Daily Red Sox Links: Chris Sale, Pablo Sandoval, Dustin Pedroia

Today’s links look at Chris Sale’s impact on the Red Sox, Pablo Sandoval’s contract, and Eduardo Rodriguez’ recovery. You can’t possibly overstate Chris Sale’s impact on the Red Sox. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe) Pablo Sandoval is on the disabled list, and Boston probably doesn’t need to rush him back. (Michael Silverman; Boston Herald) Is Sandoval’s contract the worst of all time? (Tim Britton; Providence Journal) As if we needed another sign for a strong future for Andrew Benintendi, his ability to break out of his major slump bodes extremely well. (Cam Ellis; BP...

Red Sox at Royals lineup: Can the prodigy wreak havoc?

Red Sox at Royals lineup: Can the prodigy wreak havoc?

The infamous Chris Sale takes the mound tonight in Kansas City. The Red Sox (39-31) look to score some runs — any runs — for ace Chris Sale (2.82 ERA) when they square off against the Royals (34-35) tonight in Kansas City (8:15 p.m., NESN). Lefty Matt Strahm (3.67 ERA), whatever that is, starts for KC. Pablo Sandoval is on the DL with an ear infection which... shouldn’t hurt the team too much tonight, or any other night. Given the Royals are starting a southpaw, Andrew Benintendi and Mitch Moreland sit for Chris Young and Sam Travis, respectively. Lefty-killer Josh Rutledge plays...

Red Sox 8, Royals 3: Runs for Sale; First place for Sox

Red Sox 8, Royals 3: Runs for Sale; First place for Sox

Well, that was neat. Isn’t it great when a plan comes together? The Red Sox, with the Yankees continuing their recent horrible stretch of baseball, had a chance at sole possession of first place in the American League East. All they needed was to, ya know, win the game. To do that they were going to need a better offensive performance than what they’ve put forth of late, and in particular better than what they’ve given Chris Sale over the course of the season. Well, they did so, and they got yet another ace performance from Sale. It was a great win all around. We’ll start with Sale,...

Red Sox "Sale" Into First Place With 8-3 Pasting Of KC

(AP Photo)Finally, Chris Sale got some run support. The lefty's teammates put up eight runs on thirteen hits—allowing them to move into sole possession of first place in the AL East. The 8-3 win was paced by Xander Bogaerts (2-5, 2 RBIs), Sandy Leon (2-4, 2 RBIs) and Deven Marrero (2-2, RBI). All this offense was done with three top contributors on the bench—Dustin Pedroia, Andrew Benintendi and Mitch Moreland. For Sale's part, he once set down 19 Royals in a row—until a blip in the ninth. He finished with 8.1 innings, three earned runs and just four hits. In his ninth win of 2017, he...
