Stanton owns Sox: 6 straight vs. BOS with HR

NEW YORK -- Giancarlo Stanton had the steely glare of a man on a mission as he concluded the 2021 season, seeming as though he might single-handedly destroy the Red Sox pitching staff. The Yankees’ slugger has carried that over into the new campaign, helping the club get off to its best start in years.

Aaron Judge optimistic turning down Yankees’ offer will pay off in long haul

Aaron Judge is announced in a different way at home by Paul Olden and he is cheered louder and longer than any of his Yankees teammates. Judge now lockers in the space of prestige long occupied by Brett Gardner. Before a pitch of the 2022 season had been thrown, manager Aaron Boone stated what has become obvious: “He’s probably the biggest leader in that room.”

The Yankees are betting on the laundry

I don’t actually have that many jerseys. Part of it is a function of cost, part of it is a bit of weirdness being a grown adult man wearing a different grown adult man’s clothing. I have a red Mike Trout, a purple Trevor Story, a home pinstripes Gerrit Cole, and a home Aaron Judge. After yesterday, there’s a very real chance that the Judge jersey follows the path of my Story. It becomes not just laundry, but laundry that doesn’t really mean much anymore.

Around the Empire: Yankees news - 4/9/22

MLB.com | Bryan Hoch: In case you missed it, the Yankees and Aaron Judge did not come to an agreement on a contract extension prior to Opening Day. Brian Cashman stated the Yankees offered seven years and $213.5 million guaranteed across the 2023 to 2029 seasons. Judge opted to bet on himself, wagering that he could make more as a free agent this winter.

Yankees’ Gleyber Torres comes off bench with key sacrifice fly

Gleyber Torres went from being the odd man out to providing one of the most important at-bats of the Yankees’ 6-5, 11-inning Opening Day victory over Boston. Torres began the game on the bench, with DJ LeMahieu starting at second base, but his name was called with the bases loaded and one out in the bottom of the 10th to pinch-hit for Kyle Higashioka.

Red Sox 2, Yankees 4: The bats go quiet in the Bronx

One of the things that, at least in my view, has become pretty clear early on is that the bullpen is still a big question mark, and Alex Cora is managing like it. He’s leaving in pitchers a bit longer than you’d expect early in the year after a shortened spring, and it’s leading to damage. But with that being said, it’s not the big issue for the Red Sox through two games, and especially on Saturday. Instead, that’s the offense. Boston’s lineup will certainly put up runs this season, so don’t construe this as a matter of long-term concern, but they’ve struggled this season, and particularly with runners on base. They had a chance to really put a hurting on Luis Severino early, but instead managed for just a two-run homer. It turned out that was all they’d get in the game, and eventually would go down 4-2 for a second straight loss to start out 2022.
