Yankees return to the Fens

For the first time since 1995, the New York Yankees will not make it to the playoffs. I'm really quite broken up about that. Really I am......


Seriously though, to make the playoffs for 13 consecutive years is quite an accomplishment, for any team but especially in baseball because not as many teams qualify for the playoffs as in the other major sports.

The Yankees do come to Fenway for the final three games of their season this weekend. It's always fun when the Sox and Yankees play, no matter the situation. It's an important series for the Red Sox, as they tune-up for the playoffs.

There is a small chance that the Red Sox could still win the American League East, if Tampa loses its final three games and if the Red Sox can sweep the Yankees. Otherwise the Red Sox will enter the playoffs as the AL Wild Card team and will play against the Los Angeles Angels in the first round.

So far this season, the Red Sox lead the season series, 8-7.

The pitching match ups for this weekend's battle with the Yankees is as follows (as always, updates provided after the conclusion of each game):

Sept. 26th Yankees 19, @ Red Sox 8
WP=Robertson (4-0), LP=Pauley (0-1)

Sept. 27th (postponed, rain)

Sept. 28th Yankees 6, @ Red Sox 2
WP=Mussina (20-9), LP=Matsuzaka (18-3)

Sept. 28th @ Red Sox 4, Yankees 3
WP=Hansack (1-0), LP=Veras (5-3)
