Lineups
Yankees

9. Jackie Bradley Jr. (L) LF: (.259/.343/.534), 0.8 bWAR
Total Lineup bWAR: 16.4

The Red Sox could still conceivably win 92 games this season.  And their lineup out-WARs the Yankees’ lineup tonight.  And their pitcher out-WARs the Yankees’ pitcher.

I guess what I’m trying to say is, the Red Sox will likely win this game.
