John Farrell Made Tough Choice With Sox’s Lineup Against Max Scherzer (Video)


Friday night’s Boston Red Sox game against the Detroit Tigers at Fenway features an epic pitching battle between aces Jon Lester and Max Scherzer.

But the matchup also posed a problem for Sox manager John Farrell. Lester is better with catcher David Ross behind the plate, but the Sox’s other catcher, A.J. Pierzynski, has had a lot of success against Scherzer. Farrell ultimately chose what was best for his pitcher and went with Ross.

Check out what Tom Caron and Dennis Eckersley had to say about this pitching matchup in the video above.
