Red Sox manager Alex Cora has yet to lose a playoff series and is starting his second ALCS with a bold choice in going with Sale. The southpaw only lasted one inning in his ALDS start and went 1 2/3 innings in his final regular-season start. Of course, Valdez has struggles of his own in his other 2021 postseason start, allowing four runs on seven hits over 4 1/3 innings.
