Speaking to reporters Thursday, Sale opened up about his showing in Game 2 of the AL Division Series, when he exited after one inning having allowed five runs on four hits, and his outing in the regular-season finale, which lasted just 2 1/3 innings.
He didn't hold back, either.
“I've been absolutely horrible,” he said. “Probably my two worst...

Chris Sale will be getting the ball in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series.
And if the Boston Red Sox pitcher looks like he's figured something out after his last two disappointing outings , he might have teammate Nathan Eovaldi to thank .
“He's one of those guys where it really doesn't take much for him to get back on track,” Eovaldi told The Athletic's Jen McCaffrey on Wednesday before the team traveled to Tampa to start the series with the Rays. “I don't think he was that far off.

Boston and New York met in the American League Championship Series when things got heated. Martinez threw near the head of Karim Garcia in the top of the fourth inning with the Red Sox down 3-2. Garcia had some words for Martinez and both benches were warned.
Manny Ramirez stepped to the dish in the home half of the fourth after the Yankees went up 4-2 when Roger Clemens threw a pitch a little too close...

When Kyle Schwarber was traded to the Boston Red Sox at Major League Baseball's trade deadline, there were several questions about where he'd fit on the team.
