FOX Sports broadcaster Kenny Albert was on hand for this on Saturday night:

Mo has tallied 57 of his 639 career saves against the Red Sox — his third-most saves against any one team, trailing only the Orioles (76) and Rays (63). But when you carry yourself with great dignity and class and you dominate for as long as Rivera has, people — even rival fans — tend to gain an appreciation.

The Yankees and Red Sox will wrap up a three-game series at Fenway Park on Sunday night.

The Orioles and Dodgers are expected to finally complete involving SS/3B Manny Machado, ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick reports. The Orioles will receive five prospects from the Dodgers. We’ll have more details about the other players involved later.

Machado, 26, is in the final year of his contract, so this is currently a rental for the first-place Dodgers. Machado ended the first half batting .315/.387/.575 with 24 home runs, 65 RBI, 48 runs scored, and eight stolen bases in 413 plate appearances. In Los Angeles, he will handle shortstop, allowing Chris Taylor to move over to second base.
