The Blue Jays have some of the coldest bats in baseball, averaging just 2.64 runs per game through their opening 11 games of 2019.
After dealing some of their best veterans, the Blue Jays have begun their rebuild in earnest, waiting on prized prospect 3B Vladimir Guerrero, Jr. to make his debut in the coming weeks.
The Blue Jays currently have 250-1 odds to win the American League and 500-1 to take the World Series.
The Red Sox began their season with a staggeringly awful 11-game road trip. The 2018 World Series Champs finished the trip with a 3-8 record.
After having one of the best offenses in baseball last season, the Red Sox hitters have gotten off to a slow start with averaging 4.18 runs per game, far below the league average of 4.51.
The Red Sox currently have 4-1 odds to win the American League and 8-1 to win the World Series for the 2019 season.
Shoemaker has been dynamic to open 2019. In 14 innings pitched, the 32-year old starter has only given up four hits, three walks, and no earned runs.
Perhaps Shoemaker has taken advantage of an easier schedule after pitching to Detroit and Baltimore, but it is hard to deny that his first two games have been nothing short of spectacular.
With a reduced velocity in the first two games, there are whispers that Chris Sale has a shoulder injury.
His last start, against Oakland, saw the left-hander only strikeout one batter in six innings, tying a career low. Sale relied on secondary pitches throughout the game, causing further concern that his shoulder may be damaged.
Toronto is 3-8 to open the season and that is primarily a result of a struggling offense that has only scored 29 runs this season.
With the trades of DH Kendrys Morales and OF Kevin Pillar, the lineup only has 1B Justin Smoak as an anchor to generate runs.
After a long and unsuccessful road trip to start the season, the Red Sox are happy to be back at Fenway Park where they went 57-24 last year.
In eleven 2019 games, the Red Sox share the worst record in the American League with Toronto at 3-8.
After finishing 25-14 in 2018 in one-run games, Boston has started 2-3 this season.
