From what I’ve seen through two games I don’t think the trends have Much value because Cleveland is hitting and pitching and the Red Sox are not doing either. I love pitching and defense but I also know you have to score as well to win. Perhaps a little home cooling is what the Red Sox need to kick them but the Tribe have already kicked it in to gear…
