Now, they are each at the helm of opposite posts, and the memories of those 2017 postseason crowds in NY are on each of their minds today as they prepare their teams to face off for Game 3 of the ALDS on Monday night.
Boston's relievers have staggered their way through the first two games of the American League Division Series against the Yankees, but the pitcher they acquired will take the ball for Monday's pivotal Game 3. He said it. He wants to win a World Series. "That's kind of what we've been waiting for to some degree, where he can take over a game on offense".
Sanchez finished the night 2-for-5 with four RBIs, in addition to navigating starter Masahiro Tanaka through a strong five innings of three-hit baseball. The former Red Sox infielder was there in the flesh, sitting on the bench in the visitor's dugout, helping guide the Houston Astros through the Bronx and into the World Series.
Yankees: CF Aaron Hicks hopes to be back in the lineup after missing Game 2 because of right hamstring tightness, but Boone said it was unclear if the leg might need another day to deal.
With four more years and $127 million left on Price contract, there is plenty of time to debate whether his acute postseason woes are some sort of character flaw, such as a sheer inability to handle the pressure, or a random fluke of statistics and small sample sizes. Red Sox manager Alex Cora didn't have any faith either in giving him the quick hook.
Sanchez struck out on the next pitch, a 97 miles per hour fastball. The Yankees, he said, "make it tough for me, and knowing that, you have to go out there and execute pitches in big spots". But on Saturday night, the player feeling the crush of those walls, and hearing the vitriol of the crowd, wore the home-white trousers and home-red jersey of the Red Sox. Last October, Willson Contreras hit a 491-foot homer for the Cubs.
David Price has put together a stellar Major League career.

And so now Cora must decide if Price remains a viable option moving forward as either a starter or reliever, especially considering his bad numbers this season in Yankee Stadium.
"I mean, everybody knows that Judge has way more power than me", Sanchez said, speaking through an interpreter. "But he told me he's all in". But a homer is a homer.
Didi Gregorius said: "I don't know what message [it sends], but ... we just go out there and play the game".
The left-hander was the team's best pitcher in the second half, but he imploded in a 6-2 Game 2 loss, allowing a pair of homers before being lifted with two outs in the second. "And I have confidence in myself".
"Obviously, we're all in with this, so you ever know what can happen in Game 3, but it should be Nate 3, Rick 4", Cora said. "It's an honor to me". So he's never technically made two starts with fewer than normal rest in between. Eleven days later, NY won its 22nd World Series title. And using him as a reliever must be a tantalizing possibility for the Red Sox, given their thin bullpen and Price's success in a relief role last fall. Brasier motioned impatiently for Sanchez to get back in the box, and told him so in some impolite terms.
