The Toronto Blue Jays are reportedly expected to
#1
trade both third baseman Josh Donaldson and outfielder Curtis Granderson on Friday Mike Trout Jersey , according to Bob Nightengale ofUSA Today.Teams must acquire players by midnight ET on Friday night in order for them to be eligible to play in the postseason.Since the Blue Jays are out of the American League playoff race at 60-73 and both Donaldson and Granderson are set to hit free agency, Toronto's best bet is to offload them to the highest bidders.From 2013-2017, Donaldson was one of the best offensive players in all of Major League Baseball.He is a three-time All-Star, and he won the AL MVP award with the Jays in 2015 after hitting .297 with 41 home runs and 123 RBI.The 32-year-old veteran has struggled with injuries this season, and he is currently on the disabled list with acalf injury.While Donaldson hasn't played since May 28, he is currently on aminor league rehab assignment.In just 36 games this season, Donaldson is hitting .234 with five homers and 16 RBI.Donaldson averaged 33 home runs and 98 RBI per year over the previous five seasons.The 37-year-old Granderson has been a pleasant surprise for the Blue Jays in 2018, spending time at all three outfield positions.Granderson is hitting .243 with 11 home runs and 35 RBI in 103 games this season.The former Detroit Tigers, New York Yankees, New York Mets and Los Angeles Dodgers star is a three-time All-Star who would be a solid fit as a backup outfielder and pinch hitter for a contending team.While he is nearing the end of his career, he still has some popand hit at least 19 home runs in 11 of 12 seasons entering 2018.For his career, Granderson has 330 homers and 900 RBI.Both players are expendable for the Jays, especially Donaldson, due to the presence of top prospect Vladimir Guerrero Jr., who figures to join Toronto on a full-time basis in 2019. The Los Angeles Dodgers have some serious work to do if they are going to get back into the World Series and find a way to win it.After dropping the first two game of the 2018 Fall Classic at Fenway Park in Boston http://www.angelsfanproshop.com/authentic-zack-cozart-jersey , the team returns home to L.A. and will have a chance to take on the Red Sox for the next three games at Dodger Stadium.The Dodgers will have to win at least one of the next two games to force a third and final home game in the series. If they can win two of the games, they will send the series back to Boston for a sixth game. If they win all three, they will return to Fenway with a chance to win the MLB championship.MLB MLBAlex Cora and Dave Roberts are the first pair of minority managers to meet in the #WorldSeries. My4vbEqB6pThat seems like a long shot right now because Boston was the better team in the first two games. The Red Sox have excelled at getting two-out hits with runners on base. The Dodgers have had their opportunities in similar circumstances but have not gotten hits when they needed them most."We've got to find a way to win a baseball game,"manager DaveRobertssaid, per Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com. "I think, coming in here, I thought we played these guys pretty straight-up. Obviously, we come out of here going home down, 2-0, but they made pitches when they needed to. And then when it flipped, they got the hit, and we didn't."

The Red Sox are 9-0 when they put the first run on the board this postseason, and while teams have been able to come back and take the lead, the Red Sox have had the last laugh by coming back again.That was the case Wednesday night as the Red Sox scored first on an RBI single by Ian Kinsler in the second inning, and the Dodgers responded with two runs in the fourth inning to take a 2-1 lead.The Red Sox bounced back with three runs in the bottom of the fifth, and the Dodgers had no answer against David Price and the relievers who followed.Pitcher List PitcherListCody Bellinger goes deep!!!!2-1 Dodgers and we have ourselves a GAME 7! NsBZqZNgjdThe Dodgers were not able to do much against Price in Game 2 or enough against Chris Sale in Game 1. Both of those left-handed pitchers prevented the Dodgers from having big innings. The Los Angeles hitters will face right-hander Rick Porcello in Game 3, and that will give Cody Bellinger and Max Muncy a chance to show off their power.Seven Dodgers hit 21 or more home runs in 2018, led by Muncy, who bashed 35. Porcello won 17 games during the regular season, but he had a 4.28 ERA and gave up 27 home runs.If Porcello has a hard time locating his pitches, that could make him susceptible to the long ball Friday. If he can stay on the edges, he should be able to follow in Price's footsteps.Walker Buehler is scheduled to start Game 3 for the Dodgers http://www.angelsfanproshop.com/authentic-zack-cozart-jersey , and he will have a major challenge keeping the relentless Red Sox attack in check. Buehler is a hard thrower who struck out 151 batters in 137.1 innings while putting together an 8-5 record with a 2.62 ERA.He will have to contend with Mookie Betts (32 home runs, 30 stolen bases) and J.D. Martinez (43 home runs, 130 runs batted in), the Red Sox's two best offensive players, along with Xander Bogaerts, Andrew Benintendi, Rafael Devers and ALCS MVP Jackie Bradley Jr.The Dodgers are minus-160 favorites to win Game 3 and get back in the series, while the Red Sox are plus-135 underdogs, per OddsShark. A Dodgers supporter will have to risk $160 to win $100, while Red Sox backers will need to wager $100 to earn $135. PredictionThe Dodgers are desperate to earn a victory and get respect from their opponents. They should be a more focused team at home and will try to give the Red Sox a solid fight for nine innings.However, the Red Sox are not going to give the Dodgers anything. They won 108 regular-season games, and they beat the New York Yankees and the Houston Astros in the playoffs. The argument can be made that both of those teams are also better than the National League champions.The Dodgers may do a better job of hitting with runners in scoring position than they did in Boston, but we don't see the Red Sox faltering in that area. The Red Sox also play better defense and run the bases extremely well.The Boston bullpen has exceeded expectations, and pitchers like Joe Kelly and Ryan Brasier are throwing the ball with confidence while closer Craig Kimbrel appears to be over his slump.Look for a high-scoring Boston win in Game 3 as the Red Sox take a commanding 3-0 lead in the series.Tickets available for the World Series through StubHub.
