David Price

World Series Champion SP David Price reaffirmed that he will stay with the team he helped lead to a World Series title.

After losing the first nine playoff decisions of his career, Price was the winning pitcher in the AL Championship Series clincher against Houston. He then won his first career World Series start, Game 2 against Los Angeles. He got two outs in Boston's 18-inning Game 3 loss, then started on three days' rest and delivered seven innings of three-hit ball to help eliminate the Dodgers.

In all, Price was 3-1 with a 3.46 ERA this postseason and 2-0 with a 1.98 ERA in two starts and one relief appearance against the Dodgers.

Its a shame that Price and for that matter Eovaldi and perhaps the whole team didn't share in that MVP Award with Pearce for the World Series and Playoffs because it was truly a team effort, one which would be difficult to duplicate not only in baseball but in any sport.
I never saw so many players on any team contribute so much at the precise time when it was needed in the entire playoffs.

This is absolute craziness

Everyone knows Dave Roberts should have won MVP

NO ONE did more to help the Red Sox win

If it was that obvious why did you keep betting on his team?

Let's face it, Price did the exact opposite of everything you have ever said about him. I know you will not admit it but he was very good.

I hope you mean that in jest.
The Sox clearly were/are the best team in baseball for this season and shut up or at least shut up all of the critics(including me) who questioned whether they had what it takes to get by first the Yankees and Astros and then the Dodgers after winning 108 games.
No offense to the Dodgers but imo not only are the Sox, Yankees and Astros better than they are, but imo at best I don't think they are any better than the Indians, Rays or Athletics, and that they would not even make the playoffs or probably not even make it as a second wildcard if they were in the AL.

I had no idea going into the World Series that the fucking moron would bench his top 4 home run hitters just to start a all righty lineup against Sale and Price. And for him to do it 3 times was insanity.

Forget about his handling of the bullpen

Somehow he gets a contract extension and coach Q gets fired. What world are we living in ?

Its not what I said about him. It was historical fact. The best thingvthat could have happened to him was game 5 vs Houst up 3-1 in the series. No pressure. And he continued that confidence into the World Series.

I was surprised...and he pitched great

Doesn't take away from his 0-11 record prior to this year

Well, I have been a fan of Dave Roberts since 2004 when he was in Boston and I am an even bigger fan now. All I heard about was how good and deep the Dodgers were. Bottom line though, the players failed to get it done. All of them. Machado played every game and he sucked too.

Totally agree with GG. That being said, Sox were clearly the best team and deserved to win, but Roberts didnít give his team a chance to compete. You could have replaced him with a fucking laptop in the dugout and got the same results. Still canít believe what he did.

Price was phenomenal!

He wasn’t good but was kershaw? Jansen? Machado? The players sucked just as much as the manager. Maybe the 108 win team was just that much better

Agree Wayne. Yes, Sox were that much better. In the end, Dodgers had no answer for them. Just felt that Roberts didnít do his job and put his best players in a position to compete, and those that he did couldnít get it done. Too much analytics.

Not only was the 108 win team just that much better, but perhaps their dominance over NL teams not just this year but historically since interleague play begin says/means a lot also.
Imo no NL team this year would have fared any better than the Dodgers did, and would have been dispensed with just as easily in four or five games.
How does 16-3 record sound as Sox record against NL teams in WS beginning in 2004 through this one!!

Redsox win the World Series 10 out of 10 times even if the Dodgers had Sparky Anderson or Tony LaRussa managing the Dodgers

But, yeah...IMO Robets did more to help Boston win than any other playet

I always thought he was a horrendous manager and he somehow raised his ineptitude to a higher level.

Benching your top 4 home run hitters for 3 games ??

Bringing in Ryan Madson in critical innings when you had Urias, Maeda, Baez and Alex Wood in the pen ??


SHOCKED !!

SHOCKED he was not fired

The worst performance from a manager I have ever seen in the World series

Soooo...

you would have been fine with Cora benching JD , Betts. Bogaerts and Devers ?

Dodgers top 4 home run hitters = Boston's top 4 HR hityerd

Just as long as Bradley, Pearce, Benintendi, and the starter's did their job ?


Thats what Roberts did. He did not give his team a "chance" to win

He cut thrm off in the knees
