And it still might be a fair question, as Judge and Stanton really are a once-in-a-lifetime pairing.
Hanley Ramirez launched a two-run homer and finished with three RBIs in his return to the lineup as the host Boston Red Sox spoiled Alex Cobb's debut with the Baltimore Orioles in a 10-3 rout Saturday afternoon.
One year after shoulder ailments sapped him of his power - "I hit basically hit 23 homers one-handed", he noted in spring training - Ramirez appears locked, loaded, and ready to do major damage as the No. 3 hitter on what is rapidly becoming one of baseball's best offenses. Sale was stellar in his latest effort, limiting the tough Yankees lineup to only one run in six strong innings, leading to his first win of the season.
0-4 in their last 4 games against the Red Sox. The right-handed Cobb started 29 games past year and finished the season 12-10 overall with a 3.66 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP. He had a breakthrough season past year, when he batted.293 with 32 homers and 105 RBIs. Hanley Ramirez and J.D. Martinez both homered for the Red Sox.
"He's doing OK, day-to-day", Cora said before the game. "You saw (Martinez's opposite field homer), that was impressive".
" ... When (Ramirez) is locked in, when he's healthy, he's very unsafe".

Andrew Benintendi drove in Mookie Betts with a double off the wall to start the scoring. The issue is that Bundy, as good as he is, doesn't get any run support, as the O's have only scored six total runs in Bundy's three starts this season.
The Red Sox are 11-2 SU and 5-7 ATS. "Once he gets comfortable and settled in, he's a good pitcher", Beckham said. "Playing clean and fast, and pitching". We've got a lot more other worries than Alex Cobb pitching. A good hitter is driving the ball all over the place, right-center, left-center, doesn't matter.
Bettors can also wager on the game's runline with the odds standing at -145 for the Orioles +1.5 runs and +125 for the Red Sox -1.5. He understands that we need him healthy, and we're not going to take any chances.
"He's OK", Cora said.
The Red Sox said X-rays came back negative. "Hopefully, I'm going to try and stay away from him and see where he's at (Saturday)". Betts got hurt in a home plate collision and had to leave the game in the fourth inning. The over has hit in two of those games, compared to seven that've gone under in such games. The good one hits for power, fields his position, plays every day, and refuses to take himself seriously. "He did a good job".
- Cora said lefty Drew Pomeranz, who recently made a rehab start for Double-A Portland, will make his next start with the Red Sox.
