Well everyone, I don’t really have anything much to write about today. No, it’s not because of writer’s block, it’s not because I’m lazy, it’s just because I am gonna give you all an awesome wrap up of the Yankees-Red Sox series that took place this weekend… the final of the season series.
Now, the big “Touche” at the top of this post was definitely in need of being said. The Yanks beat down on Brad Penny and the Sox in game one finishing with a score of 20-11. It was very fun to watch. It was as if every time someone came up to bat, the Yankees would get something positive out of it. It was that kind of day.
Now, yesterday’s game… not so much. The Red Sox basically stole the Yankees’ thunder and scored 12 runs against the Yankees’ 1 which came on a solo shot from Nick Swisher. It was funny too because right as Swisher was come to bat I told my dad that I would be really mad if the Yanks got shut out. Then, as if they had microphones inside my house… another story for another day… Swisher hit a bomb to left that invaded the Monster seats. That satisfied me enough to deal with the blow of defeat.
So, the touche was definitely appropriate and you can’t say I’m a sore loser for not giving the Red Sox props for doing what they did. Next up is the premier matchup of the series and what a way to close out the season series than to have the aces of both teams square off to see who takes home the final victory of the season.
CC Sabathia will go for the Yankees and Josh Beckett for the BoSox. It will definitely be a matchup for the ages and if it’s anything like the matchup between Beckett and AJ Burnett, which wasn’t that long ago, we will surely be seeing replays of it for many years to come.
