Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox saved face and won the last two against the Mets (they played a pair of 2-game series’ without a day off in the middle) and so enter this series just 3–4, which quieted the groans in Boston… for now.
The post-Dombrowski era resembles something the 46th President of the United States may find him or herself in, whenever that is.
Boston’s pitching staff is one of the worst in the league and there is nothing anyone can do about it this season.
Zack Godley is going to get a start in this one. He’s got potential to be just about the best pitcher on this staff, in fact.
The guy who is worth the price of admission, which, under normal circumstances with fans in the seats, is a luxury most teams as bad as the Red Sox rarely have, is Rafael Devers.
He got a bad call on the very first pitch he saw this season, proceeded to strike out on three pitches and has started the season in a bit of a slump.
He still has four doubles in his first seven games, though. Boston may not win more than 25 games but he’s an MVP candidate.
New York Yankees
Masahiro Tanaka will make his first start of the season after taking a line drive off the head in a preseason inter-squad scrimmages a few weeks ago.
It’s great news for Tanaka and the Yankees that the 31-year-old, who is entering the last season of that 7-year deal he signed upon coming to the States, won’t miss significant time.
In just over 1000 Major League innings now, Tanaka’s numbers are terrific for a guy who has not always been acknowledged as a top tier starting pitcher.
But at least 20 starts a season with a WHIP just over 1.10, an ERA+ of 113 and 8.5 strikeouts per nine innings to fewer than two walks is elite.
The Red Sox would certainly take him.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction: Yankees big.
Not only is there the huge discrepancy in the starting pitching matchup, it only gets more lopsided in the bullpen.
New York is going to smoke Boston more often than not this season.
