The Red Sox celebrated their 2018 World Serie Antworten

s title with the parade that rolled throughBostonon Wednesday , capping off a season that included winning 108 regular-season games and dispatching the New York Yankees, Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers in the postseason.Not only did the Red Sox win their fourth world championship since 2004 and ninth in team history, but they are also being compared with some of the greatest teams in Major League Baseball history.The Red Sox are clearly in a strong position for the future, and they are the co-favorites to win the 2019 World Series along with the Astros. Both teams are +700 favorites (bet $100 to win $700) to win the World Series next year, per OddsShark.Top 10 World Series favorites for 20191. Boston Red Sox, +7001. Houston Astros, +7003. New York Yankees, +8003. Los Angeles Dodgers, +8005. Chicago Cubs, +9006. Cleveland Indians, +12007. Milwaukee Brewers, +14007. Atlanta Braves, +14009. Washington Nationals, +18009. St. Louis Cardinals, +1800The Red Sox clearly have some concerns going into the offseason, and two of the biggest involve closer Craig Kimbrel and Nathan Eovaldi.Kimbrel has been an excellent closer for the Red Sox the past three seasons, although he struggled quite a bit in the postseason. He will be a free agent in the offseason, and the Red Sox are going to have to decide if they want to bring him back and at what price.Eovaldi proved his value several times during the regular season and then cemented his status in the postseason. With a fastball that exceeds 100 miles per hour, Eovaldi is a major presence on the mound. However, it was the command that had eluded him prior to this year that made him a special pitcher in the offseason.He pitched six-plus innings in Game 3 of the World Series Ubaldo Jimenez Jersey , and while he ultimately suffered the loss in that 18-inning game when he surrendered a walk-off home run to Max Muncy, he steadied the Red Sox when they needed it most. Manager Alex Cora cited him in front of the team after the heartbreaking loss for his brilliant performance, and his teammates gave him a standing ovation.Eovaldi is alsoa free agent, and bringing him back would be a positive move for the pitching staff.The Astros could lose free-agent pitchers Dallas Keuchel and Charlie Morton. While they might be able to survive one of those two pitchers leaving, losing both would be a problem for the 2017 World Series winners.The Yankees are usually one of the top offseason stories, and they traded for Giancarlo Stanton last year. The Bronx Bombers could make a move for a free-agent pitcher such as Arizona left-hander Patrick Corbin or possibly get involved in the Manny Machado or Bryce Harper sweepstakes.The Dodgers seem unlikely to bring Machado back, but they may need to address their bullpen after significant failures in that area during the World Series.Offseason moves will clearly impact the odds on which team will win the 2019 World Series, and the numbers are quite fluid and could change frequently in the offseason. The Boston Red Sox are clearly comfortable playing on the road.After recording a 51-30 mark away from Fenway Park during the regular season, the Red Sox went 2-0 in the American League Division Series at Yankee Stadium to clinch that series. They bludgeoned the Bronx Bombers in one game and hung on for a close victory in the other, so the 108-win team should be confident it can play in the noise cauldron that is Minute Maid Park in the American League Championship Series.However, it will not be easy. The Houston Astros have dominated postseason baseball at home, recording a 10-1 mark since the start of last October when they faced the Red Sox, Yankees, Dodgers and Indians (this year's ALDS).The Astros will send left-hander Dallas Keuchel to the mound to subdue Mookie Betts, J.D. Martinez, Xander Bogaerts and Andrew Benintendi. Betts had two doubles in Boston's Game 2 victory, while the Red Sox are hoping that Martinez can show off some of his power that allowed him to hit 43 home runs and drive in 130 runs this season. Martinez homered in his first postseason at-bat in the ALDS, but he has not hit a long ball since.Mike Petriello mike_petrielloKeuchel vs Eovaldi tonight. Its huge in the context of the ALCS, obviously, but its also interesting to think that these are going to be 2 of the top 3-4 FA SP available this winter. cwF0h7aF4wBoston will start hard-throwing Nathan Eovaldi Joey Rickard Jersey , and the former Tampa Bay Ray hopes to emulate his Game 3 performance against the Yankees. Eovaldi dominated that strike zone in New York, pitched seven innings, gave up five hits, one run, struck out five and did not walk a batter.Theright-hander is going to attempt to hold down Alex Bregman, George Springer, Yuli Gurriel and Jose Altuve. Bregman, one of the game's best clutch hitters, is 0-for-3 in the series against the Red Sox with six walks.Eovaldi allowed four solo home runs when he pitched against the Astros on June 20 with the Rays, but he is throwing more cutters now."I definitely feel it's gotten the hitters off my fastball and then it's allowed me to get some earlier contact and go deeper into the games and not have to be so perfect with my fastball," Eovaldi said, per Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe. "And I'm able to mix in other pitches along with that and kind of go from there."The Red Sox and the Astros will meet at 5:09 p.m. Tuesday, and the game will be televised by TBS. It can be live-streamed at MLB.TV.The Astros are minus-135 favorites to win Game 3, while the Red Sox are plus-115 underdogs, per OddsShark(an Astros bettor would have to wager $135 to earn a $100 profit, while a Red Sox backer would risk $100 to win $115).

Since Hader threw just eight pitches in the game, Counsell is not likely to hesitate to call on Hader at a key moment in Game 4.The Dodgers are minus-160 favorites to win Game 4, while the Brewers are plus-135 underdogs.
