La La La Lola strikes again.
Well, not quite the result you had hoped for if you’re a Yankees fan, if on the other hand you’re part of Red Sox nation you should be satisfied but not excited, it was close. Without that initial blast from Martinez the Bullpen looks extremely shaky which is too bad because I 75% expect the Red Sox to advance and they don’t seem as if they can make it all the way.
The Red Sox will start David Price (L, 16 – 7, 3.58 ERA). Last year he pitched 6.2 scoreless Innings to a No Decision with only 2 Walks allowed. His off speed pitches are Cutters and Changeups.
The Yankees send Masahiro Tanaka (R, 12 – 6, 3.75 ERA) to the mound. Tanaka Won 2 and Lost 1 last year with only 2 Runs and 3 Walks in 20 Innings pitched. He has a Split-Finger and Slider that he uses more than Heat.
