Red Sox at A’s lineup: Happy Sale Day! This one’s for 9 in a row

The Red Sox never lose, so why would tonight be any different? The Red Sox (17-2) look to win their ninth straight game when they face the Oakland A’s (9-11) tonight (9:05 p.m., NESN) behind Chris Sale. About tonight’s game: You can’t predict baseball, but you’d be forgiven if you had doubts about Oakland’s chances tonight. Sale (1-0, 1.23 ERA) is Chris Sale, and while Sean Manaea (2-2, 1.63 ERA) is good, he’s not Chris Sale. The Red Sox have won nine games in a row and the A’s aren’t too good, is what I’m saying. J.D. Martinez is back for the Sox and hot-hitting Mitch...

Silverman: Reasons for Red Sox early success begins with starting rotation

Silverman: Reasons for Red Sox early success begins with starting rotation

Considering that every facet to the Red Sox — offense, defense, bench, manager, coaches, relievers, starters, video coordinator — has played its part in the team’s incredible 2018 start, there is no single secret to the success.But if you accept the challenge that finding an origin story to this tale is a worthy endeavor, then the place to begin is with the starting rotation.The Big Four of Chris Sale, David Price, Rick Porcello and Eduardo Rodriguez have kept nearly every game under control.The starters keep the other teams’ offense in check — heading into last night, their 2.06...

Chris Sale is dominating, but looks different

Chris Sale is dominating, but looks different

Should we be worried about some Chris Sale trends? Chris Sale is an incredible pitcher. I’m sorry to share this controversial opinion with all of you, but sometimes you just have to jump out onto that ledge. There are going to be some criticisms and worries about the Red Sox ace later in this post, so I just want to get out of the way early that I recognize and fully acknowledge that Boston has one of the truly elite pitchers in the game, and I get as psyched as anyone for any given Sale Day. It’s the best day of the week, after all. We should never take for granted how lucky we are...

Red Sox 3, Orioles 1: Red Sox win the baseball game in non-baseball weather.

The Red Sox are now 13-2. Pretty good! The Red Sox and Orioles played on Sunday despite it not really being baseball weather. It was freezing, with temperatures in the low-to-mid-30s, the wind was howling and there was precipitation at points. It was miserable, is what I’m trying to say. The weather had to be a miserable experience for pitchers and hitters alike, though the former had the advantage in this one. Chris Sale didn’t quite look like himself and was oddly inefficient without his best stuff, but he still managed to have a Chris Sale day because he is incredible. The offense,...

Red Sox vs. Orioles lineup: Chris Sale looks to continue franchise-best start

Boston looks for their fourth straight win behind Sale this afternoon at Fenway. The Red Sox (12-2) look to pound the Baltimore Orioles (5-10) for the third straight day behind ace Chris Sale (1-0, 1.06 ERA) this afternoon at Fenway Park (1:05 p.m., NESN, MLBN out-of-network). About today’s game: In what would seem to be bad news for the flailing Orioles, Sale makes his fourth start of the season today. In what would seem to be overdue good news for Baltimore, they send out Dylan Bundy (0-1, 1.35 ERA), a pitcher who is actually good. Mookie Betts sits after departing yesterday’s game...
