The Red Sox showed very little rust, a very prolific offense and stout pitching through the first two games of the ALDS.
The Rays will head into Game 3 against a Clay Buchholz whom they have had no answer for in just two starts this season. Over 14 innings against Tampa Bay, the pitcher who came back from injury this season gave up no earned runs.
While the series is hardly a given, it’s certainly worth our time to take a gander at this amazing Red Sox team and what it needs to do to continue to waltz on down the playoff road.
MLB Contributor Gabe Zaldivar does just that with some thoughts on Boston and the tools it should lean on as it moves deeper into the postseason.
As you will see, it’s basically a little bit of everything.
In just two games against a scorching-hot Rays team, the Red Sox showed why they may very well be the best team in all of MLB this year.
Offense, pitching and depth: This team may very well have it all.
