Yeah the Yankees beat the Twins yesterday, A.J. Burnett pitched relatively well again, Soriano was back to being Soriano, blah, blah, blah, whatever. It's time to stop living in the past and time to look towards the future, that future beginning tonight, at Fenway Pahhhhhk, when the Yanks and Sawx hook it up again in their first series of the season.
The Yankees come in playing well, being one Soriano meltdown/Joe brainfart away from being 5-1 on the year, while the Sawx come in at the fraudiest of their most fraudulent; 0-6, worst start since the 1940s, can't hit, can't pitch, and can't run the bases. This series won't be a major determining factor for how the rest of each team's season will go, but it can certainly go a long way in keeping Sawx fans and writers crying in their Bahhston Lagahhs and pulling their pink hats over their eyes, and THAT'S why this series is important this weekend. Any time you have an opportunity to kick somebody while they're down, you damn well do it!
A couple of early betting lines for tonight's game:
- Over/Under for Runs Allowed by Lackey: 9.5
- Over/Under for Top Fastball MPH by Hughes: 90
I'm a positive guy (sort of) so I'm taking the over on both. Lay some money down while you can.
