You know how Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora was planning to use David Price out of the bullpen during the ALDS after an atrocious Game 2 start? He started two games (one win, one no-decision) against the Astros during the regular season, pitching 12⅓ innings, striking out 17, and allowing five runs.
