To be clear, Verlander would never call out his team or express any kind of anger toward a group that helped him win his first World Series last season, but honestly, he should be extremely frustrated with them.
You'll definitely see a much better effort out of the Red Sox than you did last October.
David Price got the first postseason win of his career, pitching six scoreless innings on just three days' rest. He finished the series 3 for 15, with nine runs driven in - a total surpassed in Red Sox franchise history in an ALCS only by David Ortiz (11 RBI in 2004) and Manny Ramirez (10 RBI in 2007). The Dodgers hold a 3-2 lead going into Game 6 of the NLCS on Friday night at Miller Park. Cora wasn't the one who homered twice and drove in nine runs in the ALCS, but he gave Bradley ample opportunity to find the player who eventually did.
"To win 108 games in a season, you've got to have a complete team and I think that was on display this series".
"That was very, very special, absolutely", Price said after the game. Before his homer run in Game 5, Martinez had just one postseason home run. Astros hitters made contact with only 12 of those 38 change-ups and they had an average exit velocity of 72 miles per hour - quite weak. Neither did, but the ump ruled that Caldwell interfered with Betts and called batter Jose Altuve out.

Anna Burns wins Man Booker prize for 'Milkman'
It's likely to bring a big boost to Burns, who has published two previous novels but is hardly a household name. The antagonist uses family, social pressure and even political affiliations to harass her.
What the ump says: "Here's the whole play", says Joe West. That trend continued in game five.
If Boston goes on to win the World Series, there needs to be a movie about Brasier's breakout year.
In his last appearance, Price went four-and-two-thirds innings. "This is what we set out to do when we come to spring training".
Martinez should have been retired on a strikeout looking for the second out of the inning.
Price, who spent the last two innings of the Boston's Game 4 win throwing in the bullpen, noted he thought he discovered something while preparing to come in, but he also changed up his pre-start routine. "Whether that means the team [for whom] it goes their way is better, or whether they got lucky, just got the bounces - baseball's so amusing, man". Altuve's potential two-run homer was wiped out. He only allowed one base runner, a big improvement, before getting Tony Kemp to fly out to Andrew Benintendi in left field to end the series and wrap up the AL pennant. Since being put first in the lineup, Bregman, one of the hottest hitters in all of baseball, went 0-9.
