Here's the adjustment Mookie Betts made to bust his slump

Masahiro Tanaka

NY and Boston haven't made a trade since July 31, 2014, when the Red Sox traded Stephen Drew and cash to the Yankees for Kelly Johnson.

Boston knocked Tanaka out of his start in the London Series in the first inning, and while it didn't do that on Thursday, it started pummeling him from the very beginning. Ahead of another Red Sox-Yankees matchup on Friday, Cashman said they plan to engage with trade discussions with every team in baseball... except Boston.

For Saturday's game, the Yankees will bring out starter CC Sabathia. Things unraveled even more after that for NY. Mike Tauchman served up three hits with two runs in that one.

This obviously isn't a personal vendetta; while the Red Sox remain eight games back in the A.L. East, they still have the vast majority of the roster that won the World Series only eight months ago. Over 123.0 innings and a 12-4 mark so far, Rodriguez has a 4.10 ERA with 126 Ks and 41 BBs.

Eagles Bring In Veteran CB Scandrick
Currently, Avonte Maddox and Sidney Jones will likely start, but Scandrick could quickly find a role in the defense. The 2008 fifth-round pick from Boise State played nine seasons for the Dallas Cowboys .

Red Sox manager Alex Cora came out to argue, unsuccessfully. The left-side infielders have a combined 44 home runs and 161 RBIs after teaming up to go 6-for-11 with three home runs, six RBIs, and six runs scored Thursday. NY is 4-1 in Sabathia's last five starts with four days' rest and 5-2 in his last seven versus the AL East.

Nelson Cruz went 3 for 5 with three home runs in the Twins' 10-3 win over the White Sox.

As for Rodriguez, he has three straight quality starts going, with three earned in 20.1 innings during that time.
