Boston Red Sox
It sort of feels like the Red Sox and Yankees have already played close to a full season, first Boston shooting out to a big lead and then the Yankees going on an equally as impressive run to respond.
It’s shaping up to be a heck of a race in the AL East here in early May, unless New York just steamrolls that quick Boston start from memory.
New York certainly looks the tougher team. The starting pitching has been rock-solid; the bullpen has been good, though not as dominant as some may have speculated; and the lineup has been amazing, even without Giancarlo Stanton performing anywhere close to what he’s capable of.
David Price is going to have his work cut out for him. And if Drew Pomeranz doesn’t pitch well on Tuesday night, he may not have a fully stocked bullpen behind him.
New York Yankees
The Yankees should have an easy time working the pitch count against both Pomeranz and Price, which I fully expect them to do, even if they don’t score a bunch of runs (which, by the way, they very easily could).
For some reason, Masahiro Tanaka’s Yankee career hasn’t been viewed as completely dominant, which it kind of has been when you look at the numbers.
In four full seasons, plus 41 innings in 2018, Tanaka has thrown 709 innings for the Yankees with a WHIP of 1.09. That’s an elite number for a starting pitcher.
His ERA hasn’t been as dominant as his WHIP, though, and it isn’t easy to spot why. He didn’t give up many homers until last season when he served up 35. So far this year, he’s gotten that back under control.
He’s allowing fewer hits than ever this season and ought to be considered a Cy Young candidate.
