Tonight is the first ALDS game in the series between the Angels and the Red Sox. The challenge is that the Angels dominated the Red Sox during the regular season and had the most wins of any team in the regular season. From a distance, it appears that the Sox will have little chance, and truthfully, I think that they will have a tough time winning the series. That said, the series is winnable.
IMO, the big thing that the Red Sox have to do is produce on offense. Their pitching staff is good, but they need to create run support to protect their pitchers and allow them to pitch deeper into games. We really need to look for David Ortiz, Jacoby Ellsbury, Dustin Pedroia, Kevin Youklis, Mike Lowell and ideally JD Drew to step up on offensive. If they cannot do this, it will be a long and painful series.
