Boston – If there’s one thing to know about Josh Winckowski, it’s that it’s not easy to impress him.
He doesn’t seem to think much of the Yankees’ attacking after I bombed him for six runs in five rounds as the Yankees won, 6-5, at Fenway Park Thursday night.
“I think (Anthony) Rizzo and (Aaron) Judge are lengthening their squad,” Winkowski told reporters. “I wouldn’t say the guys out there (Thursday) are bad, by any means, but I felt like they were another big league squad, to be honest.”

The Yankees crushed Winkowski with six hits and five walks. Josh Donaldson hit a big right-handed kick in the third inning, which was immediately followed by Aaron Hicks with a solo shot in the next court.
They did it without star defensive player Judge or Ole Baseman Rizzo in the lineup. The judge was dealing with lower body pain. Rizzo missed his third game in a row with a tight lower back.
Reminder: Winckowski was also not a fan of historic Wrigley Field when he played Boston there this season.

“Fenway (Park) has a kind of presence in it. This place is very stock standard, if you ask me,” Winkowski said after a walk, via MassLive.com. “I told my mom (Friday) night. To be honest, I didn’t feel anything. It felt like another football field.”
In a follow-up interview, Winckowski made it a point to make it clear that he didn’t attack Cubs fans with the quote.
Winkowski, 24, is 3-3 with a 4.34 ERA in six games this season.
