MLB Spread Analysis on Boston Red Sox at New York Yankees
How a team finishes the season isn’t necessarily an indicator of how well they might perform in the next. This is especially true of teams that have underachieved on MLB lines, as the chances of them having the exact same group of guys next year is pretty slim. The Boston Red Sox are putting in a strong finish to this regular season, and will look to keep it going when they play the Yankees in the Big Apple on Thursday.
A Closer Insight on the MLB Spread Analysis on Boston Red Sox at New York Yankees & TV Info
Date: Thursday, October 1st, 2015
Venue: Yankee Stadium
The Red Sox (77-80) are putting together a few small victories as the season ends to a close. They have moved off the bottom of the AL East, and have also killed off any chance of the Yankees winning the division by beating them in the first two games of this series. The one other little victory that they would like to chalk up before the season ends is to get back to .500. It would definitely be a small consolation, as this was a team who many believed could actually win a division title. The fans in Boston are beginning to get a little restless, as they now expect their team to be championship caliber every single year. It is going to take some real wheeling and dealing in the offseason to get this team back to that spot. Rich Hill (2-0, 1.17 ERA) has been stellar through the 3 games he has started this season.
It may actually be a bit of a blessing in disguise for the Yankees (86-71) with the division now all but out of reach. They will have the opportunity to rest some of their older guys before heading to the Wild Card game next week. While there is sure to be some disappointment at not being able to keep pace with the Toronto Blue Jays at the top of the AL East, people would do well to remember that this was a team that many had finishing at the bottom of the division. It has been a solid year for the Yankees, but you still have to think that some new, younger blood is going to have to be brought in during the offseason. The Yanks are just 5-5 in their last 10, and would like to finish with a few wins to build some momentum heading into the postseason. CC Sabathia (5-10, 4.82 ERA) will get the start for the Yankees.
