The Red Sox Are Unlikely To Make Any Roster Changes From ALDS To ALCS

While there is still time to change their minds, the Red Sox are unlikely to make any changes to their roster from the one they fielded in the ALDS against The Bronx Embalmers. Said manager Alex Cora on Thursday, "Most likely we'll stay the same but we still have to meet and talk about it and obviously make a decision as a group. I think our roster in the Yankees series matches up well with who we're gonna play here." The one 'wild card' in the roster mix is the health of first-baseman Mitch Moreland. The lefty tweaked a hamstring in ALDS Game Two and has been 'day-to-day' since. If "Mitchy-Two-Bags" can't go for the ALCS, Boston could add a 12th pitcher—like Brian Johnson or Bobby Poyner. Regarding Moreland, Cora added, "Mitch is feeling better. Today, he's gonna hit inside. We've still got time to see where we're at with him. Hopefully he keeps getting better and will be ready to go on Saturday." So, chances are good that the exact same players hit the field against the World Champs as did against The Pinstriped Posers.
