Boston Marches into Yankeeville

Fresh from the championship Red Sox’s visit to the White House and Ortiz’s controversial selfie with the President (the White House wasn’t happy with the plug for Samsung, a company for which Ortiz is a spokesman), the team comes to the Bronx for four games beginning tonight.

I would have much preferred the series to kick off after a Yankees win against the Orioles last night, but that game ended in an “L,” thanks to the bullpen. So frustrating. Tanaka served up the three-run shot, the Yankees battled back (Beltran finally hit a homer, yay), only to have the O’s break the tie and go on to win – again. Baltimore has a great-hitting lineup even with a couple of their good bats on the DL, and there’s a reason Tyler Kepner in the NYT picked them as the team to beat in the AL East.

But in the meantime, we’ve got the Sox to deal with and they’re brimming with confidence. Let’s hope the boys are up to it with better clutch hitting and relief pitching and less sloppy defensive play.

    Well, we got a win, and there really wasn’t a second of worry…other than what the heck Pineda had on his hand. Boston didn’t have any official complaints about it so I guess we can just leave it behind. The weather may not let them get a game in tonight but Saturday and Sunday are supposed to be very nice so lets hope we can get all the games in and that The Yankees win all of them. GO YANKEES!!!

    My first televised game of the season and it was a pleasure to watch, even if I did have to listen to the Boston announcers. Pineda has been impressive so far. I hope CC keeps to the positive direction in started in last game.

    I really enjoyed that game, pin tar and all! Pineda was great and it was fun anticipating whether there would be an argument over the “foreign substance” or should I call it “dirt” on his palm. We got our hits when we needed them and Phelps got the long save. Plus the game didn’t last the usual four hours.

    it was great even though i was blacked out of the yes network. i hope that pineda can pitch that well without pine tar since their is bound to be more scrutiny now. dean anna sounded like an excited kid on the field with suzyn after the game. what fun. and it’s didn’t go too late so i actually got to hear the end. I was worried since we didn’t have a bullpen and i think tonights game leans heavily in their favor. i got some comments about my yankee shirt at the gym this morning!
