The Bosox owned the Yankees in the latter part of last season winning 7 of 9. I think that trend will continue again this season. Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz got roughed up by the Brewers in his first start of the season, but note that Milwaukee has been tearing the cover off the ball. Boston won all 3 of his starts last season versus New York and I expect him to rebound with a good effort tonight. Yankees starter Michael Pineda made his first MLB start in nearly 43 months and looked good. The BoSox have the edge in the bullpen and I also think they’re the more consistent team at the plate as well. Take the Boston Red Sox -105.
