Money Line: -136.00 Boston (Away)
Result: Loss
Taking the RED SOX. I am not a huge Garrett Richards guy by any stretch of the word. And, for me, this price is a steal. Boston head and shoulders better than the Tigers. Back to Richards. You see that ugly yearly ERA and a huge 7.55 ERA last 8 and you think Detroit might be worth a look. Well, he has actually pitched decent on the road 4-2 4.14 ERA in 12 starts (2-4 6.81 8 starts home). He has faced decent teams on the road - Houston, Jays, Yanks, A's, Rays, Mets. So not look he was teeing off on basement clubs. Dropping 4 in row - off getting swept in Tampa, this is a must win. With a day off to get their mind right, Boston the only way to look here. Let us not be fooled by what we have seen in the 42 innings of Wily Peralta. 2 home starts, 9.2 innings 4 hits 6 walks, 4 strikeout. You buckled the Astros for 2.2 innings. Then you had a nice outing vs the reeling Twins going 7 innings with 4 walks. Make no mistake here, Boston is not the Twins. And I need to see more than 2 innings 2 walks 0 hits vs a good team before I take you seriously. 5 runs in 5 innings at the Angels. 5 runs in 5 innings at KC. At Twins for 6 runs in 3 innings. This is a must win spot for the Sox and I will lay the short number. 4* Money Maker BOSTON RED SOX
