Recapping the Head-to-Head ALDS Matchups from 2016 w/ Predictions!

If you checked the Scoreboard Watching post this morning here on the blog you know that both ALDS matchups begin tonight and can both be seen on TBS as a part of a double-header. What you may or may not know is how the Toronto Blue Jays have fared against the Texas Rangers this season and how well the Boston Red Sox have done against the Cleveland Indians. Don’t worry ladies and gentleman, I got your back.

Toronto Blue Jays vs. Texas Rangers from 2016:

Boston Red Sox vs. Cleveland Indians from 2016:

So with this said, who ya got? Personally I can’t see the Blue Jays getting past the Rangers this time around, even after an emotional win on Tuesday night. Texas just has too much offense, too much pitching and too many veteran players.

Rangers in five.

In the other ALDS matchup I have the Boston Red Sox advancing over the Cleveland Indians. David Ortiz will work his magic and the youth and veteran leadership mix will be too much for Terry Francona’s squad.

Boston in four.
