LET'S GO YANKEES

WE WANT BOSTON!!! Gonna try and get tix for game 3.  I went to game 3 of the ALDS last year when Tanaka shut down the Tribe and Bird hit that HR.  It's great to see the new stadium feel like the old stadium again.

Could be time to re-reverse the curse!

As I feared, it isn't the 4th or 5th starter that matters in the playoffs it is the relievers.  Why the hell the Cubs got rid of Wade Davis is beyond me.  Cheap a** move IMO.  You can't have enough relief pitching and certainly with inevitable injuries (Marrow, Strop) it decimated their chances.  Now they will have a VERY expensive starting rotation if they bring back Hamels and Quintana.  Quintana should be a no brainer, hell they gave up Eloy Jimenez for him so they damn well better sign him for 10.5 million.  Hamels is going to cost 20 million and I could see them letting him hit free agency as the 20m is a club option.  I'd let him hit FA, then sign him for 2 years 30 million or thereabouts.  Darvish isn't a sure thing and a year from now, who knows if he even pitches again.  Pain free and being able to pitch at the big league level are two different things.

Wilson is probably gone, but hope they keep Montgomery.  They need to sign 2 relief guys, one lefty and one righty.  I wouldn't mind them going Miller, Kimbrel!!!!  We gotta also move on from Happ, IMO.  However, with I HOPE THEY LET GO Addison Russell, Javy has to go to SS and Happ to 2nd in a platoon with Zobrist, who has 1 year left.

Almora - cf
Zobrist - 2b
Bryant - 3b
Baez - ss
Rizzo - 1b
Contreras - C
Schwarber - lf
Heyward - rf

Got Happ/Bote/Caratini on the bench in that scenario.  Relief, relief, relief!!!!

The Sox bullpen is the lone reason I don't think they can win it all. However, Go Sox!

Impressive performance on both sides of the ball by Boston. Wasn't expecting that against Severino. 1 more to go (A little premature in the 7th). However if the yanks come back I'll glady eat my crow.
