Chris Sale is better than Nathan Eovaldi

BOOGEYMAN. | Brian Fluharty-USA TODAY Sports That is not a knock on Nate, folks. The first thing to know about this whole discussion is that it’s all academic. The question of who should potentially start the single wild card playoff game is really going to come down to how hard the Sox have to charge to get there in the first place, not what they’d do if they had their druthers. This is all just a thought experiment. The thought experiment, as you can glean from the headline, regards Chris Sale and Nathan Eovaldi. It has been percolating in the Twitters recently...

Red Sox vs. Orioles lineups: Chris Sale is better than Baltimore

Pictured: the ace. | Brian Fluharty-USA TODAY Sports The Sox should win tonight behind their ace (Chris Sale). The Red Sox return to Boston to face the Orioles at Fenway Park tonight behind Chris Sale (7:10 p.m., NESN). They should win. The Orioles aren’t just bad, they’re imploding and acting out, and they’re ripe for the picking. It’s time to sweep them behind Sale, who is the ace of the staff. Just saying this again for my Nate the Great fans, who love it so much, yes they do. Keegan Akin, who is on neither Sale’s nor Eovaldi’s level, starts for...

Game 149 Gamethread: Red Sox vs. Orioles

The Red Sox have made it to the (mostly) soft part of their schedule, but we know games aren’t played on paper. They need to take care of business this weekend against an Orioles. Anything less than two out of three is unacceptable, and really this should be a sweep. That, of course, requires a win tonight. It’ll be Chris Sale taking on Keegan Akins. First pitch is set for 7:10 PM ET.

Photo by Jonathan Daniel/ This is not breaking any news to anyone who’s been paying even a little bit of attention, but the Red Sox have some problems on defense. And as Sean McAdam writes, it could prove to be a fatal flaw. (Sean McAdam; Boston Sports Journal) On Monday, it was an error from Kyle Schwarber that proved to all but cost the Red Sox the game. Despite that, Jason Mastrodonato argues they have to keep playing him at first. (Jason Mastrodonato; Boston Herald) While things do look bad for the Red Sox right now, the saving grace is that this season has been...

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...
