The Boston Red Sox are sitting at home awaiting their opponent for the 2018 World Series.Boston dominated the Houston Astros over five
games in the American League Championship Series to secure its berth in the Fall
Classic against either the Los Angeles Dodgers or Milwaukee Brewers.The Red Sox
are in an ideal position Carlos Carrasco Jersey , as they'll be more rested for the World Series and get to start the best-of-seven series at Fenway Park.Outside of the facts
mentioned above, we don't know much about what will take place during the
series, but we'll find out more as soon as Friday if the Dodgers close out the
NLCS in Milwaukee. 2018 World Series ScheduleGame 1:Tuesday, October 23 (Time
TBD, Fox)Game 2:Wednesday, October 24 (Time TBD, Fox)Game 3:Friday, October 26
(Time TBD, Fox)Game 4:Saturday, October 27 (Time TBD, Fox)Game 5:Sunday, October

October 31 (Time TBD Roy Oswalt Jersey , Fox)Known InfoRed Sox Will Be Fresh Entering World SeriesAfter clinching the American League pennant Thursday, the Red Sox earned
four valuable days off before beginning the World Series at home.The rest
matters most to the pitching staff, which was managed well in the ALCS by
manager Alex Cora.Chris Sale, who was slated to start Game 6 of the ALCS, is
most likely going to take the ball for Game 1 of the World Series with over a
week of rest.David J. Phillip/Associated PressALCS Game 5 starter David Price
would be in line to start Game 2 for the Red Sox if they keep the same rotation
from the first two postseason series.In that case, Price would be working on
five days of rest, which is something you rarely see in the postseason.The
extended layoff will also benefit the Boston bullpen, and it gives Cora an
opportunity to use Nathan Eovaldi or Rick Porcello in relief during the first
two games of the series.Cora could opt to use his projected starters for Games 3
and 4 for an inning or two of relief, like he did during the ALCS, to bridge the
gap between the starters and closer Craig Kimbrel. Porcello also pitched in
relief during the ALDS against the Yankees.Regardless of which strategy Cora
employs, his pitchers will be fresher than the NL champion, who will have three
days off at most, with at least one of them reserved for travel. Game 7 of the
NLCS would be Saturday night, if necessary. World Series Opens At Fenway
ParkBoston clinched home-field advantage in the World Series because it recorded
the best regular-season record in baseball (108-54).During the regular season,
the Red Sox were 57-24 at Fenway Park, but they were only 2-2 there in the first
two rounds of the postseason.The team did go up against two of the best road
teams in Major League Baseball.Elise Amendola/Associated PressThe Houston Astros
and New York Yankees both had better road marks than the two teams left in the
National League.In their last three World Series appearances http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-carlos-lee-jersey , all of which have resulted in championships, the Sox won all but one of the
first two games at home.Boston took the first two games of the 2004 and 2007
World Series on its way to sweeps of St. Louis and Colorado, while it split
Games 1 and 2 with the Cardinals in 2013 before claiming the title in six
games.If the Red Sox get off to a similar start Tuesday and Wednesday, they'll
enter either Dodger Stadium or Miller Park with a two-game lead and the
opportunity to add to their five road victories in the postseason. Follow Joe on

their third consecutive AL East championship Thursday night, clinching on enemy

one victory to match the franchise record held by the 1912 World Series
champions.It took three tries, but these Red Sox finally earned their chance to
celebrate at Yankee Stadium under rookie manager Alex Cora.After starter Eduardo
