Shake shake shake - A number of Red Sox players have taken to celebrating doubles by shaking their hips when they reach second base.
Yes, we all know David Price is not a good starter in the postseason.
While he used all of his pitches effectively and recorded a strikeout on his changeup, cutter and fastballs, Price's real dominant pitch was the changeup and it helped him finish with nine strikeouts across six shutout innings. Can't cut it in Boston.
HOUSTON-To understand the greatness of the 2018 Boston Red Sox, it's probably best to skip past all the things they're good at and start with where they are supposedly vulnerable.
The Red Sox will head back to the fall classic for the first time since 2013. But the playoffs are all about matchups and Price has always matched up well with the Astros.
Bangladesh hopes Saudi-Turkey joint probe will remove Khashoggi ‘speculations’
His family called for an independent, worldwide commission to investigate his disappearance. Late Sunday, King Salman spoke on the telephone with President Erdoğan about Khashoggi.
That narrative requires some unpacking as well. If the Red Sox go on to win the World Series, he might be able to use that ball to contribute to his college fund.
The Game 1 victor this year, he entered 4-1 with a 1.21 ERA when starting potential elimination games with Detroit and Houston.

Leonard's old team, the Spurs, got a firsthand look at this year's trade saga in Butler and Minnesota. I grew up here. "I'm actually at a loss for words right now", Nance said about the extension.
The umpires ruled it a home run for Jeter, tying Game 1.
But in a way, that made this the ideal scenario for Price - one in which there would be few expectations, little pressure and less downtime to stew over his previous postseason failures.
The Dodgers now lead the Brewers by a 3-2 margin heading into Game 6 on Friday.
The Red Sox are going to the World Series. Ultimately, his teammates just didn't do enough behind him to make it happen.

MJ Akbar's Defamation Case Against Journalist Over #MeToo In Court Today
In a brief statement , Akbar said he has made a decision to seek justice in a court of law in his personal capacity. On Sunday, Akbar questioned why the women who had accused him did not report the incidents previously.
Then, as now, the pitcher they turned to was Justin Verlander. But here, given no margin of error by his vanishing offense, he fell short. The Martinez home run in the third inning ruined Verlander's streak of 26 consecutive scoreless innings in elimination games, the longest such streak in postseason history. Verlander would be gone when the seventh started.
