Miami Marlins vs. New York Yankees, 4-16-2018 - Prediction & Preview

Adler Marlins and the ex Yankees among them are no match for the Bronx Bombers

Adler Marlins and the ex Yankees among them are no match for the Bronx Bombers

Mattingly, a former American League MVP and a.307 hitter for the Yankees over his 14-year career, said dealing with slumps in NY was tough no matter how intense the crowd or media criticism became.

The short answer is nope, their rhythm didn't suffer.

"You at least let it go three or four weeks before you start passing judgment".

Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton will face his former club on Monday night for the first time since he was traded by the Marlins.

Luis Severino (3-1), who struggled his last time out, returned to form against one of the least unsafe lineups in baseball.

On Tuesday against the Red Sox, Severino surrendered five runs on eight hits against the division rivals in a game that the Yankees would eventually lose by a score of 14-1.

2 bodies, vehicle found after California family's SUV went into river
The body of a 12-year-old boy was found in a California river, 6 miles away from where the rest of his family was found dead. The coroner's office was also able to identify another body that was found on Friday as 38-year-old Soumya Thottapilly.

Jeter reportedly was going to be in NY this week, but said last week that he did not plan on attending either of the Marlins' two games against the Yankees, feeling it would "too awkward" at this time. He's 7-for-20 in his career with three men on.

Smith ran into trouble in the first inning, allowing the first three Yankees hitters to reach base before Sanchez's infield hit - his first single this season - drove in Gardner. "We've tied or had the lead in 10 of the 12 games".

The Yankees scored in each of the first five innings and put up a crooked number in four of the five.

Stanton came to the plate again in the seventh with the Yankees leading 11-0, he struck out and he heard even more boos that time around.

And for a team like the Yankees that hadn't quite lived up to the hype its potent lineup created, Monday was a much-needed reminder of what these guys can actually do.

Masahiro Tanaka will be on the hill on Monday for the Yankees, looking to get to 3-1 on the season.

Maple Leafs narrow gap in Game 3
His play with his new team hit rock bottom in the series opener when the veteran centre struggled in the Bruins' 5-1 rout. The first one put Toronto 2-1 up, 3:49 into the middle frame and came just 43 seconds after the Bruins had pulled even.

Derek Jeter won't have to worry about meeting the media when the Marlins play the Yankees in the Bronx next week. The Yankees added another run when Smith walked Tyler Austin to force in Judge.

He became the fastest player to reach 60 career home runs, doing so in 197 games and breaking Mark McGwire's record of 202 games. During past spring trainings, the Yankees' former captain always was invisible except for a Captain's Camp dinner with prospects as a favor to Gary Denbo, then the organization's director of player development and now the Marlins' director of player development and scouting.

Aaron Hicks ripped a two-run double in the third for a 5-0 lead, and Gregorius popped a two-run homer in the fourth. He allowed five runs in 2 1⁄3 innings and threw 84 pitches en route to those seven painful outs, only 48 for strikes.

This season, he is 0-1 with a 4.73 ERA in three starts. He took a 2-1 loss in Miami on June 15, 2015, when he allowed a solo home run to Derek Dietrich among nine hits in seven innings.

Games like these happen when you're the Marlins, a team that's been infamously stripped of so many of its big names (Stanton being the most notable).

Why wouldn't they be grateful?
