So the Yankees head into Fenway again to face the Red Sox. Coming off a split against the O's, the Yankees have some momentum going into the series, but let's not forget the Yankees are just 2-10 (2-4 in Fenway)against the Sox this year. Yankees rotation is lined up for CC, Hughes, and I believe Burnett. CC is 0-4 with a 7.22 ERA against Boston. AJ is 0-1 with an ERA over 11, and it doesn't get better with Hughes, 0-1 ERA over 27! As bad as that is, it's going to be a little worse with Boston throwing Lackey, Beckett, and Lester. Somehow the Yankees always get there top 3. Yankees need to take this series. The offense needs to carry it. Jeter, Granderson, Cano, and Swisher have been hot. Hope Jeter continues to hit after a couple days off with a bruised leg.
This series could keep the Yankees in contention or firmly plant them as the wild card.
Later this week we hit Spetember 1. That means call ups. Montero will certainly get a look, Neosi will be recalled. Girardi and Cashman have been more hesitant about Betances and Baneulos. We will probably see David Phelps and Adam Warren before Betances, Baneulos, or Brackman. We should also see Dickerson recalled and probably Laird. Girardi didn't rule out Romine either.
