Maybe if there was a way to let Keuchel pitch for his old team our hitters would break out.

He would probably pitch a perfect game!

Just win the next game and move on. I would imagine the Sox pitchers know the plan, but this secrecy about the rotation, if they don’t , can’t inspire confidence. I think cease starts game 3 hopefully he has his control and the Sox win. Game 4 should be all hands on deck, and let Hendriks go multiple innings if needed, because if they win, they get another off day, and I say let Gio go game 5 in Houston. He had really good stuff yesterday. I think he was trying to be too perfect, and it cost him. He goes out with that same stuff, maybe the Sox get a break or two and beat McCullers. 

it seems depressing, but nothing really has changed. They were always going to have to win a game in Houston or if they had HFA, win all of their home games. 

This - backs against the wall…this was never going to be easy…just do this Sox. One at a time….get Er done!!!

Win three games in a row.

Edit: Just think how awesomely embarrassing that would be for the Trashtros.

Sunday night baseball with two large markets will likely be dwarfed by SNF and two small markets Bills-Chiefs. 

Bills-Chiefs are small markets but have a national following with Josh Allen and Patrick Mahones.

That would be great, but the Sox have won two post-season games since the 2005 WS. This is going to be tough.

Cease has given up 3 or less runs in 5 or more innings in 13 of his last 15 starts (including his last start in which he pitched 4 innings but was taken out after 69 pitches.

I feel more confident in Dylan than anyone else in the rotation at this point. If the Sox can go Dylan for 5, Kopech for 2, and Hendricks for 2 I think the Astros will be struggling to score. Ideally, the Sox can get some big offense early to save Hendricks for game 4. 

If I were a betting man, I would bet on the Sox in game 3.

I think there’s a strong chance they will be trying to save Kopech today, or at least not having him be the first man out.

Unless they're up by 10, they should not be trying to "save" anybody in an elimination game. Worry about tomorrow tomorrow.

I dont know.

The 1st 2 games have been demoralizing. This is what I was afraid off.  We kept coasting and seem to be playing that way in the playoffs while the team we are playing knows how to turn up the heat in playoffs.

We have been out pitched, out hit (zero XB hits), out managed, out played on defense.

Every aspect of the game we have been outplayed. 

We just need to win the next game and see what happens 

But Robert has been fun to watch. He has been like that biker kid that joined the Bad News Bears and was the one guy good enough he could have played on the other team.

My thought exactly.  Win today's game then tie it up tomorrow.  This team is capable of winning 3 straight.

Stop playing so sloppy. I can’t stand another throw from the outfield landing somewhere random in the infield.

Hopefully today is the day they flip that switch.
