ALDS Game Two Preview: New York Yankees @ Boston Red Sox

The New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox will continue the American League Division Series tonight inside historic Fenway Park with the second game of this best-of-five series. In the start tonight the Yankees will send Masahiro Tanaka out to the mound to face off with David Price for the Red Sox. Tanaka is out for Red Sox blood while Price is just merely looking to survive. It should be a fun one, so let’s get to it here in Boston.

Tanaka struggled in each of his last two starts before the end of the season, but tonight the right-hander heads into Fenway Park on extra rest. Tanaka gave up eight runs in eight innings pitched combined in his last two starts to post an ugly 9.00 ERA. Tanaka has been a much better pitcher in the postseason though boasting a career 1.44 ERA in four career playoff starts.

Price was great in the second half of the 2018 season posting a 6-1 record with a 2.25 ERA in 11 starts after the All-Star Break. The one blip on the radar? A start against the Yankees on September 19 inside Yankee Stadium that saw the left-hander allow six runs in 5.1 IP of work. Price also pitched against the Yankees on August 5th inside Fenway Park and allowed two runs in six innings of work in a no-decision. Price has a career 5.03 ERA in the postseason.

The game will be played at 8:15 pm ET inside Fenway Park and can be seen on TBS. You can also follow along with the game on WFAN with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman all postseason long.

Enjoy the game, LOL David Price, and go Yankees!!


  1. My biggest fear of the Yankees came true last night, bases loaded and trying to kill the baseball where a single still produces runs, or as in the 9th American folk hero Voit goes up against Kimbrel , as big as Voit is all he has to do is put a good swing on it instead he winds up and unleashes a mighty swing can't do that fella it is past you by Kimbrel.
    Just meet the ball and Green Monster things will happen.
    Stanton I can't explain it, again a single drives in run and a bat moving forward at least might bloop in or played for an error but to look at three pitches your not Like Voit you are an experienced veteran.
    I expect that if we play up on how bad Price has been against us then we can expect some more Chris Sale results instead of low velocity 96 instead of giving up a bunch of runs Price will pitch great.Cant go on past gotta go on the now.

    1. Luke voit has been our second best producer. He's a 27 year old that was told he's destined for AAA and made what, 100K this year? let's not worry about anything he does. Let's worry about the rest of the deadbeats on this team.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
