It didn't take a strong pair of glasses to see that Severino wasn't fooling Red Sox hitters in the first three innings. He'd given up three runs Nolan Arenado Jersey , andthe amount of hard contact indicated that the 24-year-old was lucky it wasn't worse.Even with the bottom of Boston's order due up in the top of the fourth, Boone was thus taking a chance simply in allowing Severino to return to the mound. After he allowed a leadoff single to Brock Holt鈥攈is first step toward the first cycle in postseason history鈥攖he hook should have come out immediately.Instead, Boone let Severino give up another hit to Christian Vazquez, followed by a walk to Jackie Bradley Jr.Only then did Boone signal for a new pitcher.He screwed that part up, too.In a bases-loaded, no-out situation, Boone's first move should have been for one of the top arms from the most overpowering bullpen in Major League Baseball history. Boone instead opted for Lynn, a career starter who's in New York's October pen as little more than a long man.The move worked about as expected, which is to say not at all. Lynn walked Mookie Betts to force in a run, and then came Benintendi's three-run gut punch.By the time Boone called on Green, Lynn had allowed another hit to put two runners on with only one out. Despite Green's best efforts, three more runs scored, and whatever hope the Yankees had of mounting a comeback was all but gone.Elsa/Getty ImagesBoone did lead the Yankees to 100 wins in his first season at the helm. He also managed about as well as he could have in the AL Wild Card Game against the Oakland Athletics. And apart from the first three innings of Game 1, the Yankees mostly had the upper hand in the opening games of the ALDS. As such, it's in fairness to him to note that ineptitude has not been a feature of his managing.However, there's simply no explaining away Boone's blunders in Game 3.The long leash he put on Severino might have made sense if this was the same Severino who dominated throughout all of 2017 and most of 2018. But everyone is aware Severino struggled (5.57 ERA in 12 starts) in the second half. And while he refused to break, he definitely bent in his four innings in the Wild Card Game.Boone's decision to make Lynn the first man out of the bullpen is equally baffling. If he was going to bring in Lynn, it should have been with clean bases at the start of the inning. Once that ship sailed Charlie Blackmon Jersey , Boone's first move should have been for a pitcher accustomed to dominating in high leverage.The Yankees have a bunch of those, including the only foursome in history to record strikeout rates north of 30 percent:Green, David Robertson, Dellin Betances and Aroldis Chapman.Why was Boone slow to call on his big guns? He told reporters (including Marc Carig of The Athletic) that it had something to do with Betances' limited availability:Marc Carig MarcCarigBoone says he wanted to steal some outs from Severino partly because Betances was available for only one inning.Bring on the skepticism. Betances did pitch two innings in each of the first two games of the ALDS, but there was an off day in between Game 2 and Game 3. All hands should have been on deck Monday.Indeed, a skipper like Boone has no business being a conservative bullpen manager. He's supposed to be the new-age guy who can take the Yankees to heights they couldn't reach under Joe Girardi's more old-school approach. Creative roster manipulation, up to and including aggressive bullpen management, is supposed to set Boone apart.No such creativity was present in Game 3, which is the worst postseason loss in the history of the Yankees. Now they need to win Game 4 on Tuesday to extend their season. Even if they do, they'd then have to win a Game 5 at Fenway Park to move on to the American League Championship Series.In so many words, the Yankees are in trouble. And in this case, it's very much trouble of their own making. Stats courtesy of Baseball Reference, FanGraphsand Baseball Savant. BOSTON — Justin Verlander was asked Friday about former teammate David Price’s inability to win a game as a starter in the postseason.“Great teammate. Really enjoyed my time with David,” Verlander said of when they were together in Detroit. “Him and I still talk all the time, stay in touch. And, yeah, I do find that odd (he’s winless as a starter in postseason).“Honestly, I hope the trend continues for the short term now.”Article continues below ...If it continues Sunday http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-jake-mcgee-jersey , the Astros, 7-2 winners in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series on Saturday night, would take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven heading home for three games.“The trend” is historic.Price, who faces Gerrit Cole in the second game of the ALCS on Sunday night, is 0-9 with a 6.03 ERA in 10 postseason starts. This past week against the New York Yankees, he became the first pitcher in MLB history with at least 10 postseason starts and zero victories. His teams are 0-10 in those 10 games and the ERA is the third worst among pitchers with 10 starts.He got the ultimate vote of confidence when manager Alex Cora, with folks screaming the left-hander should go to the bullpen – where he has had success — tabbed him to start in Game 2.“It’s good. I did expect to make more starts for us in this year’s playoffs,” Price said before Game 1. “But Alex told me before we even got off the field that night.“So for him to tell me before we even took our jerseys off to put on our postseason shirts that we get when we win, that was special.”The Astros, who posted their 59th road win of the season behind Verlander (2-0 in this postseason), now turn to Cole, who hasn’t lost in nine starts (6-0) since Aug. 10. He beat the Cleveland Indians in Game 2 of the ALDS, going seven innings and yielding three hits and one run.Houston got six innings out of Verlander and put the game away on ninth-inning home runs by Josh Reddick and Yuli Gurriel.“This team finds a way in big moments to show up,” said Verlander, whose team is 4-0 in the postseason by a combined score of 28-8.Houston’s George Springer, who had a two-run single in the first inning and has tied Lance Berkman’s club record with a 10-game postseason hitting streak: “This is a clubhouse that believes in every guy. Doesn’t matter who gets the job done. Pass the torch on to the next guy.”Red Sox pitchers walked 10 — a franchise record for a nine-inning postseason game — and hit three in their second loss, both at home, of this postseason. Chris Sale didn’t have his command and was gone after four innings despite allowing just one hit and two runs.An Eduardo Nunez error led to an unearned run and a loss for reliever Joe Kelly.Cora Trevor Story Jersey , who was ejected from Game 1 for arguing a strike 3 call on Andrew Benintendi, reaffirmed Price as his Game 2 starter after the game — with a simple “Yes.”Price, who lost Game 2 to the Yankees, lasting just 1 2/3 innings, is 6-2 with a 2.69 ERA in 14 games (10 starts) lifetime against the Astros, including strong relief work in last year’s LDS.Cole, who went 15-5 with a 2.88 ERA in the regular season, is 2-1 with a 4.32 ERA lifetime in four starts against the Red Sox — 0-1 with a 5.73 in two starts at Fenway Park.Alex Bregman is 3-for-7 (.429) with a home run, backup catcher Brian McCann 11-for-32 (.344) with three homers and Jose Altuve 8-for-25 (.320) against Price. But Reddick is 0-for-11, Jake Marisnick 1-for-12 (.083), Carlos Correa 2-for-10 (.200) and Springer 5-for-24 (.208) with a homer.Mookie Betts, who is just 4-for-20 this postseason, is 5-for-8 (.625) and J.D. Martinez 3-for-10 (.300) with a homer against Cole. But Ian Kinsler is 2-for-25 (.080), Xander Bogaerts and Mitch Moreland are both 1-for-11 (.091), and Jackie Bradley Jr. 2-for-9 (.222) against the right-hander.
