Newsday | Erik Boland: It’s safe to say that Giancarlo Stanton’s homestand did not go well. The fans at the game were frustrated and worried. You know who’s not worried? Brian Cashman. The Yankees’ GM understands that it’s been a rough start for the 2017 NL MVP, but has the utmost confidence that he’ll get through it. Ha. Nice try, Cash. We all know that he’s Donecarlo Stantnone. Just admit it!
New York Post | Mike Puma: Meanwhile, in Queens, the Mets! The Amazin’s are having a torrid start to their season. Giancarlo Stanton’s roommate, A.J. Ramos, was asked about the flurry of boos Stanton has been receiving in the Bronx. Ramos says that Stanton expects it. Stanton has also said that he expects it. Both know that the expectations of NY fans are high. I’m sure they talk about it over a game of Mario Kart. At least, I assume they play Mario Kart to relax. Who doesn’t?
MLB.com | Ian Browne: The Yankees are on the road again. They will begin this six-game road trip in the revered hall of doubles. This will be 2003 ALCS Game 7 legend Aaron Boone’s first trip to Boston as the manager. Boone says he’s been treated well in Beantown since his historic dinger. That will probably change. Luis Severino gets the start against the Red Sox tonight. Opposing him will be Chris Sale, who never beat the Yankees in 2017. Keep that going, please.
New York Daily News | Mike Mazzeo: Brian Cashman also gave us some updates on the bruised and battered Bronx Bombers. Aaron Hicks was hopeful that he’d be off the DL for today’s game, but he might need more time. CC Sabathia might only miss one start, which would be good news. Gary Sanchez might be ready for tonight’s game, which would be great. Tyler Wade is feeling better, so maybe. Brandon Drury got tested for his migraine issues yesterday. More on that once we hear about it. Jacoby Ellsbury is Jacoby Ellsbury, so yeah. More after the click.
