Kevork Djansezian/Getty ImagesBoston Red Sox ace Chris Sale struck out the side in the bottom of the ninth to secure a 5-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Sox's ninth World Series title.Sale threw a nasty slider down and in to Dodgers shortstop Manny Machado for the final strike.BYU鈥檚 Cosmo the Cougar Is the Next Superstar MascotJoshua Johnson Is HS Footballs Quadruple ThreatThe Champions x Queer EyeHappy 26th Birthday to OBJ 馃帀Happy Anniversary to the Cubs Curse-BreakingD-Rose Turned Back the Clock and Put Up 50Will Drake鈥檚 Favorite Teams Reverse the 6 God Curse?Sports Worlds Halloween Costumes Went HardUp Your Halloween Game with Giant Pumpkin RegattaThe Champions: Episode 6 Is ComingDubs Trolled Fergie So Hard It Became a ChallengePurdue Footballs No. 1 Fan Is Inspiring the TeamOne Road to MLB Starts with a Bottle Cap and BroomstickIts Been a Wild Month with Flyers鈥?Mascot Gritty馃専The Champions: Episode 5 馃専CP3-Rondo Blowup Was a Long Time ComingMahomes Is Showtime Off the Field TooCFBs Creative Entrances Put WWE to ShameWorld Pole Climbing Championships Are Something ElseNBA Let Players Know They Have to Cover Branded TattoosRight Arrow IconMany expected Sale to start Game 5 since he had rested his usual four days since his last appearance. Instead Johnny Manziel Jersey , Red Sox manager Alex Cora turned to David Price, who held the Dodgers to one run in seven innings.Entering the playoffs, Boston fans likely would've expected the worst if told Sale would post a 4.11 ERA in 15.1 innings over five appearances. Health reasons prevented Sale from being his usual self outside of his two relief outings.But Cora used him to great effect in pivotal moments, highlighting both Sale's flexibility and the manager's ability to think outside of the box in October. The New York Yankees came into this off-season needing pitching help, and that's exactly what they just acquired via trade with the Seattle Mariners.James Paxton was traded to the Yankees in exchange for their top pitching prospect,聽Justus Sheffield. The Mariners also received two other minor league prospects in addition to Sheffield.The Mariners received聽outfielder Dom Thompson-Williams and right-handed pitcher Erik Swanson. Both players are expected to be projects for the Mariners, but both are expected to be able to eventually make an impact on the team.This dovetails with what I've heard from a number of evaluators. Sheffield's upside , they believe, is mitigated by his ability to consistently throw strikes.Erik Swanson, they believe, is a swingman type. He's 25. And Dom Thompson-Williams, an OF, is seen as an org type.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) November 19, 2018RELATED:聽Yankees Acquire Starting Pitcher James Paxton In Trade With MarinersadvertisingThe Yankees should be ecstatic with the acquisition of Paxton. They got one of the best pitchers in the American League. Last season Rickey Henderson Jersey , he owned a ERA of 3.76 with a WHIP of 1.098 in 28 games.Paxton carried the Mariners pitching staff all season long. He lead the team in fewest earned runs allowed, strikeouts and WHIP. He also led the team in strikeouts per nine innings while also finishing third in the AL in that same category.The pitching rotation for the Yankees will be a lot stronger with Paxton added to it next season. He is expected to slide into the number two spot in the rotation behind,聽Luis Severino at the start of next season.advertising Toronto StarThe Yankees will also have聽Masahiro Tanaka and CC Sabathia to fill out two of the remaining three spots in the rotation. Sabathia will be returning for his 19th season in the MLB. While Tanaka will be returning for his sixth season in the league, since coming over from Japan.Paxton will be under contract for another two seasons, which will mean the Yankees will have a good sample size to go off of if they feel like he is worth keeping around beyond that. The team has also stated that they aren't done looking for pitchers to fill out the rest of their rotation.They are looking to add through free agency or via trade like with Paxton. But with the MLB off-season just underway, it'll be interesting to see how the Yankees fill out the rest of their starting rotation, and the rest of their roster.advertisingWHAT THIS MEANSThe acquisition of Paxton to the Yankees means that they're going to be a very complete team next season. With him in their rotation , the Yankees will now have a very effective one, two punch pair of pitchers at the top of their rotation.Severino will need to build off of what was an inconsistent season moving forward. In order for the Yankees to compete against not only the Boston Red Sox in the AL East division, but with the rest of the league as well.RELATED:聽All-Star Third Baseman Adrian Beltre Announces Retirement
