The rich get richer

Metro USA (Boston) - - SPORTS -

If the Red Sox do some­how man­age to get to the 2017 World Se­ries, the Na­tional League team wait­ing for them will likely be the jug­ger­naut Los An­ge­les Dodgers. The Dodgers, who al­ready own the best record in MLB at 74-31, ac­quired righty Yu Darvish from the Rangers on dead­line day. Darvish (6-9, 4.01 ERA), a four-time All-Star, gives the Dodgers in­sur­ance if Clay­ton Ker­shaw can’t re­turn to full strength from his in­jured back. The Hous­ton Astros, who the Red Sox could very well meet in the play­offs, landed lefty starter Fran­cisco Liri­ano from the Blue Jays on Mon­day. Liri­ano is 6-5 with a 5.88 ERA this sea­son.
