This past weekend of baseball showcased a number of exciting matchups, close games, high-scoring matchups and exhilarating plays from some of MLB's biggest stars. While Sunday itself was an absolutely bonkers day of baseball -- as Buster Olney and I discussed on the "Baseball Tonight" podcast -- it capped off a larger, potentially landscape-changing weekend for several high-profile teams.

Now, maybe we're just caught up and overreacting in the moment, but it seems like there's something here. Let's break down some of the key events from this past weekend and what it means for the season moving forward.

Boston Red Sox steal nine bases in 9-3 win over New York Yankees

There were three important takeaways from Sunday's game:

1. The Red Sox exposed a possible flaw in the Yankees: their inability to hold runners. Boston set a franchise record with nine stolen bases, becoming just the fourth team since 2000 with that many in a game. Six of those steals came off the combo of Marcus Stroman and Jose Trevino. Was this a one-off? Stroman had allowed just six steals all season coming into the game and the Yankees are actually still better than the MLB average in stolen bases allowed, but let's see if teams start running wild on the Yankees.
