Are Red Sox trading for Todd Frazier — Baseball Show Podcast

David Price's scoreless outing Sunday night was nearly undone by one well-hit ball by New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge. Jackie Bradley Jr. has a lifetime clutch of -3.09, quite a ways below what Fangrahs describes as "awful".

If you don't believe in bad omens follow up on the Yankees news early Friday and then watch the rerun of their series opening 5-4 loss to the Boston Red Sox, then a huge 4-1 victory in 16 innings today.

As one would expect from the scoreline, it was a day to forget for pitches on both sides.

"By the letter of that rule, that play yesterday was clearly interference", Farrell said.

Frazier's indeed a reliable source of right-handed power, and the White Sox are certainly in sell mode. In the bottom of the eighth inning, Devers made a sweet barehanded play on a slow roller chucking it over to first base for an out. The umpires convened and made Ellsbury safe at first, ruling that Holliday's confusion did not constitute interference. Holliday, who was on first base, took off for second but retreated to first after Red Sox first baseman Mitch Moreland fielded the ball and threw it to second.

"I thought today was a unique set of circumstances - I talked to Craig when we were in Tampa going into the All-Star break that Sunday was a possibility with the additional days of rest and then with multiple days off, talked to him during the game and he was fully prepared, ready to go", said Farrell.

Red Sox manager John Farrell put the game under protest after an odd sequence in the 11th.

A Mariners 4, White Sox 3: Nelson Cruz and Kyle Seager homered as Seattle won at Chicago. Still, a win is a win for the struggling Shane Dawson, who last recorded a victory against Binghamton in April.

A Brewers 3, Phillies 2: Travis Shaw hit his 20th home run of the season, and host Milwaukee edged Philadelphia.

Boston's Drew Pomeranz gave up four runs on six hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in a six-inning no-decision for the Red Sox.

The White Sox have one of the best farm systems in the league with nine players in baseball's Top 100.

This season Chapman is 2-1 with a 3.92 ERA with eight saves and three blown saves in 24 games. With Boston clinging to a slim lead in the AL East, they would be wise to trade for Frazier sooner rather than later.

"In the end, Pablo Sandoval has cost $ 3.3 million per circuit", the headline read, in particular an article published on the website of the "Boston Globe". "Jackie's been making plays like that for a long time".

CC Sabathia (8-3) tossed six scoreless innings to outduel Boston starter Rick Porcello (4-12).

Due to that, Boston isn't desperate for a third baseman at the moment. RHPs Ben Heller and Jonathan Holder were optioned to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

If the Rangers (45-45) hope to make the postseason, they are going to have to do it as a wild-card team. "He was taken out of it by the returning runner, the retreating runner".
