Listen: New York Yankees, Luis Severino, Boston Red Sox discussed on The Stephen A. Smith Show
"You'll seem to the Stephen, a Smith show podcast, Nike stand up, Yankee stand up, Yankee stand up. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. This is how you handle your business. All of this noise all bloviating about the Oakland a.'s and how much of a great second half they had and how much they were going to be so formidable for the New York, Yankee. All of that was squashed last night, wasn't it? It is over the New York. Yankees have played their one game, bogus wildcard play in game for the play offs. It's not a play a game as wildcard game. I get that, but they hit their business because Aaron judge showed up last night with us. Two run Homer in the bottom of the first because Luis Severino showed up last night with four innings of damn near picture. Perfect heading. Luke void had it three, two run, triple and Hicks. Hata RBI double and I get it. But this is the moment that I have been waiting for. This is the moment that I've been waiting for all season long when it comes to the New York Yankees. Because all he is out there, oh years that's been sitting up there bloviating about the Boston Red Sox. They're one hundred and eight victories how awesome it phenomenal and unstoppable day. Look with JT Martinez and Buki beds and Chris sale and David price Benintendi ten to and all of these other guys. I don't give a Dale been waiting for this love. I've been waiting. Let me this is a beautiful, beautiful thing, and I'm gonna tell you something right now, these same Yankees that went nine and ten against the Boston Red Sox during the regular season. That ended up losing the LA east American League east by the way rather, but eight games, one hundred and eight victories Bob Boston hundred by the New York Yankees. This is last time I checked John last time I checked Nuno it's zero zero. Everybody got say record right now. And this is the moment that I have been waiting for. I got questions later. Gentlemen, please don't get me wrong. I'm not about sit up here sticking out my chest, saying it with my chest, acting like a more bold or not nervous about the New York Yankees. I didn't trust Severino last night. I was confident, but worry cautiously optimistic would be the more appropriate terminology to you to lose or the us rather when I was thinking about Severino because we all know he stuck up the joint last year and couldn't get out of the first in it in a wildcard matchup. So we all saw that. I was worried about him. He showed up. I was also worried about because guess what? In the second half of the season, particularly the last two months. He had ERA near six at about fourteen starts where he was getting smacked around and gave up about thirteen home runs Dan, right? I was nervous about Severino, not apologize for that. Dylan pretentious. He came in ready to handle his business. To run is on back to back singles to lead off the fifth. And the Yankees when this second uncomfortable spot of the night, obviously I'm reading from an article inside the new York, Daily News talking about the Yankees, then that fifth inning where several Reno was sort of lose it in a little bit because Aaron Boone elected to keep them in a game. Why? Because he was Britain, no hitter anyone. Just take them out. But once he gave up those couple of hits, it was time to bring chances in and he handed his business and closed the deal. Either way you slice it. Let's face reality. Severino hap-. Tanaka Sobat THEO. Just what laser gentlemen likelihood is that if the Yankees are going to win this AL American League divisional playoff series. Against the Boston Red Sox with the Boston Red Sox having homefield advantage with the games starting off at Fenway park tomorrow night. The ball is going to have to come and save today. It's going to be cast like pretentious and it's going to be a role does Chapman. He didn't close the deal. That's how the Yankees beat the Boston Red Sox. You go beat him with starting rotation. But you gotta hit the ball.."
