Boston Red Sox vs NY Yankees Prediction

I’m on the Yankees here. I just think Gil is the better option from a starting pitching perspective, and the Yankees have been one of the most potent offenses against right-handed pitching in all of baseball up to this point in the year. Bello has been a decent option for Boston, but he has had a rough last few outings, and the Red Sox at times can be wildly inconsistent behind him. I’ll side with the Yankees to draw first blood in this rivalry set.
