Red Sox announcer to Yankees’ Masahiro Tanaka: Lose translator, learn ‘baseball language’

The veteran lefty did it again on Wednesday night, following up another shaky Masahiro Tanaka start with eight shutout innings at Yankee Stadium. Schmidt, a three-time NL MVP and member of the Baseball Hall of Fame, subsequently issued an apology, saying, “It’s been made known to me that my answer on a radio interview … was disrespectful to Herrera and Latin players in general”. Price was hobbled by an elbow injury, but he impressed in his last start, surrendering just one earned run on three hits in seven innings of work to get the win in last weekend’s 5-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles as -120 chalk.Boston Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy apologized on Wednesday for his on-air remarks that pitchers such as New York Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka shouldn’t be allowed translators on the mound.The Yankees would score one run in the seventh and add two in the eighth to go on to win 8-0.The 41-year-old had one of the best years of his career during his final season in 2016, posting a slash line of.315/.401/.620 with 38 home runs and a league-leading 127 RBI.”It’s baseball. It is what it is”, Sabathia said after his last home start May 27 against the Oakland A’s.Remy apologized on Twitter a day after he said during the NESN telecast of the game between Boston and NY that pitchers such as the Japanese-born Tanaka should “learn baseball language”.The Red Sox came into this series in NY looking to make a statement. In his last three starts, Porcello has allowed 30 hits but he has cut out the damage, allowing nine earned runs. RHP Michael Pineda (6-3) pitches for the Yankees. Carter got a hold of a fastball down the middle and hit a 3-run homer to put the Yankees up top, 5-0.The Red Sox-Yankees rivalry has had its share of memorable moments, but Jerry Remy might prefer that his comments Tuesday be quickly forgotten. Sabathia (6-2, 4.12 ERA) has captured his last four starts, throwing to a 1.48 ERA with 26 strikeouts over a stretch of 24 1/3 innings.The Red Sox will seek their fourth straight win after holding on for a 5-4 victory in the series opener on Tuesday.Carter almost had a second homer but right fielder Mookie Betts made a leaping catch at the wall after the ball went through the arms of a fan in the first row.Remy went on to say, “I’m probably in the minority in that – my feeling [about translators visiting the mound]”.Sabathia insisted he doesn’t think about that when he’s on the mound, but manager Joe Girardi said he appreciates how important it is.”The competitive spirit inside of C.C.”, Girardi said.The loss is Porcello’s third straight and drops him to 3-8 on the season.”That was really weird, it was scary, ” Sabathia said. There’s reason to believe that number will improve at some point, as no other Red Sox starter is getting less than 5.00.If Red Sox assistant pitching coach Brian Bannister is right, then Kelly’s pushing the limits of the human arm.
