Red Sox and Yankees meet for their final series of 2020
It’s been a long and disappointing season for Red Sox Nation. Granted, things could’ve been much worse for everyone. Just imagine this year being the full 162 games, yikes. Boston is coming off of a series split with the AL East leading Tampa Bay Rays and a series win over the playoff-bound Miami Marlins. Next up is enemy number one, the New York Yankees. In their final clash of the season, the Bronx Bombers are making their way to Fenway Park for a three-game stint.
When the schedules were announced ahead of the shortened season many were up in arms about the heavily titled Boston/New York split, myself included. It just didn’t make sense to me that 70% of the games were to be played in New York. I know there were never going to be fans in the stands during this season but having the final at-bats still mattered. Well, would’ve mattered if the Red Sox were anything close to competitive this year.
So, let’s look ahead to tonight and this weekend as we get our final looks at the Yankees in 2020. A week or two ago I would’ve been more confident going into this weekend for Boston to play a bit of a spoiler, but the Yanks have gotten healthy and dangerously hot. With that said, there are some players for the Red Sox that are looking pretty damn good right now and we should give them their props. There are also a few who are trending in the right direction and could have a great series.
Now that the table is set, let’s look at the three players I think we need to keep an eye on this weekend against the Yankees.
