Where there was once a Sandman, there now might be a Bogeyman.

At least that’s what teammate Domingo German calls New York Yankees ace Luis Severino: “The Bogeyman.” Batters, said German, take pause just hearing his name. His stuff can haunt you. And you underestimate him at your peril.

“Remember the way it was when Pedro [Martinez] was going to pitch? Everyone would be tense because Pedro was on the mound. Severino can be like that,” said German, who has gone 18-4 with a 4.09 ERA while Severino has been sidelined this season. “He’s so strong. He hates losing and loves to compete. He has all the potential to come back strong and be huge for us heading into the playoffs.”As for Severino, he was amused by the comparison. After all, Martinez was his childhood hero and is now a mentor at times.

Gyorko, Dodgers damage Mets’ chances with 3-2 comeback win

Pete Alonso is slumping at the wrong time for the New York Mets.

And with little margin for error, their two most reliable relievers let a game get away Sunday night that might prove too much to overcome.

Jedd Gyorko came off the bench late and played a big role in rallying the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 3-2 victory that damaged the Mets’ dwindling playoff chances. They dropped four games behind the Chicago Cubs for the second NL wild card with 13 to go. Milwaukee is three games ahead of New York.

Finally finished with a very difficult stretch in their schedule that lasted more than five weeks, the resurgent Mets now visit also-rans Colorado and Cincinnati on their final road trip this week before hosting last-place Miami and NL East-leading Atlanta.

“We’ve got a lot of fight on this team. So I wouldn’t count us out yet,” pitcher Zack Wheeler said.

Golden rings: Vonn engaged to Devils’ Subban

Olympic gold medalists Lindsey Vonn and P.K. Subban are tying the knot.

Former ski champion Vonn announced her engagement to the NHL star on Instagram on Friday. The pair have been dating for at least a year.

Vonn, 34, told Vogue that they don’t yet have a date for the wedding.

“I just want to enjoy the moment and the engagement,” Vonn told Vogue. “We’re not in a big hurry to get married. It kind of depends on his playing schedule, and when we have time to sit down and go through it. I don’t want to stress him out because he has a big season coming.”

Vonn retired from skiing in February, citing persistent pain in both of her knees. She won Olympic gold for the United States in the women’s downhill in 2010 at Vancouver. She also won a bronze in the super-G that year, and another bronze last year at the Pyeongchang Games.

Eagles provide roadmap to analytics-driven future of NFL

Every decision the Philadelphia Eagles make as an organization is informed by analytics, including the most consequential in-game decision in franchise history — the one that led to the Philly Special.

There is a large bronze statue at Lincoln Financial Field commemorating the conversation on the sideline between coach Doug Pederson and quarterback Nick Foles during Super Bowl LII that led to the famous playcall on fourth-and-goal late in the first half.

“You want Philly Philly?” Foles asked.

“Yeah,” Pederson replied after a beat. “Let’s do it.”

Far less celebrated is the conversation moments before between Pederson and Ryan Paganetti, one of two members of the Eagles analytics department who has a direct line of communication to the coach in-game. Paganetti, who has a B.S. in economics from Dartmouth and also serves as the team’s assistant linebackers coach, is responsible for feeding Pederson math-based recommendations when it comes to, among other things, going for it on fourth down.

Foltynewicz sharp again, Braves beat Phillies 7-2

Mike Foltynewicz is almost back to his All-Star form of a year ago.

Foltynewicz threw seven impressive innings, Josh Donaldson and Ronald Acuna Jr. hit homers and the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves beat the Philadelphia Phillies 7-2 on Monday night.

Atlanta won its 90th game, increased its lead over Washington to 9 1/2 games and reduced its magic number to 10 with 17 games remaining.

“It’s a very good number, that’s for sure,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said about matching last season’s win total. “We’ve got a lot of baseball to play, so hopefully we get a lot more.”

The Phillies fell three games behind the Cubs for the second wild-card spot in the NL.

Fourth-quarter collapse dooms Jets in disheartening loss to Bills

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Call them the Same New Jets.

The New York Jets have a new coach, a new general manager and pretty much a new everything, but their collapse Sunday was straight out of 2018, when they blew four fourth-quarter leads. Despite a plus-three turnover margin, they lost a game that was almost impossible to lose, falling to the Buffalo Bills, 17-16, after leading 16-0 in the third quarter. They fell apart in all phases. Couldn’t get a stop on defense. Couldn’t make a kick. Couldn’t throw downfield. It was a brutal way to open the season.

Describe the game in two words: Choke job. They lacked a killer instinct, especially on offense. There was no aggressiveness and no imagination.

Buy on a breakout performance: Le’Veon Bell scored a touchdown, a 2-point conversion and produced 92 total yards from scrimmage in his Jets debut, his first game in 20 months. Bell played the entire game, which is pretty impressive. He showed little rust and was particularly effective in the passing game. He scored on a 9-yard catch and made a terrific grab on a 2-point conversion.
