New York Teams

Interesting answer to whether Giants are watching Hard Knocks since they play Bucs this year. Ben McAdoo: "We have a lot of HBO fans in the building ..."

Joc Pederson's playing time seems most logically in jeopardy following Curtis Granderson's acquisition by the Dodgers, as Pederson was struggling mightily, batting .156/.253/.312 in 28 games since the All-Star break. Pederson wasn't widely owned in ESPN leagues (16.9 percent), but I've often reminded how at-bats are precious in "only" leagues. NL-only owners could consider Brandon Nimmo, who should see a corresponding rise in playing time. Nimmo's year has been disappointing but it makes a lot of sense for the Mets to play him somewhat regularly to see what they've got for 2018.

Red Sox 9, Yankees 6: If the Red Sox wind up defending their AL East title, the Yankees will look back on this as the night it slipped away. Staked to a 6-3 lead in the seventh inning, New York's bullpen imploded. Boston scored four runs in the seventh, taking the lead on Mitch Moreland's two-run pinch single, and two more in the eighth against embattled Aroldis Chapman. And with Chris Sale scheduled to start Saturday night, the Red Sox's lead in the division is five games.

The rematch between Rafael Devers and Aroldis Chapman goes to ... Devers again. Leadoff single on a 100.4 mph first-pitch fastball in the bottom of the eighth inning with the Red Sox leading 7-6.

Aaron Judge has tied the single-season MLB record with his 35th consecutive game with at least one strikeout.

Bases loaded for Aaron Judge (again.)

Here's the paradox with Joe Kelly: Entering tonight, he had thrown 444 fastballs that averaged 99.32 mph, but nevertheless got only 47 swing-and-misses, according to Brooks Baseball. Gary Sanchez's game-tying homer came on a 99-mph heater.

Joe Kelly hit triple digits six times in that seven-pitch at-bat against Aaron Judge, including 100 on the grounder to short that got him out and ended the Yankees' bases-loaded threat. Red Sox lead, 3-2, in the middle of the sixth inning.
