So the reigning AL Cy Young Award winner is throwing mop-up?

Re: 2017 MLB Playoffs, Division Series Edition

I like a lot of the Red Sox players, but I would say this is one of the weakest Red Sox playoff teams of recent memory. I think they were last in the majors in home runs this year, and neither Sale or Price have much of a record of post season success (and Price isn't even a post season starter now.)

Yeah, they still have hitters but didn't replace Papi's power, and guys like Pedroia and Bogaerts were pretty mediocre this year.

Yanks lineup severely overmatched by Cleveland pitching. This is going to be a short series.

Re: 2017 MLB Playoffs, Division Series Edition

Hard to imagine a more crucial Game 1 for the Dodgers: Clayton Kershaw vs Taijuan Walker, the Diamondback' #3 starter thanks to that wacky WC game on Wednesday where the D-backs spent their top two starters. If the Dodgers can't win tonight, it's over.

Sale has a history of slowing down late in the season. His career ERA in September and later is the high 3's. Still respectable, but not ace like. He pitches a lot of innings every year and they'll need to find ways to rest him next year so that he's ready to roll in the playoffs. Unfortunately for the Red Sox, John Farrell isn't the guy that will figure it out.

They sure did and it's not going to get any easier with Kluber tonight. Hopefully they sneak one out but yeah it feels like it'll be a short one.

If the Indians make it to the World Series, can Cleveland please let Charlie Sheen throw out the first pitch.

Re: 2017 MLB Playoffs, Division Series Edition

I see the Red Sox got permission from MLB to add OF Chris Young
to the roster to replace Eduardo Nunez.

Didn't take long for the Tribe to get the 2 back that Kluber spotted the Yanks.

Yikes - that looked ugly for Encarnacion. Probably will get reversed on replay to boot.

The Playoffs are so weird. Yearly numbers just don't bear out all the time. Plus in a short series, you might hit the outlier in the law of averages.

I'm hoping the trend of aces getting lit up continues tonight with Kershaw.

Bird launches one. Towering drive. 8-3 Yanks.

I think the CC veteran presence on the field helped calm nerves. I was worried about him as the SP to be honest.
