Great nugget from ESPN Stats & Info this morning: Of pitchers with at least seven career starts against the Yankees, Boston's Chris Sale has the lowest career ERA (1.25). Riffing off of that, of lefties with at least seven starts vs. New York, here are the top three, from baseball-reference.com and including some relief innings, which the previous stat does not: 1. Sale (1.17), 2. Harry Coveleski (1.57), 3. Babe Ruth (2.21). Ruth was 17-5 against the Yankees before he joined them in time for the 1920 season.

The Cubs have an off day in Boston which gives some young players a chance to visit the city. Kris Bryant already has his duck boat tour tickets while Kyle Schwarber is looking forward to Friday as he intends on sitting atop the Green Monster and wants to check out "where Manny used to go" inside the wall in left field. The Cubs and Red Sox have won 2 of the last 4 World Series. Jon Lester, Jon Lackey and Koji Uehara won with Boston while the former two players also won with the Cubs last year.
