The Red Sox need just four more wins to clinch a World Series title, but they’ll have to do it against the best from the NL in the St. Louis Cardinals. Game 1 of the World Series starts tonight at Fenway Park.
Former relief pitcher and MLB Network analyst Mitch Williams joined 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Toucher & Rich to discuss the start of the battle for a championship.
They started off discussing the DH position and how the Red Sox will handle it once the series moves to St. Louis. The Sox will most likely take Mike Napoli out and plug David Ortiz in at first base. How much will Boston miss Napoli’s bat in the lineup in the NL park?
They moved on to talk about St. Louis’ closer and set up pitchers. Carlos Martinez was a big name in the minors, how does he look as a setup guy for the Cardinals?
The Sox struggled at times in the series with the Tigers to put up run. Should Sox fans worry about being able to score runs against the Cardinals?
