BSJ Daily Briefing 08.12.17

(Andy Marlin/USA TODAY Sports)

Well, that wasn't a fun way to start a series in The Bronx.

The Red Sox led the Yankees 3-0 heading into the bottom of the eighth inning, allowed five runs, then scored just one after loading the bases with no one out against Aroldis Chapman, who couldn't find the strike zone with a road map.

That one is going to sting. We'll have to see if there's any carryover going forward.

Red Sox

Looks like Dustin Pedroia is headed for the disabled list.

McAdam said the rivalry is back heading into the series.

Patriots

Part of the deal here at BSJ is you will get detailed breakdowns of each Patriots game (and upcoming opponents), and we'll do similar things with Celtics and Bruins.

Here's my review of the defense vs. Jaguars.

Here's the offense.

Patriots added one undrafted free agent, and dropped another.
