We dare you not to walk Alex Bregman

Is the Astros third baseman so scary in October he's getting the Barry Bonds treatment from opposing teams? Or is he just that patient at the plate?

Eovaldi, Cora shrug off Bregman Instagram video

A video posted to Alex Bregman's Instagram account, which showed the Astros hitting three straight home runs off Nathan Eovaldi, didn't draw much of a reaction from the Red Sox's ALCS Game 3 starter or manager Alex Cora.

Alex Cora on Chris Sale's health: "He's out of the hospital. He'll be here with us tomorrow. Everything's fine. So we'll see how he feels physically, and then after that we'll decide what we're going to do. We need him to get here first and then see how he feels. It's more than the Red Sox; it's about the individual. So everything I heard, he should be fine and it's a matter of him to show up and we'll talk to him and see how he feels physically and go from there."

Red Sox manager Alex Cora on Alex Bregman's Instagram post, which showed video from earlier this season when the Astros hit back-to-back-to-back homers off Boston's Game 3 starter Nathan Eovaldi. "It's always good that people talk about the game. If that's the reason they're talking about it, so be it.

Price earns first 'team win' as postseason starter

Following a span in which his teams went 0-10 in his 10 career postseason starts, David Price pitched just well enough to keep the Red Sox in Sunday's ALCS Game 2 -- which they won -- and was given an ovation by the Fenway Park crowd.

Alex Cora on Chris Sale, who the Red Sox announced was admitted to the hospital due to a stomach illness: "I know they sent a memo or talked about it; actually I was walking into the batting cage and on the TV I saw the tweet by the organization. And he was feeling bad and he's at the hospital. From what I know, it's nothing serious, but obviously whenever you have to go to the hospital you gotta be, quote/unquote, worried. But he should be fine. Hopefully we get news in the upcoming hours and he'll join us in Houston."

Price: This isn't about me, it's about the team (0:36)
