74-75 on MLB up 2.13 units
Been winning on these playoffs after a rocky end to the regular season for me. The Astros were just easy money. Did the MLB not want anybody to watch that series? Why were the games at like 1PM Friday, Saturday, and Monday?
Red Sox at +127 for 3 units. Brock Holt hit for the first ever postseason cycle last game and Severino hardly warmed up for his start. CC Sabathia gets the start for the Yankees in this one against Porcello. Why are these division series not 7 games? Can we knock 10 games off the regular season and have longer playoffs please MLB? Mookie Betts has a 1.050 OPS in 35 plate appearances against CC, but the rest of the Red Sox are not all that great against him. I just think Boston’s bats are on fire right now and they can overcome a poor history against CC. Aaron Hicks is back in the lineup for the Yankees and Brock Holt is out of the lineup for the Red Sox in this one. Angel Hernandez will be the home-plate umpire tonight after getting not 1, not 2, but 3 calls overturned at first base last night. He is awful, so that will add some “fun” for both teams tonight. Aaron Boone could have done a lot better with his pitching decisions in Game 3, but I don’t expect that to change overnight. Red Sox get their first series clinching win in the new Yankee Stadium tonight and their first since 2004 at the Yankees.
