Brewers vs Athletics: Week 2's prediction for the World Series

Two weeks are gone in the MLB season. Plenty of teams that were taken with a grain of salt or even discounted before the season are pulling ahead in the early going. Other predicted contenders aren’t doing so well. Then again, it is early, and that can happen before teams settle into a groove. But as it stands, let’s look at what would happen if the playoffs started as of Tuesday, April 15, before the day’s games: Continue reading If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 2 »

On the first Sunday night baseball match up this season, the Red Sox will face off against their AL East rival the New York Yankees in the finale of a four game series. The Yankees have won two out of the first three games played and the Red Sox look to come away with a series split. The Red Sox only win came on Friday, beating the Yankees 4-2 which gave Jon Lester his first win of the season. Although the Red Sox bats have been somewhat quiet during this series the pitching has not been all that bad outside of Lackey’s tough start yesterday. The Sox look to Felix Doubront tonight to turn things around and split the four game series.

Doubront’s last start was a tough one against the Texas Rangers only going 2 and 2/3 innings allowing 6 hits and 5 earned runs dropping him to 1-1 on the season. Ivan Nova who is also 1-1 on the season, will be taking the mound for the Yankees. Nova’s last outing was a tough one as he allowed seven runs on 10 hits in 3 and 2/3 innings against the Baltimore Orioles. Although tonight will not be a traditional pitching duel expect a competitive start from both starters under the national spotlight. The Sunday night baseball atmosphere never really seems to disappoint the fans of ether ball club. With the Red Sox coming off a tough loss yesterday they are looking to get back on track, so it should be a well fought out game between the two teams.

Players to watch tonight for the Red Sox are Felix Doubront to see how he reacts after a rough outing against the Rangers, David Ortiz who is 3-10 in the series look for him for some run support with the short field in right field. Keep an eye Red Sox rookies Xander Bogaerts and Jackie Bradley Jr. as well to see how they handle the atmosphere of playing Sunday night baseball in Yankee Stadium. As the captain for the Yankees Derek Jeter is sitting this game out due to a tight quadriceps. Keep an eye out for Ivan Nova to see if he can bounce back from his rough outing against the Orioles, Brian McCann who has been hot this series to see if he can keep his bat going, and former Red Sox Jacoby Ellsbury who also has had a hot series being on the other side of the rivalry.

Red Sox vs Yankees Preview

The Boston Red Sox (4-5) and the New York Yankees (4-5), commonly referred to as the greatest rivalry in baseball, will meet tonight in New York for the first time in the 2014 season. The Red Sox are coming off a big comeback win against the Texas Rangers and the Yankees are looking to stop a 2 game skid. Last year held very different stories for these two historic franchises. The Red Sox, of course, went from the worst team in 2012 to World Series champions in 2013. The Yankees, on the other hand, are coming off a poor season missing the playoffs for only the second time in nineteen years. Continue reading Red Sox vs Yankees Preview »

Anticlimactic Opener

I understand that it’s only 7 games into the season, but something is already missing. Where’s the magic? After an ending like last year, how could this season for the Red Sox start off so slow? First off, the Sox lost their season opener to the Baltimore Orioles, but it was a well-pitched affair on both sides. The Red Sox had the hits, they just couldn’t seem to link enough of them together to make something happen. The Sox did go on to win their next two games in Baltimore, until last night, those were the only wins they had.

Rough Weekend

Next, Opening Day rolled around, and don’t get me wrong, the opening ceremony was spectacular, but the Sox did drop the opener to the Milwaukee Brewers. Continue reading Did the Red Sox Burn Out Their Clutch? »
