Eduardo Nunez is similar to Frazier in a few regards: 1.
How were the Red Sox rewarded for this ransom?
Those invincible Red Sox turned mortal, losing 4 of 5 games. This season, though, he has already taken 22 walks, tying his previous career high and topping his totals in each of the past two seasons.
The Yankees roughed Price up a little over a month ago, plating 6 runs in 5 innings, with 12 runners reaching base. One club- the Boston Red Sox- immediately comes to mind. It seems likely he'll keep playing some Triple-A games for the time being, but when he returns, Lin could go back down so that Holt takes over as the left-handed side of the platoon.
What will the second half hold?
The Yankees took two of three from the Red Sox from June 6 through 8, moving out ahead of the AL East pack by three games with a 34-23 record.
One of the MLB's most historic rivalries hits Fenway Park on Friday, as the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox kick off their weekend series. On the flip side, Chase Headley is 2-for-14 with six strikeouts and Matt Holliday 1-for-6 (with a homer) against Pomeranz. I mean, they're pitching to him like they should be pitching to him. Boston has been outscored by New York 27-7 so far this year, a margin that is unacceptable regardless of circumstance.
Here is where "Trader Dave" Dombrowski may go to work.
This is the 50th anniversary of the 1967 American League champion Boston Red Sox's "Impossible Dream" season.
Via Rotoworld: Montgomery yielded two runs over 4 1/3 innings in his start against the Brewers on Friday.
David Ortiz obviously is missed but others have fallen off the mark. Hit me up on Twitter and let me know. Bogaerts is a key. Sandoval's deal may be a chilling specter in the minds of general managers when they scour the free-agent market, but it won't stop them from handing out $100 million or $200 million contracts. Boston needs his bat.
Yunel Escobar 's availability hinges on whether the Los Angeles Angels want to let it ride on their playoff chances.
Dodgers: They could use back-end rotation help.
Sandoval was sent to Pawtucket on a rehab assignment a disabled list stint with an ear infection.
The Yankees and the Red Sox. There could be one big or close win, maybe two. Dustin Pedroia and his strut bring a lot and Chris Sale has been a plus.
The Boston Red Sox are not a team that will easily give up.
