Game 10: Boston Red Sox at New York Yankees - Buchholz vs Pineda

Sometimes, I forget how tall Jeter is. - Al Bello

Welcoming the defending champs to Yankee Stadium

These Red Sox don't look like last year's squad. Their center fielder is in the Bronx, their catcher is in Miami, and their shortstop is sitting at home because nobody wants him.

It's a new year, and the Red Sox are in last place in the American League East.

Of course, they're tied for last place with the Yankees. So it's up Michael Pineda to pick the Yankees up by pushing the Red Sox down. He was electric in his first start of the season, giving up only one run in six innings while striking out five. Baseball is an unfair game, so Pineda took the hard luck loss, but that doesn't dim my excitement.

Brian McCann's -7 OPS+ does dim my excitement, so I'm ready for him to have a breakout game.
