It was so close to being the perfect series for the Red Sox down in Tampa. After taking the first two games of the series they just failed to pick up the third against Charlie Morton. Officially as of writing that game is under protest, but if I understand the rules correctly the result will stand. Whatever happens with that game, the Red Sox mentally need to move on and be ready for this massive series with the Yankees. Take three of these games and they have a shot in the division. Lose three and it is as good as over as far as the division is concerned. 7/25 Rick Porcello vs. Masahiro Tanaka (R) 7:10 pm NESN 7/26 Andrew Cashner vs. James Paxton (R) 7:10 pm NESN 7/27 Eduardo Rodriguez vs. C.C. Sabathia (L) 4:05 pm NESN 7/28 Chris Sale vs. Domingo German (R) 7:00 pm ESPN NOTABLE NUMBERS PITCHERS The last time we saw Rick Porcello and Masahiro Tanaka face off it were in London and it did not go well in for either. Since that outing, both pitchers have struggled, with Tanaka having a 5.40 ERA and Porcello an 8.64 ERA in their starts since. There is every chance this first game could be high scoring. Here are this season road ERAs for the Yankees pitchers. Tanaka: 5.40; Paxton: 4.78; German: 5.66; Sabathia: 6.59. The Red...

These next 14 days will shape the Red Sox season, be it for better or worse. 7/22 Eduardo Rodriguez vs. Jalen Beeks (L) 7:00 pm NESN 7/23 Chris Sale vs. Yonny Chirinos (R) 7:05 pm NESN 7/24 David Price vs. Charlie Morton (R) 12:10 pm NESN NOTABLE NUMBERS PITCHERS All eyes will be firmly on Price after his mini-implosion against the Orioles (4 IP, 6 ER, 2 HR, 4K). In that matchup, he was up against the extremely impressive John Means, and he wilted under the spotlight. Well, that spotlight only gets brighter in this outing as he goes up against the even more impressive Charlie Morton. With an 11-3 record and a 2.61 ERA, Morton is firmly in Cy Young contention. For his part, Morton is also coming into this game off the back of a tough outing. He took his third loss in his last seven starts against the Yankees, allowing five earned runs in 5 2/3 innings. However, the rest of the season has been, for the most part,...
