", Dombrowski said.

Most of the games will be in primetime but there is one exception that could trouble those of us who work the classic Monday-Friday, 9-5 schedule.

"I don't know if it's motivation".

Cora was Houston's bench coach a year ago before he was hired by Boston. I think he's got a great feel for the game. "He's feeling better", Cora said. "Hopefully he keeps getting better and he'll be ready to go on Saturday".
