Red Sox vs. Indians, ALCS
Questions for the Sox:
- Will Francona drop the deuce? He should. Schilling v. Caromona gives the Sox a better chance of picking up one of those games, while Matsuzaka has a better chance of outpitching Westbrook.
- Can the Sox win at least one of the likely two Beckett v. Sabathia battles? Take at least one each from Sabathia and Carmona, and the Sox win in six.
- Whose bullpen is stronger? Cleveland's got the power setup arms, but Borowski is awful. Papelbon is not.
- Which offense will we see? The one from the first seven innings against an inconsistent Weaver, or the one from the eighth inning against the usually dominant Speier?
I shouldn't make predictions, but I'm guessing Sox in 6.
Discuss amongst yourselves.
