The Astros strike out a lot. Felix Doubront sometimes seems obsessed with the strikeout, even to the detriment of his productivity. This should be a happy marriage for the Red Sox, but perhaps these two factors will react in an unexpected manner.
If not, could Felix Doubront finally go deep into the game without being dragged there? Can our bullpen get another night off? Even if Bailey didn't go yesterday, Tazawa and Uehara could probably use it at this point.
More importantly, though, can the Red Sox make it 17-7, and continue to do what they're supposed to against the Houston Astros before the schedule ramps up again? Only time will tell.
