New York Yankees get pummeled by Red Sox, 14-1

Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius is making $8.25 million this season

Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius is making $8.25 million this season

First-year manager Aaron Boone's laissez-faire demeanor through his club's underperforming 5-5 start and Giancarlo Stanton's first homestand punctuated by two five-strikeout games haves fans riddled with angst as the Yankees limp into a three-game set with a red-hot Boston Red Sox team Tuesday night in Fenway.

However, the Yankees now sit at 5-5 after dropping three games of four to the Baltimore Orioles and have not played up to their lofty preseason expectations.

Despite blowing a four-run lead in the eighth inning to the Tampa Bay Rays on Opening Day and playing through the cold early-spring weather, the Red Sox have been boosted up by excellent starting pitching and clutch bats to start the season as the hottest team in baseball. The rival Red Sox have won eight in a row and have the best record in baseball. All three home runs came from now ex-Yankees, in Chase Headley, Todd Frazier, and Matt Holliday. But let's not quibble, Stanton was most definitely booed by Yankees fans - again. The Red Sox were hoping Bogaerts could avoid a similar fate after suffering his injury sliding for an errant throw late in Sunday's thriller. Drew Pomeranz and Steven Wright remain on the sideline.

The Red Sox are tied with the Mets (insert small sample size and/or deprecating joke here) for the best record in baseball at 8-1. Stanton is finding life in the spotlight's glare a little more hard, finishing his first home stand 3-for-28 with 16 strikeouts. Entering this year, Bovada had the White Sox (68 wins), Tigers (68 ¹/₂) and Royals (71 ¹/₂) with the three lowest over-under victory totals, and they represent 57 of 162 games on the schedule of the Indians and Twins. The Red Sox delivered that, manhandling a couple of patsies.

The Orioles' Craig Gentry hits a go-ahead RBI single in the 12th inning Sunday at Yankeee Stadium.

Boston recalled infielder Tzu-Wei Lin from Triple-A Pawtucket to replace Bogaerts. In Severino's two games he has gone for 13.0 innings, two wins, fourteen strikeouts, and an ERA of 1.38.

Severino didn't have his fastball command and his slider was all over the place.

He is scheduled to return to court April 25 to find out whether any more evidence has been turned over to the defence. Over the years police launched two projects into the disappearances of men from the gay village.

Price has struggled with inconsistency and injury in his two-plus seasons with the Red Sox, but all of the talent is still there.

The Red Sox are 1-4 in Sale's last five starts versus the Yankees while the under is 4-1 in his last vie outings against the Bombers. It is the flawless time to start overreacting about the Red Sox and Yankees this season. "You never want to bury a player too early - especially a guy like him", the scout said. The Rays have a strong farm system, but two of the starters they were counting on to help as the season progressed - Jose DeLeon and Brent Honeywell - already have needed Tommy John surgery and are lost for the year.

Porcello is a true five-pitch pitcher, with a low-90s four-seamer, a low-90s sinker, a mid-80s slider, a low-80s change-up, and a mid-70s curve.

The Yankees bullpen has been worse and now touts a 4.89 ERA - good for 13th in the American League (the Red Sox own a 4.24 ERA for 11th in the AL).

The issue: The Celtics were booed as they made the nighttime commute from the parquet to the locker room after dropping a 96-94 decision to the Toronto Raptors on Vince Carter's buzzer-beating 3-pointer.

It's Eduardo Nunez, and that's pretty much it.

We can tell you the computer simulations have the over hitting 63 percent of the time, a surprise to some considering the pitching matchup.
