Andruw Jones crusbed the sox this weekend and a great catch in lf and a dp..


Something tells me we won’t need to worry about Fenway during the playoffs – Boston aren’t making them any time soon. I would be more worried about Corey Wade, the guy has been smashed around the past three outings and well, giving up 3 earned in less than an inning broke the back last night – Hughes may have taken the loss, but Logan & Wade dropping 4 earned did not help.


This isn’t the same Red Sox team the Yanks have gotten into knif fights with in the past. They are a shell of their former selves. I wouldn’t be surprised if they finished dead last in this division so I’m not worried about them. I am still worried about the starting rotation, it’s still inconsistent at best. This team is going to have to remain health for the rest of the season in order to make the playoffs, so far they haven’t suffered any significant injuries this season that have really hurt them.


Well once again Phil Hughes with his Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde imitation. BTW Girardi, if you read this blog, do NOT I repeat do NOT start Hughes in the playoffs at Fenway. He positively STINKS there!!!!


When is Cashman going to wake up and pick up the starting pitching that the Yankees need instead of picking up players like Darnell McDonald who is batting only .205 and the Red Sox dont even want him! Phillies are going to be looking to deal some starters.
