Red Sox Vs. Yankees Atmosphere 'Was Unbelievable,' Rick Porcello Says

When David Ortiz chose to put his bat down at the end of previous year everyone knew the Boston Red Sox lineup would be worse-off for the lack of the lovable designated hitter, however no one knew the impact would be quite this bad.

New York Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader with the Boston Red Sox. His.450 OPS at Fenway is the worst of any venue in the majors.

Just an absurd grab to rob Judge of his 31st home run of the season. Also, the Red Sox are one of the only contenders looking for a third baseman. "They both - I felt at the particular times were very pivotal, turning points in the game". That drop-off, combined with the ill-advised trade of Travis Shaw and the relative power outage from Dustin Pedroia has seen the team HR% drop from 3.3% in 2016 (0.1% above league average) to 2.6% (0.8% below league average). Whether people are cheering or booing. He's played just one game at the hot corner in his career, splitting the majority of his time between shortstop and second.

Each plate appearance by Judge was treated the same way, with a loud chorus of boos. In fact, Price thought it was out of the ballpark as soon as Judge made contact.

Bradley Jr's leaping catch to rob Judge of a homerun kept the Yankees from climbing back in the game. After being called out on a force play at second, the 37-year-old veteran charged back to first base in an effort to break up the potential double play.

Aaron Judge this, Aaron Judge that.

"I know it's kind of amusing to say that [not being surprised] because of those numbers", Rowson said. "I think you try to win every series". "If it goes unaddressed or goes without any kind of further attention brought to it, who's to say you can't instruct runners to do the same going forward?" I'm happy with a lot of the swings I took the last couple of days, but you don't get any results for that.

The addition of Frazier wouldn't be as much of a slam dunk as the return of Robertson, but he could be a quality add if the trade market for first basemen gets too expensive for Brian Cashman's taste. "Fans seem to like watching him play". First base is a different story, as the franchise has had eight different players start at the position for them this season.

Which is why Holliday believes Judge should enjoy it.

CC Sabathia's performance earlier in the day made Sunday's nightcap a gravy game of sorts. It's a hole that they will probably pay a prospect or two for the privilege of filling, be it for Frazier, Moustakas, or someone else.

Judge wasn't sure how he felt about it.

"That's part of it", Judge said. "That's why they come to the game: They're buying a ticket to cheer on their team and boo the opponent".
