For the second weekend in a row these rivals are meeting. Last weekend did not work out so well for the Bronx Bombers, who got swept, but they are hoping they can turn things around and get back in the race.
Boston has been playing good ball of late and enters the weekend series just ahead of Baltimore to lead the AL East.
Boston Red Sox
Boston’s strong play of late has catapulted them to the top of the division. Most importantly it has quieted the negativity around the club resulting from the seasons that David Price and Pablo Sandoval are having, or not having.
Boston is fourth in the Majors in scoring and as long as they can keep that up they can survive mediocre pitching.
Their lineup is one of the best top to bottom in the Majors.
David Price is earning a lot of money this season. He is 4-0 and leading the AL in strikeouts but an ERA over 6 is concerning. He is getting hit hard and you have to wonder whether he has lost something or whether he will round into form.
Sox fans are definitely questioning the investment.
The Boston bullpen is leading the Majors in strikeouts but their other stats are more middle of the pack.
The key for this group is closer Craig Kimbrel. He is having a good season but has already learned that the AL, especially the AL East, is more challenging than what he is used to.
New York Yankees
The pressure in New York is always but it gets even more intense when the club is in last place and desperate for answers. The hope was that this club would hit like it did a year ago and cobble together just enough starting pitching to win.
That has not happened and even their rock star bullpen has been getting hit lately.
With so many aging players it is hard to know if they can turn it around. Alex Rodriguez is on the DL and Brett Gardner may not be available this weekend. The outlook is not bright.
Nathan Eovaldi has a golden arm but he is still struggling to turn that into results.
This will be his third full season and he is still getting hit more than a guy with his stuff should.
He is especially getting burned by the long ball which leads to believe he is just serving up his big heater and hoping for the best, to avoid giving up walks.
The Yankees will get Aroldis Chapman in the bullpen next week which will make an already fearsome group that much more so. Their overall numbers, save strikeouts, right now are not all that great.
This group can be better but they are not the problem.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
I am not a big fan of the way the Yankees are constructed but I still think this is a .500 team not a last place one.
It is a bit early to know which of those assessments is correct but this could be a buy low opportunity, especially with David Price on the mound for Boston. It means you have to get comfortable with Eovaldi though.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: New York ML
Given the two teams, the location and the performance levels of the starting pitchers the over could be a good option too. This is definitely one of those spots where parlaying the two could make a lot of sense.
