It's just like it never went away, isn't it? Regular season MLB baseball is finally back and so are last year's World Series winners the Boston Red Sox. They're in Oakland for a four match series and we'll tell you the best way to get a Red Sox vs Athletics MLB live stream today.
Without wanting to get too ahead of ourselves, the Boston Red Sox may just be suffering a bit of a World Series hangover with their 2019 MLB season getting off to a very slow start. Following a home series defeat against the Seattle Mariners to start the campaign, they were heavily thrashed 7-0 by the A's yesterday. But their 6 feet 6 inch talismanic pitcher Chris Sale is back on the mound for this one, so that could see Boston's fortunes transform.
The A's of Oakland had a surprisingly strong 2018, making it to the American League Wild Card game where they were vanquished by the New York Yankees. There are a lot of hopes resting on third baseman Matt Chapman's shoulders this year, and he delivered with a homer yesterday to match those from teammates Marcus Semien, Stephen Piscotty and designated hitter Khris Davis.
Keep reading to see the best ways to get a Red Sox vs Athletics live stream. As you'll see, it's available via the ESPN+ subscription service (which comes with a 7-day free trial if you haven't tried it before). And we'll also tell you how to catch it even if you're not in the US this weekend.
