It was a nutty start to the playoffs in the Bronx last night.

See, that’s a bit of double entendre. The game was nutty, yes. But Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez was also struck in the genitalia by a baseball. That’s where my weekly chat with Chad Finn of the Boston Globe began. We then dove into the Red Sox chances against the Astros and recapped Monday’s Celtics preseason debut.

Oh, and I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that you can get more Chad on today’s edition of Season Ticket, the brand new Boston Globe podcast.
