Boston Red Sox Advance to the American League Championship Series

Listen in on this Morning Joe conversation with Joe Scarborough, Willie Geist, Jonathan Lemire and Mike Barnicle as they discuss the 2021 MLB playoffs after the Boston Red Sox – under the leadership of manager Alex Cora – beat the Tampa Bay Rays to advance to the American League Championship Series. “Alex Cora has them extremely focused. The other night when Chris Sale gave up the grand slam home run, it was 5-2, suddenly, just like that, and Alex Cora at the break in the inning, he walked up and down that bench and said, ‘look at it this way, we are behind 3-0. It’s the first inning. We got a lot to go. We’re going to win this game.’ He’s got them extraordinarily focused, but they are the underdog,” says Barnicle about the Red Sox who will play against the Houston Astros in the American League Championship Series.
