Yankees @ Red Sox

The Yankees once again invade Fenway for the weekend, starting tonight. After this weekend, the Sox and Yankees don't meet again until the last week in August.

The Red Sox lead the season series 6-3 and are 13 1/2 games ahead of the Yankees in the standings, which is truly amazing to me.

Here are the pitching matchups for the series, with links added for game summaries upon completion of each game.

June 1: New York 9, @ Red Sox 5
Wang (3-4) v. Wakefield (5-5) [WP=Wang (4-4), LP=Wakefield (5-6)]

Ok, here's what's wrong with the Yankees - their starter, Wang, gave up three runs early but since had settled down and he had a six run lead - yet they took him out after 5 2/3 innings and went to an already over-used bullpen. I don't get it. Fortunately for the Yankees, the Red Sox starter had no command or control over his knuckleball.

June 2: @ Red Sox 11, New York 6
Mussina (2-3) v. Schilling (5-2) [WP=Okajima (1-0), LP=Proctor (0-3)]

June 3: New York 6, @ Red Sox 5
Pettite (3-4) v. Beckett (8-0) [WP=Bruney (2-1), LP=Papelbon (0-1)]

I don't like either team. I'm an Indians fan. But at this point, any loss for Boston is a good.

Sorry, editing is beyond me.

~a: Cleveland is a good team. They should do well this year. Their manager was drafted by the Red Sox and played for them briefly. And you now have Trot Nixon - a fan favorite in Boston for many years.

Don't worry, 'bout the editing. I figured it out.

Pettite vs Beckett. What could be hotter?

Lets talk in September, you guys always blow it by then.

I hope not this year because honestly? If the yanks don't do it, sox should, there is NOTHING like a good Yankee DeadSox game here in CT :-)
