Mookie Betts should win the AL MVP award, especially because of games like he had on Sunday. (Jack McCluskey; The Ringer)

David Price didn’t dominate in Game Two of the ALCS, but he did just enough, if you’re feeling generous, to put the Red Sox in a position to win. (Steve Buckley; The Athletic) ($$)

Price walked four batters on Sunday and that just continued a troubling trend of free passes from the Red Sox. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

Chris Sale appears to be all good after a trip to the hospital on Sunday. (Eric Stephen; SB Nation)

Matt Barnes is really starting to love his curveball. (Jeff Sullivan; FanGraphs)

Jackie Bradley Jr. is best known for what he does with his glove. But sometimes, like on Sunday when he bashed a three-run double, he can punish pitchers with the lumber. (Nick Cafardo; Boston Globe)

The biggest piece of homefield advantage the Red Sox have is that big green wall in left field. What’s it called again? (Jen McCaffrey; The Athletic) ($$)
