The Boston Red Sox really sent David Price on the mound against the New York Yankees in Game 2 of the ALDS and the end result was exactly what everyone thought the end result would be. The Yankees won 6-2 all thanks to Price giving up 3 runs in only 1 2/3 innings.
Price has a 5.02 ERA in the postseason a career ERA of 4.04 in 30 starts against the Yankees. He’s made 10 postseason starts and his teams are 0-10 in those starts. Since 2016, Price is 2-7 with a 7.71 ERA against New York. I cannot stress enough that the Red Sox had no business letting David Price take the mound against a team that probably kept him up all night.
Gary Sanchez has 7 career hits against David Price and 6 of those hits landed in the bleachers including a bomb off Price in Game 2. It’s so cute watching their at-bats. Love watching a good father/son combo out there having fun. Gary and his little son David having batting practice. Aw.
David Price might be the best pitcher in the Yankees starting rotation. Whenever he starts against them, it’s a guaranteed win for New York. Thank god Boston signed Price to a 7-year $217 MILLION deal in 2016. The Yankees best player is on the Red Sox payroll.
Here’s what Price had to say following his quick Game 2 outing:
“I just want to win. That’s it. My main goal is to win in the playoffs, to win a World Series. Whatever I have to do to help us do that, I’m fine with. … I know I’m more than capable of winning games as a starter in October. That’s what I look forward to doing.’’
And Price is going to do just that. He is helping the Yankees win the World Series and I honestly believes he deserves a ring for his contributions over the years. He’s literally given Gary Sanchez a career. He allowed Aaron Jude hit his 3rd home run in his 3rd consecutive playoff game.
David Price is one of the best players on the Yankees. Thank you for your service.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think David Price is the 26th man on the Yankees roster. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
