Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees

Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius is making $8.25 million this season

Everybody knows New York is the toughest city to play in, especially if you're wearing the New York Yankees' uniform.

Not that Giancarlo Stanton needed to listen to the powerhouse sports talk station Monday to figure out how the masses felt. Kahnle was pulled after giving up five runs - three earned - while walking three and giving up two hits.

"They're not going to cheer for that, so what do you expect?" There's also rhymes-with-boo booing - former Sox infielder Lou Merloni can expand on this for you - and there's pregame-starting-lineup booing in which star players on the opposing team get a droning, ritualistic beatdown. What's not to like about a Yankee who strikes out five times a game? Those whiffs put him halfway to the career record for 5K games, held by Sammy Sosa. He's collected 20 strikeouts so far this season.

Stanton struck out five times in yesterday's game against the Orioles, the second time he's accomplished the feat this season. Unable to get off the field on his own, he was helped to the clubhouse and the home fans feared the worst. "I'll figure it out".

The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox have now constructed rosters that are diametrically opposed. The Rays have lost eight straight, six to the Red Sox.

He's never faced Tuesday's starter, ace and lanky flamethrower Chris Sale.

Sitting atop the leading Yankees hitters this year is Didi Gregorius with 12 hits, 10 runs and 10 RBI.

Red Sox fans are loving Stanton's struggles, though J.D. Martinez is hitting just.226 with a homer and four RBIs in his eight games. Sunday's loss was the team's highest-rated weekend telecast on YES in six years, averaging 405,000 viewers. With that being said there have been strengths for the Yankees. "It's still early in the season".

"Everybody goes through it", he said. Whereas the strength of the Sox is Cy Young-level left-handed pitching, the Yankees main asset is the most powerful right-handed line-up in recent memory.

Spotify rumored to improve its free music service for mobile users
The companies said they plan to make the offer available to consumers who don't now subscribe to Spotify later this summer. The potential for new subscribers from the deal gives Spotify the chance to match subscriber gains made by Apple Music.

NY is coming out of a four-game set versus the Orioles.

Alex Rodriguez was a seven-time All-Star when he arrived in 2004 in a trade with Texas. The 21-year-old prospect had four hits with Triple-A Scranton on Sunday. Feasting on lesser opponents, the Sox have opened up an early 31/2-game lead over the Yanks in the AL East.

I'm not sure if there was any actual closing of lips and expelling of air going on at Yankee Stadium on Sunday, since that sort of thing has largely gone out of style. So Yankees fans, maybe don't boo your $325 million man just yet - the season is much longer than a week. And that timing is a lot of it. You get more information from your teammates and watch more video.

What Stanton has been getting is nothing more than the ballpark equivalent of an instant message: "We'll be with you all summer, big fella, but you gotta get off the schneid".

"[Wanted] another righty bat in there, and with Robinson he gives us a premium defender out in the outfield as well", Aaron Boone said.

The sizzling Red Sox will be without Xander Bogaerts for 10-14 days as the rival New York Yankees come to Boston to begin the latest installment in the rivalry.

None of that mattered a few months later when he hit the bottom-of-the-11th homer to beat Boston in Game 7 of the AL Championship Series.

"Everything's checking out OK", Boone said.
