To tie you over until then, here are a few notes:
– Game times for the ALCS have been released.
Game times ALCS 8:07 Game 1; 8:15 Game 2; 4:37 Game 6, 8:07 Game 7— Gordon Edes (@GordonEdes) October 10, 2013
–Really no surprise on this next one:
Farrell on #ALCS roster: "We don't anticipate any roster changes from what we set out in DS roster. We reviewed, will stay as we've been."— Boston Red Sox (@RedSox) October 10, 2013
This comes from manager John Farrell's weekly chat with WEEI-FM's "Salk and Holley Show."
No injuries and a very effective bullpen during the ALDS made this an easy decision for Farrell.
–Speaking of John Farrell:
Another no-brainer here.
Jake Peavy will be the only starter that would not be on full rest for Sunday night's Game 2. It makes sense to wait and see who Boston plays first to see which pitcher matches up better against the lineup and the ballpark.
Farrell's toughest decision may be who pitches Game3 s they will be on full rest to start Game 7, if the series goes that far.
Expect Jon Lester to pitch Game 5 next Thursday provided it is needed.
–Lastly, a bit of non-Red Sox news:
The New York Yankees and Joe Girardi agreed Wednesday to a four-year contract extension. It looks like both sides got what they wanted and Girardi will be a familiar sight in the visitors dugout at Fenway for the years to come.
