Happ pitched well against these Red Sox last season. It was a big component in picking him up down the stretch. Aside from Pearce, Sox don't have great career numbers against him. He's looked bad so far but so too has Eovaldi as a weekly rotational starter. I think this one goes under and both pitchers give decent performances. I'm leaning Yankees on the ML but feel safe money is on the Under tonight in the Bronx.

I've got a lot more confidence in Happ than I do Eovaldi. Yankees are a mess but surprisingly scoring runs. Yankees and Over 9

Both pitchers are struggling this year with the Yankees at least giving some type of of run support. I'll go with the Yanks because of that. They won yesterday against what was supposed to be the Red Sox ace. Most likely a lot of runs in this one.60%

Neither of these teams has been as advertised and Yankees have been decimated with injuries. Not a fan of Happ or Eovaldi, but I do think Eovaldi gets the edge over Happ in this spot. Both guys were hit hard in their last outing so I predict more than 9 runs in this game60%

CBS: Gardner's Grand Slam Caps Comeback, Yankees Sweep Red Sox
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) -- Brett Gardner smiled through the fog left from a gaudy celebration in the New York Yankees clubhouse, part of the new postgame routine that includes the razzle-dazzle of a smoke machine and strobe lights.
"I think the idea was to play it after we win big games," he said.
This was as big as an April game gets.
Gardner hit a grand slam off Ryan Brasier in the seventh inning for his 100th career home run, and the Yankees rallied to beat the Boston Red Sox 5-3 Wednesday night for a two-game sweep of the reeling World Series champions.
Over the Monster: Red Sox 3, Yankees 5: I'm not crying I'm allergic to terrible baseball
Last year was amazing because it seemed like every day the Red Sox were able to find a new way to win a baseball game. It was thrilling. This year is the total opposite, and thrilling in the worst possible way. In 2019, this team is finding a new way to lose a baseball game seemingly every night. Sometimes, the starting pitcher implodes. Sometimes, the lineup just fails to do anything at all. Sometimes, both sides of the ball combine forces to result in an embarrassing blowout. In this one, the Red Sox had a lead almost all night.
Fansided: Red Sox and Chris Sale continue to look lost after Yankee beatdown
We're several weeks into the season and there doesn't seem to be any turnaround in sight for the Red Sox. Night after night, game after game, it just feels like this team has lost its identity. The starting rotation that dominated the baseball world last year can't find the strike zone. The batters that struck fear in every team can't score any runs. And the manager that had all the right moves on the chessboard seems to be playing checkers.
There's no reason to sugarcoat anything anymore. We can try as hard as we want to find the silver linings but they're just too few and far to even locate.
