Red Sox vs. Astros ALDS Preview

The Yankees Twins winner won't face this guy until Game 2

The Yankees Twins winner won't face this guy until Game 2

Houston manager A.J. Hinch loves that Justin Verlander, his starter for Game 1 of the American League Division Series against the Boston Red Sox on Thursday, has a ton of postseason experience.

The Astros at the plate again, and Jose Altuve yaks his second home run of the game to add to Houston's lead.

Nunez, who has played only one game since September 9, said he's ready.

"To improve that ballclub you have to get someone who is better than the guys that you have, " Luhnow told The Post as he stood outside the Astros dugout Wednesday.

Fans who don't get those networks should plan on finding a sports bar that does, and 'Stro Stories will be posting a comprehensive list of such establishments shortly. I know that this team will be good at least for the next five years until we're going to have to start paying some of these good money.

Out of our remaining lefties that we have, I trust right-hander Hoyt over Tony Sipp and Reymin Guduan to which the latter has been absolutely horrific and although Hoyt hasn't pitched lights out (he has 3.33 ERA and 1.59 WHIP since the All-Star break), I think he's worthy of a playoff spot because we need another guy that's good against lefties. In three career appearances (two starts) against the Red Sox, Keuchel is 0-1 with a 9.88 ERA.

Donald Trump calls Las Vegas gunman 'demented'
Police stormed his room and found he had killed himself after committing the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history. I don't know why bad things happen to good people, but they do in this world, and what happened in Las Vegas was awful .

"I think the beauty inside of Chris Sale is that he focuses exclusively on the things that he can control. he's done such an excellent job of that coming in with all the expectations and the highlight from the trade", Farrell said. (7-4, 4.25), Charlie Morton (14-7, 3.62) and Collin McHugh (5-2, 3.55) all could throw Game 4. Crane says the patches on team uniforms that say "Houston Strong" gives the team a little extra motivation. "You get a little amped up sometimes and that can kind of go insane". It's going to be a grind. "The way he attacks every day, he's always trying to get better". Verlander has pitched stellar outings and provides a boost to the club. "He's done it for a real long time". The surefire Rookie of the Year and AL MVP contender was 2 for 4 with an absolute bullet of a two-run home run in the AL Wild Card Game against Minnesota and should be fully locked in for this series.

The skinny Sale does it his way, no over-reliance on the scouting report. While the 104-win Dodgers and 102-win Indians appear to be on a collision course to face one another in this year's Fall Classic, both teams may have already played their best baseball this season.

"No excuses", Sale said. I'm not sure they can, but if they do pull off the upset, they will have a real shot at hoisting their first championship since entering the league in 1962. We fought hard all year.

One key stat to know: Sale led all starters with a 36.2 percent strikeout rate, the third-highest rate ever for a starter.

Verlander and Keuchel will see a Red Sox lineup that has power bats in the middle of their lineup. "They don't strike out a lot, they put the bat on the ball". They battled through a rough stretch in the dog days and bounced back only to lose the best record in the American League to a historic run by the Cleveland Indians. They can all run well. They're here for a reason.
