April 3rd MLB Picks: Boston Red Sox @ New York Yankees
Date: Wednesday, March 3rd, 7:05 ET
Location: Yankee Stadium, Bronx, NY
Red Sox vs. Yankees On TV: ESPN2
Boston Red Sox (Clay Buchholz) +107
New York Yankees (Hiroki Kuroda) -112
The Yankees and the Red Sox are used to being two of the top teams in the league, but this season, we really aren’t so sure that these aren’t the two worst teams in the AL East. The Bronx Bombers really looked terrible on Monday night, losing for the first time on Opening Day in 17 years. This lineup really isn’t all that great, and Boston truly looks like the better of these two teams. RHP Hiroki Kuroda was one of the top pitchers for the Yankees last year, going 16-11 with a 3.32 ERA. There is a point that Kuroda is going to fall apart, as he is 38 years old, and we find it unbelievable that he is going to post similar numbers to what he had last year pitching in the Bronx once again. RHP Clay Buchholz was one of the lone bright spots to last season for Boston. The bad news for Buchholz is that he is just 2-5 with a 7.19 ERA against the Yankees in his career. The good news is that this is absolutely the worst version of the Yanks that he has ever faced. New York really shouldn’t be favored in this game, and we are going to keep attacking the Yankees until the oddsmakers adjust the MLB odds on them. New York doesn’t look like anything more than perhaps a 75-win team to us.
