Yankees manager Aaron Boone erased most鈥攊f not all鈥攐f the good will he generated
by leading the team to 100 wins in the regular season.Boone received criticism
for sticking with Luis Severino too long in Game 3 on Monday, when Severino
exited in the fourth inning with the bases loaded and the Yankees down 3-0. By
the end of the frame, New York trailed 10-0.Boone didn't learn from his mistake
Tuesday night.CC Sabathia opened the third inning by hitting Benintendi and
allowing a single to Pearce. The veteran left-hander remained in the game
despite looking shaky and surrendering a sacrifice fly to J.D. Martinez. Two
batters later, Ian Kinsler plated Pearce with a double. Then Kinsler scored on
Nunez's single to give the Red Sox a 3-0 lead.Once again, Boone sat idle as his
starting pitcher unraveled. All his best relievers鈥攚ho were fresh since they

never letting them leverage their bullpen. Aaron Boone did a great job of
beating the #Yankees.Boone learned the hard way a manager has to have a quick
hook in the postseason, especially in an elimination game. Any one of Dellin
Betances, Zach Britton or David Robertson would've been a sensible replacement
for Sabathia in the third inning.Yankees managers are evaluated on their
postseason performance, and the ALDS was a baptism by fire for Boone. He won't
be jettisoned this offseason, but his mishandling of the pitching staff will
have him under the microscope in 2019.Balanced Red Sox Offense Will Push Astros
Aces to the LimitThe Astros trio of Justin Verlander, Gerrit Cole and Dallas
Keuchel allowed five earned runs in 17.1 innings in their ALDS sweep of the
Cleveland Indians. Houston likely won't be able to count on that kind of
dominance in the ALCS when it faces off with the best offense in MLB.The Red Sox
ranked first in on-base percentage (.339) and slugging percentage (.453) and,
according to FanGraphs, were also first inweighted on-base average(.340) and
third inweighted runs created plus(110).Even the unsung heroes are delivering
for Boston. Brock Holt hit for the cycle in Game 3, and Kinsler was good as
Holt's replacement in Game 4, going 1-for-4 with the RBI double. No. 9 hitter

Cora could pinch-hit himself right now and it would workWhile good pitching
tends to trump good hitting in October, the Boston lineup is so stacked it could
be the difference in the ALCS.Granted, the Red Sox may need to score a ton of
runs to provide enough of a cushion for a bullpen that remains a trouble spot.
Improving Starting Rotation Easier Said Than Done for Yankees in
OffseasonEspecially after such a disappointing end to the season, one assumes
the Yankees will spare no expense to strengthen their roster in the offseason.
Manny Machado and Bryce Harper headline the upcoming free-agent class, and both
are destined to be targets for New York.All the money in the world can't
guarantee the Yankees strengthen one of their biggest issues, though.Russell
Steinberg Russ_SteinbergOffseason plans: Get Harper and Machado, hope Romine
gets a lot better at pitchingSabathia, J.A. Happ and Lance Lynn will be free
agents. Independent of what those three do, New York will want to add to its
starting rotation. The problem is, free agency won't provide a bounty of elite
starting pitchers.Clayton Kershaw canopt outof his contract but would come with
somebig question marks. He hasn't made 30-plus starts since 2015, and his 3.19
FIP in 2018 was the second-worst of his career, perBaseball Reference. As much
as signing one of the greatest pitchers of a generation can be risky, signing
Kershaw鈥攆or the price it would take to get him out of Los Angeles鈥攚ould be
risky.After Kershaw, you're looking at Keuchel, Patrick Corbin, David
Price鈥攁notheropt-out candidate鈥攁nd Charlie Morton as the best options on the
market.In a vacuum, any one of those four would provide an upgrade for the
Yankees. But you have to factor in how much New York might have to overpay to
land one of the top arms available. Signing Corbin would be nice; signing Corbin
for $25 million to $30 million annually would be less nice.General manager Brian
Cashman will have to get creative to build a rotation that can match the
Yankees' star-studded lineup.What's Next?The Red Sox will meet the defending
World Series champion Houston Astros in the ALCS. Game 1 is scheduled for
Saturday at Fenway Park, with the first pitch set for 8:09 p.m. ET. DETROIT (AP)
