    Obviously these games are infinitely more meaningful for NY than they are for BOS, but NY has held their own against BOS all season long, with the massive exception of the four game sweep in Fenway where they were missing Judge and Happ. The season series right now is 8-7 BOS, hence the title.

    Rodriguez vs. Tanaka, 7 PM.

    I said last night:

    NY has only hit 12 sub-350 foot HRs at home all season, three of those were last night.

    E-Rod usually shuts the Yanks down for five innings and sometimes more. If they can light him up tonight, that would be meaningful.

    I thought that NY would take 2 of 3 in this series with the Severino start as the loss just based on the way he and Price were trending going in. I like Tanaka this time of year anyway so we might as well sweep 'em up and out.

    OAK is winning 17-2 currently so NY needs this one to keep the 3 game lead on them.

    31 pitches for Tanaka in the 1st, Boone should be ultra aggressive with the bullpen today.

    Over 100 pitches combined already, still the bottom of the second.

    That silly McCutchen caught stealing is the difference so far.

    Yankee-Sox games are always slow, this one is glacial

    Eckersley is letting Cora have it. Saying no pitcher stays in that long with that many walks.

    Yes! Time to start the post-season hatred(if you can get past Oakland, of course)

    All 11 runs off Tanaka (still the favorite to start the coin flip game), Green, Betances and Chapman, yikes.

    BOS definitely has a Price problem against NY but NY has an arguably bigger Chapman problem against BOS, Robertson and Britton and Betances all need to be ahead of him in the pecking order if they get to the ALDS.
