Red Sox vs. Yankees lineup: Time for a Sale Day beatdown

Red Sox vs. Yankees lineup: Time for a Sale Day beatdown

The Sox have owned the Yankees without Chris Sale on the mound, so today should, uh, be easier? The first-place, awesome Red Sox (70-51) look to beat the dumb Yankees (65-56) yet again when they take the field tonight at Fenway Park (7:10 p.m., NESN, MLB Network out-of-market). It’ll be Chris Sale (2.51 ERA), the best, against CC Sabathia (4.05 ERA), a former Cy Young Award winner and generally good guy coming off the disabled list whom the Sox ought to nonetheless pound. And oh yeah, Sale. Who rules. Little else to report. Here are the full lineups:

Yankee Blog Bemoans Empire Not Dealing For Sale

Yankee Blog Bemoans Empire Not Dealing For Sale

Seth Pizzurro, of the Yankee blog Pinstripe Alley, has penned a fascinating article suggesting that New York made a huge blunder not trading for Chris Sale. He argues that when you see a relatively young, 'Top Five' pitcher on the market with controllable costs, you trade for him. He examines the package of prospects Boston sent to Chicago for Sale, and contemplates their projectable futures. Basically, even if Yoan Moncada, et. al. became Robinson Cano-like stars, the deal would still probably (on balance) be good for the Red Sox. He sums it up as follows: "For now, we have to somehow live...

Red Sox 3, Yankees 4: Red Sox shut down by CC Sabathia...again

Red Sox 3, Yankees 4: Red Sox shut down by CC Sabathia...again

CC Sabathia owns the Red Sox this year for some reason. It was not the happiest of Chris Sale days in Boston on Saturday, as the Red Sox ace was a little bit off compared to where we’re used to seeing him. The Yankees, who Sale has dominated so many times this year, were able to manage some hard contact off the lefty in this game and that was enough to propel them to a victory. While Sale’s performance was noteworthy because of the hard contact, he was still able to go deep into the game and put the Red Sox in a position where they still could have won. Unfortunately, Boston has no...

No 'Sale'-A-Bration At Fenway, Sox Fall To Empire, 4-3

No 'Sale'-A-Bration At Fenway, Sox Fall To Empire, 4-3

(AP Photo)Chris Sale is not one for excuses. He left two fat pitches over the plate last night—and they turned into four runs in the 4-3 loss to The Bronx Embalmers. The lefty went seven innings, giving up seven hits and striking out nine, resulting in his fifth loss of 2017. The game wasted another amazing performance by rookie Rafael Devers—who slammed his 8th HR in the loss. The kid's 2-4 night pushed his average to .364. He is now—along with Babe Ruth—one of only two Red Sox players to homer against The Evil Ones in three straight games before the age of 21. Pretty impressive.

Red Sox 5, Yankees 1: Rick Porcello shines against New York

Red Sox 5, Yankees 1: Rick Porcello shines against New York

Rick Porcello and the bullpen shut down the Yankees. With it looking more and more like David Price might not be able to return in 2017, the Red Sox really need one (or preferably both) of Rick Porcello and Eduardo Rodriguez to step up behind Chris Sale and Drew Pomeranz. Porcello has been looking like a pitcher who’s ready to turn things around of late, and he kept that going on Sunday. There were times where his command didn’t look perfectly sharp, but he made the most of it and the Yankees couldn’t really do much of anything against him in this game. The Red Sox needed a good start...
