It’s hard to think of a worse start to a four-game series in Fenway than the one the Yankees penned last night. Up 4-0, they pulled a struggling Sabathia after three innings and then watched their bullpen implode. When the smoke cleared, they had lost by eight and used their Saturday starter to soak up innings.

If the Yankees are going to turn the page, they obviously need to play better and they need their ace to step up tonight and deliver, something he hasn’t done much since June ended. The pressure is on and a loss tonight would put the Yankees in a precarious spot. The speculation is that Chance Adams, a former top prospect who is trying to regain his from after offseason surgery, is going to start Saturday. Asking a rookie making his MLB debut to dig you out of a 2-0 series hole is a tall order. Let’s see what happens.
