Red Sox Looking At Bruce Chen For One Game Playoff.
The Red Sox are reportedly looking for a potential starter in case they cannot secure a Playoff birth tonight. If The Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays both win or lose tonight they will meet tomorrow in Tampa for a 1 Game Playoff. Bruce Chen could be the starter for that game.
Chen, who has pitched with the Royals this season, has actually had a decent season. He's gone 12-8 with a 3.98 ERA but has not faced The Tampa Bay Rays. This could go two ways, he can pitch well against hitters who haven't seen him his season, or he can get rocked because he hasn't seen them either.
If The Red Sox season comes down to Bruce Chen... the "Fen-Way Too Faithful" might even take a step toward the edge.
