Red Sox Troll Yankees By Playing "New York, New York" After ALDS Win

"The Red Sox game right there and the Patriots game right there and you know, probably halftime of our game, the Red Sox game will be up or something".
Chris Sale starts for the Red Sox and Justin Verlander for the Astros. He gave up six earned runs in only three innings, and recorded just two strikeouts. Put him in the bullpen for Games 1 and 2, and have him penciled in to start Game 4.
A giant Red Sox hat was placed on the Arthur Fiedler memorial along the Esplanade this week. "This Astros team won 103 games and they are the defending champs", he explained.
With its quirky dimensions that include the Green Monster in left, Fenway can be hard for visiting teams defensively.
Boston Red Sox relief pitcher Craig Kimbrel (46) celebrates after the last out in game four of the 2018 ALDS playoff baseball series against the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium. Marwin Gonzalez has played just 24 regular-season innings in left field at Fenway plus the two games last October.
"The whole season he kind of struggled against the Yankees", Cora said.
Rookie Red Sox manager Alex Cora announced his first two starters as well. "I think he's going to make some adjustments and he'll be fine".
Cora was Houston's bench coach a year ago before he was hired by Boston.
Game 2 (Boston): Oct. 14 - 7:09 p.m. I don't know, I think we talk about, like in basketball, LeBron James. "Hopefully he keeps getting better and he'll be ready to go on Saturday.". As such, it might come as a surprise to fans that Cora has had to scream and yell at his team this season. 3B Eduardo Nunez appeared to injure himself while making the throw to first for the final out Tuesday.
