Red Sox at Mets lineup: Happy Sale Day!

Except imagine he’s wearing yellow. | Brian Fluharty-USA TODAY Sports Boogeyman gets another postseason tuneup tonight against the Mets. The Red Sox and Mets finish up their two-games series tonight at Fenway Park with Chris Sale on the mound for the good guys (7:10 p.m., NESN, ESPN out-of-market). Sale didn’t look like CHRIS SALE the last time out, and he looks to get back into form after his second bout with COVID-19, with his final start currently lining up with the last day of the regular season. It would be nice to have Sale available as a starter or reliever...

The decision to start Chris Sale on Wednesday is the correct one

Photo by Adam Glanzman/ The easy choice is sometimes the right one. The Red Sox are in a very good position for the wildcard race, and while it’s certainly not at all wrapped up they are in the driver’s seat and more or less control their own destiny. They certainly deserve a good chunk of the credit, as they are playing good baseball at an important time, but the schedule makers also did them a favor. As we’ve already talked about here as well, it’s not just the quality of competition — four of their last five series are against teams with a losing record —...

The Red Sox pitching staff was hit hard during Boston’s COVID-19 outbreak, but with some improvisation in the bullpen (especially in the closer role) and some guest appearances from Triple-A Worcester, the group largely managed to make it through.

Red Sox 7, Orioles 1: Takin’ care of business

Photo by Adam Glanzman/ Sale didn’t look like vintage Sale, but it worked. Over these last couple of weeks the mission in Boston is simply to beat the teams you are supposed to beat. It’s easier said than done, though it looked fairly easy on Friday. They did actually fall behind briefly when Chris Sale, who wasn’t working with his best stuff, gave up an early solo homer. But the southpaw worked around his relatively lackluster stuff, and the offense steadily added on against Baltimore’s pitching staff to ultimately pull away and win handily. The Red Sox are...
