Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Wednesday that ace Chris Sale will start Game 1 and David Price will start Game 2 of the American League Championship Series against the Houston Astros, which starts Saturday.
Sabathia's criticism mirrors that of three-time Cy Young victor Pedro Martinez, who sounded off on Hernandez's controversial calls on Monday night when three of his decisions at first base were overturned upon replay review. "He was bad behind the plate (Tuesday)".
Asked if Hernandez was the reason the Yankees lost, Sabathia replied, "Not at all". But he shouldn't be around these playoff games". "He's always bad. He's a bad umpire".

Hernandez also missed a call at second base in Game 2.
"Yeah, that's what we do", he said.
But Price did have some success in his two starts against the Astros in the regular season, going 1-0 while allowing five earned runs over 12.1 innings of work.
"Throw the ball over the plate, CC", Porcello said when asked about Sabathia's comments. The case was moved last week from southern OH, where Hernandez's lawyer initially filed it, to NY after U.S. District Court Judge Michael R. Barrett ruled in favor of the league.
