SOX: Alex Cora ASTROS: A.J. Hinch The run­down: It would be too easy to dis­miss this as a tie. Hinch is Miyagi, Cora is Daniel

... Right? Not quite. Cora has proven he likes to take cal­cu­lated risks this sea­son, and he has done even more of it in the play­offs. He cer­tainly learned a lot from Hinch as his bench coach through the Astros' run to a cham­pi­onship a year ago, but he's also honed his own skills while in Bos­ton. Hinch has been blessed with plenty of play­ers as dif­fer­ent op­tions in key sit­u­a­tions, while Cora has been forced to play hunches and jug­gle things sit­u­a­tion­ally more of­ten.