— Matthew Boyd pitched well on Jack Morris Day, but he was still worried about
disappointing one of his idols.“I think he might be mad at me for only pitching
six innings,” Boyd joked after the Detroit Tigers beat the Minnesota Twins 4-2
Sunday to win the weekend series.The game started 20 minutes late because of the
ceremony to retire Morris’ No. 47 jersey. Morris and longtime teammate Alan
Trammell were inducted into the Hall of Fame earlier this month.“I think it was
great for all of our players to be able to watch that ceremony, and we’ll have
them out there again in a couple weeks for Tram http://www.piratesfanproshop.com/authentic-bill-mazeroski-jersey ,”
Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said. “There was a lot of franchise history on
that field.”Boyd (7-10) won for the third time in four starts, giving up one run
on two hits and a walk in six innings. He struck out three.Boyd has talked to
Morris several times for pitching advice, even though as a finesse lefty, he’s
not much like the famed righty.“The theme of every conversation we’ve had is
competing,” Boyd said. “Compete on every pitch, don’t get pushed around or
intimidated and give your team a chance to win.“It was special to be able to go
out there and pitch like that on his day,” he said.Shane Greene pitched the
ninth for his 25th save.Kohl Stewart (0-1) took the loss in his major league
debut, allowing three runs on eight hits and a walk in 4 1/3 innings. He started
his career with four scoreless innings, but after he got the first out in the
fifth, the next five batters reached base.“I was really nervous leading up to
the game, but after the first pitch, I thought I settled in,” he said. “I just
needed to make a couple more pitches in the fifth inning and keep us in the
game.”Twins manager Paul Molitor said Stewart should get at least one more
start.“For his first time, I thought he composed himself pretty well,” Molitor
said. “He had a little misfortune, but I think he’s very likely to get another
chance.”The Twins took a 1-0 lead in the second when Mitch Garver tripled over
JaCoby Jones‘ head in center field and scored on Johnny Field’s sacrifice
fly.Grayson Greiner, Victor Reyes and Jeimer Candelario hit three straight
singles with one out in the fifth to tie the score.Jose Iglesias beat out an
infield single on the 10th pitch of his at-bat, loading the bases, and Niko
Goodrum walked to give the Tigers the lead and end Stewart’s debut.“Iglesias is
not a guy who strikes out, so even when you are ahead, he can foul pitches off,”
Molitor said. “It was a good battle Dave Parker
Jersey
, and Kohl kept pounding the sinker in there and got a
ground ball, but not in a place where we could do anything.”Victor Martinez
greeted Taylor Rogers with a sacrifice fly, making it 3-1.Max Kepler led off the
eighth with a homer off Joe Jimenez, pulling the Twins within a run, but Ronny
Rodriguez made it 4-2 with an RBI double in the bottom of the inning.“That was a
huge hit for Ronny,” Gardenhire said. “He hasn’t played in a couple days, and he
only came into this game after an injury, but he got us that big insurance
run.”TRAINER’S ROOMTwins: LHP Adalberto Mejia (wrist) will have an MRI on Monday
in Minnesota to try to determine a recovery plan.Tigers: Jones left the game
after the third inning with a right hamstring strain. He injured himself chasing
down Garver’s triple in the second inning and was undergoing tests after the
game.MORRIS HONOREDMorris became the sixth Tigers player to have his number
retired, with Trammell’s No. 3 scheduled for Aug. 26. Detroit has also retired
manager Sparky Anderson’s No. 11 and a blank jersey for Ty Cobb.Morris, who won
World Series championships for the Tigers (1984) and Twins (1991), finished his
speech by thanking both teams.“It is a great honor to have this day in the city
where I spent most of my career, and in front of two teams I love. Thank you and
go Tigers and Twins,” he said.The Minnesota native will be honored by the Twins
on Saturday, also before a game with the Tigers.UP NEXTTwins: Off on Monday
before starting a two-game series at home against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Jake
Odorizzi (4-7, 4.50) will start Tuesday against Pittsburgh’s Jameson Tallion
(9-8, 3.83).Tigers: Start a three-game home series against the Chicago White
Sox. Artie Lewicki (0-2, 4.76) will pitch for Detroit against Reynaldo Lopez
(4-9, 4.30).
