What he said
Yankees vs Red Sox
Riveria blew another save vs the Red Sox last night (12th blown save vs Boston in his career) when Jason Bay cranked a two-run homer in the ninth to tie things up. The Red Sox went on to win the game in 11 via a Youk HR. Boston has now won 8 in a row and are still only two games back of Toronto.
I’ll be liveblogging the 4pm match-up between the Yanks & Red Sox over at TheScore Liveblogs.
I’d do an in-depth rundown of the rivalry but Callum already did it for me yesterday. Hit his summary up and I’ll see you at 4pm (Jays don’t start until 7pm).
Jays keep on winning
Oh Yeah! This club just keeps on hitting and the pitching continues to step up. To use a sports cliché, this club is firing on all cylinders.
There are some cynical bastards out there saying “so what? They haven’t played anybody yet”.
Over the past couple of seasons the Jays haven’t taken care of the so-called easy games. Last season they went 17 – 19 vs the AL West. In 2007 they were only one game above .500 vs the AL Central & AL West. To compete in the stacked East this season the Jays will have to win these easy games that many pundits look down on. I personally don’t care where the wins come from, as long as the number in the W column keeps on rising.
