Chris Sale's first career postseason start didn't go as planned

Chris Sale's first career postseason start didn't go as planned

Starters have not been announced yet, but it is fair to assume that the Red Sox will be using David Price, while the Astros send Lance McCullers to the mound.

The Red Sox have the bullpen edge since Boston can turn to Craig Kimbrel, one of the game's elite closers. They were swept by the Indians, as their bats fell silent at the most inopportune time one could fathom.

Altuve by himself outdid the Red Sox, outdid nearly all others who have played baseball in October. They beat the Red Sox 8-2 and gave Boston a 360-degree view of how their lineup can hurt teams in a bunch of different ways.

Netflix Is Doing Another Price Hike, Unfortunately
Although in somewhat of a classy move, Netflix was raising the price gradually, something they called "un-grandfathering". Netflix's 4K streaming plan, which provides higher-quality content, will cost $14 per month, a $2 increase.

Chris Sale has never pitched in the Major League Baseball playoffs. He missed extended time due to an elbow strain and arm stiffness, posting a 3.82 ERA in 11 starts.

The offense has been hit-or-miss, scoring just enough runs for the pitching to handle. The team continues to lead the American League West division as they look towards the playoffs. At other times, many fans question whether the Sox are deserving of such a high seed in the postseason. He last faced the Astros twice during the 2016 season as a member of the White Sox when he went 2-0 with a 2.81 ERA, striking out 18 while allowing 10 hits and walking one over 16 innings of work. Plus, Keuchel was one of the bright spots in the Houston Astros 2015 postseason, pitching a shutout in the Wild Card game against the New York Yankees.

Astros second baseman Jose Altuve has a legitimate case to win the American League Most Valuable Player Award, which will be handed out after the postseason. During the first half of the year, they had a team ERA of 3.93 (5th in MLB). With Pomeranz facing off against Dallas Keuchel. Houston smoked Sale; what should have been an epic pitchers' duel with Justin Verlander didn't come close to its billing.

The Houston Astros have posted some impressive numbers at the plate in 2017 and we saw that potential carry over in to game one of the ALDS on Thursday.

"To have the opportunity to once again be in the playoffs I could say I don't take it for granted anymore", he said. Both teams definitely have something to prove this time around. Houston is set with many All-Stars, as well as Boston.

If anything, he had too much velocity. Even though Boston's rotation is deeper, their offense will not be able to match Houston's. Could this be the year Boston hoists another World Series trophy? Leading the attack for the Astros was MVP candidate #Jose Altuve.

It said one of the choices considered in the audit would "incorporate the potential conclusion of our Norwich processing plant". Britvic is set to begin consultation with impacted employees and, under the plans, the site will close towards the end of 2019.

With the uncertainty of the rest of the series, it is unclear when Sale's next start will be. Porcello didn't have quite the year he had last year. "So for us, matching up we chose to go 1 Verlander, 2 Keuchel, which leaves open the option at the back end to do whatever we want if it ends up being a Game 5". For the past six months, they saw him hit.346 en route to his third career batting title. That's great during the regular season, but in the postseason, everyone's obsessing over every move.
