ALCS roundtable: Is starting Price in Game 2 a good idea?

ALCS roundtable: Is starting Price in Game 2 a good idea?

With all due respect to former Red Sox manager John Farrell and his 2013 World Series title with Boston, the Red Sox haven't had a manager as decisive, communicative, intellectual and player-friendly as Cora since Terry Francona took over the reins from Grady Little in 2004. Price has won two games in relief. But I'm not a big believer of like, he's clutch, he's not clutch.

Still in search of his first postseason win as a starter, David Price gets the call for the Red Sox in Game 2. Cora suggested that Price's short outing in the ALDS against the Yankees was owed to the opponent. "It just seems like as far as game-planning or matching up with them, it didn't work this year". "[As a starter], he's 0-9 with an ERA [of 6.08]". After four innings of play, the Yankees found themselves down 10-1 - an insurmountable hole the team never really recovered from. If you get caught up in the whole noise and madness, you're gonna be in trouble.

Boston began the postseason 0-2 on the road at Cleveland in 2016 and again at Houston previous year.

"Sometimes you struggle in the season against a team", Cora said. "We're better because of what happened a year ago". I know he was coming out of the bullpen, but what he did was good to see, now. But I think there was a strong case for keeping him in the "pen". He performed relatively well in two starts against the Astros this season, allowing five runs across 12 1/3 innings while posting an.811 WHIP. He also noted that Price pitched well out of the bullpen a year ago, making two appearances with 6 2/3 innings of scoreless relief against Houston.
