You tell us: Should Alex Cora have started Brock Holt in ALDS Game 4?
Monday night's ALDS Game 3 between the Yankees and Red Sox will forever be known as the Brock Holt Game: Making his first start of the series, Boston's utility man and sunflower-seed-flicker extraordinaire pulled off the first cycle in postseason history.
But the margin for error is razor thin in October, and the only thing that matters is getting a win. So, when Red Sox manager Alex Cora announced his lineup for Game 4 on Tuesday night, there was one very notable omission:
The lineup in Game 4 against Yankess that tries to get the Red Sox to the ALCS: Betts RF, Benintendi LF, Pearce 1B, Martinez DH, Bogaerts SS, Kinsler 2B, Nuñez 3B, Bradley Jr. CF, Vazquez C, Porcello RHP- Ian Browne (@IanMBrowne) October 9, 2018
CC Sabathia will start for New York, and Holt, a lefty, will sit in favor of the right-handed Ian Kinsler. But is it the right move? We'll find out soon enough. Let us know what you think in the poll below:
