Yea, so the Yankees lost last night. Hey, I never said they were going to sweep. In fact I predicted it would go six games, which means two Yankee losses.
Everyone's talking about the fact that no team has come back from a 3-0 deficit in the series. I'll say this - if there's a team that has the capability to do it, it's this Red Sox team, especially against these Yankees. If this series goes seven games, the Yanks are in deep shit. The lack of depth in their pitching rotation will be ever so evident then.
A note to Boston fans: Why the long faces? I have never seen such a group of negative, frowning fans before. The Red Sox were down by only one run and some guy was holding up a sign that said "We fell for it again." The fans were ridiculing their second basemen. It's an ugly thing, to see a team backed by fans that have no confidence whatsoever. Lighten up, guys! There's still more baseball to be played.
Today's game should be good. A good pitching matchup (though I'll be the first to say that the odds of Mussina having an outing like his first game are slim) and a 5:00 start, which means I won't need a pot of coffee to get through the game and it will be over by the time Farscape
My lone observation about the Cards/Astros series: Beltran sure would look sweet in pinstripes.
Update: I've revised the Red Sox Nation Threat Advisory. See below.
