BREAKING: Chris Sale Is Named As Boston's Game One ALDS Starter

Red Sox president of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski announced today on MLB Network Radio that ace Chris Sale will be the team's Game One starter in the American League Division Series on October 5th at Fenway Park. This decision is independent of which team (The Evil Ones or the A's) the Red Sox end up facing in the ALDS. Said Dombrowski, "He'll be scheduled to start, I don't think it'll surprise anybody, the first day of the postseason. I don't mean to usurp anybody's announcements, but I think it's one of those that have been pretty clear." Sale is expected to get a "full-scale" start on Wednesday against the hapless Orioles as the final tune-up to his first post-season start of 2018.
