Oftentimes opposing teams don’t really create much ire. They’re just the next team on the schedule. That’s not how Nathan Eovaldi sees it with the Astros. (Khari Thompson; Boston Globe)

The city of Boston has had some great coaches over the years, but nobody is currently pushing the buttons as well as Alex Cora. (Alex Reimer; WEEI/Audacy)

Along with Cora, Chaim Bloom deserves credit for how far this Red Sox team has come. (Chad Jennings; The Athletic)

There will be no shortage of offense in the ALCS. (Justin Leger; NBC Sports Boston)
