Skidding Yanks star Stanton gets whiff of fan frustration

Didi Gregorius will not start Sunday as Ronald Torreyes takes his place at shortstop

"Just got to look at it as a bad week", Stanton said after Sunday's loss to the Baltimore Orioles, a game he ended in the 12th inning with his fifth whiff of the game.

The 33-year-old Robinson, who has appeared in 141 games in left, 111 games in center and 94 games in right in his eight-year career in the big leagues, started in center and batted ninth Tuesday.

Stanton was given the ol' Bronx Cheer several times at Yankee Stadium on Sunday. He launched two long homers and doubled at Toronto, and the smashing start left Yankees fans giddy, wondering how many homers might Stanton and teammate Aaron Judge combine to hit.

Fellow future Hall of Famer Dave Winfield hit only one home run in his first 26 games after moving from San Diego to the Yankees in 1981. Aaron Judge can strike out six times, but if Stanton strikes out even once, he'll hear it.

The Red Sox opened as -135 favorites (wager $135 to win $100); the total is at seven runs, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.

Through the first two weeks of the young MLB season, Boston's pitching staff has emerged as one of the best in the majors. There was Adam Warren allowing a walk and two singles in the 12th, the last one by Craig Gentry driving in the eventual winning run. NY is 3-4 ATS over its last seven games and the over has cashed in six of those seven. While he has three home runs, he also became the first player in the live-ball era with a pair of hitless, five-strikeout games in the same season.

"I want to be on that level", he said in March.

But Boone rejected the idea that the crowd was getting into Stanton's head.

Two things Manchester United gained from Manchester Derby win
There wasn't a better time to play City - in the middle of two draining and all-encompassing Champions League games. The Argentine was denied a potentially brilliant equalizer by an excellent save from David de Gea in the 89 minute.

"He had a number of tests", Boone said. "That's just something you have to deal with as a big leaguer". And, in case you need a reminder, he hit.267/.313/.379 (88 OPS+) with the Yankees, and.289/.322/.435 (103 OPS+) with everyone else. No team had previously lost four players who had reached at least 650 plate appearances as the Marlins did with Dee Gordon, Marcell Ozuna, Giancarlo Stanton and Christian Yelich.

"Things aren't going well", he said.

"Hitting's hard, man. It's a struggle when you're facing elite competition that are trained to make you look bad, are trained to get you". "A couple of good games and I could turn it around and help us win". Boone said some of the results the Yankees have received were good.

"When the Houston Rockets drafted 6'11" center and future Hall of Famer Hakeem Olajuwon in 1984 to go with 7'4" power forward Ralph Sampson, they created the Twin Towers. "So what do you expect?"

Plus, Stanton started off his NL MVP campaign in 2017 slashing.226/.300/.415 over his first 14 games.

Porcello started his Boston career by going 3-2 against the Yankees in his first two years with the Sox.

"I really feel that he's prepared himself for this", Boone said. And I think he's such a diligent worker and his prep is so detailed that I think he'll get locked in. There's also rhymes-with-boo booing - former Sox infielder Lou Merloni can expand on this for you - and there's pregame-starting-lineup booing in which star players on the opposing team get a droning, ritualistic beatdown.
