Differences in Vidal Nuno last night. Better FB, better slider and, most of all, better location. Held the Red Sox to 0 for 8 w men on base.Not to make too much fun of Jack, because I think he's one of the best Yankee reporters and analysts out there, but this is about as "duh" a statement as you can make. You mean to tell me a pitcher who throws a good fastball, good slider, and locates his pitches is going to have a good game? NO WAY!!! Hot Take City USA, population Jack Curry.

In all seriousness, good for Nuno for turning in a good start last night. His team needed it to calm the talk about how he needs to be taken out of the rotation, and he needed it to get a little boost of confidence. To have a start like he had at home can only help that confidence and hopefully it means more good starts like this for the next. Hopefully it also leads to more groundbreaking analysis like this from the Yankee beat guys.
