Astros infielder Alex Bregman isn’t afraid of giving the Red Sox some bulletin-board material for the second time in a four-month span.
Bregman recently appeared on the “Going Deep with Chad and JT” podcast and said he believed the Astros and Red Sox were the frontrunners in the American League in 2019. He went on to say that he wanted to beat the Sox more than any other team this season.
“We battled. They got the better of us. A few of the guys on our team were banged up,” Bregman said. “That’s not an excuse at all. They played really well and played really good baseball. They’re well-coached and have a ton of good players.”
“After watching the Patriots win and with the Red Sox beating us last year, there’s no other city that I would like to beat more this year than Boston,” he said.
