New York Teams

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

If the Yankees were to have scripted their first game of the season at Fenway, they very well might have put together a game in which Luis Severino, Aaron Judge and Greg Bird all starred. Severino threw seven scoreless. Judge hit a two-run homer and made a great catch. Bird had an RBI single. Meanwhile, Dellin Betances and Aroldis Chapman combined to do enough to preserve a 3-1 win over Boston.

Kristaps Porzingis, away from the drama in New York, posts a photo on Instagram from a Lithuanian sauna. He seems pretty relaxed:

Aroldis Chapman, who has not allowed a run in 7 appearances this season (6.1IP, 3H, 2BB, 9K), warms up in the bullpen. Yankees lead the Red Sox 3-0, top of the 9th inning.

The lessons of Pedro Martinez continue to payoff for the Yankees Luis Severino. Severino, who worked with the former Red Sox great this winter in the Dominican, threw seven scoreless innings, allowing six hits, striking out six and walking two. He left with the Yankees up, 3-0, in the eighth.

David Stern had a problem with the Nets resting Jeremy Lin, Brook Lopez and Trevor Booker in the season finale against Chicago, which clinched a playoff berth with a 112-73 win over Brooklyn. The Nets had no reason to risk any injuries to Lin and Lopez, who have dealt with injuries in the past. "I have no idea what was in the mind of the executives of the Brooklyn Nets -- none -- when they rested their starting players," Stern, the former NBA Commissioner, told USA Today. "If you're playing in a game of consequence, that has an impact, which is as good as it gets... And they sit their starters? Really? It's inexcusable in my view... shame on the Brooklyn Nets. They broke the [pact with fans]."

In the third inning at Fenway, Aaron Judge just plowed into the second row of the seats along the right field line, make an outstanding catch. The 6-foot-7, 282 pound Judge was not hurt. As for the seats, they appear to be day-to-day.

The Giants were dreadful running the ball in 2016, with both the backs and the blockers to blame. Look for them to address both issues in this week's draft.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets have waived five players: RB Brandon Burks, WR Darius Jennings, LS Josh Latham, LB Jeff Luc and DL Julien Obioha. This puts the roster at 76, which gives them 14 openings for draft picks and undrafted free agents.

Some late draft buzz on the Jets: Hearing that Ohio State S Malik Hooker is very much in play with the sixth pick, per source. They also like LSU S Jamal Adams, but he may not last to six. The interest in safeties may explain why the Jets have been non-committal on whether they will exercise the fifth-year option for S Calvin Pryor. The deadline is next Wednesday. Hooker is recovering from off-season hip and hernia surgeries, but there doesn't appear to be any concern.

One of the Jets' Day 3 draft picks will be announced from FDNY EMS Station 26 in the Bronx, where the late Yadira Arroyo worked until last month. She was killed on the job when she was run over by a man who stole her ambulance. Her five sons, ranging in ages from 8 to 23, will participate in announcing the pick. MTA police officer Daniel McDade, who stopped the alleged killer, also will be on hand. A nice gesture by the Jets and the NFL.
