Red Sox v Yankees--The Holy War Continues
05/09/06 | misterrob

Posted on 05/09/2006 4:03:54 PM PDT by misterrob

The saga continues in the Bronx this week. The Sox send out Beckett, Wakefield and Schilling. The Yankees counter with Randy Johnson, Mike Mussina and Shawn Chacon.

The New York Post ran a back cover story questioning why anyone has not dared to throw at David Ortiz.. (maybe because he is 6' 4" and weighs 250 lbs) Sox offseason pickup Josh Beckett returns to Yankee Stadium for the first time since Game 6 of the 2003 World Series.

Series returns to NY after an abbreviated series last week in Boston where Boston fans expressed their true feelings about Johnny Damon.

The way the sports media behaves you would think that there aren't any other teams.

I hate Mark Loretta in the 2-hole. Seriously. If he's going to decide to suck at the plate, just bunt for Christ's sake. Stop GIDP with Youks at 1B!

Loretta is better defensively than Belhorn or Tony G but that's not what they acquired him for. I would put Youk in the 2 hole and drop Loretta to the 8th spot.

So far I see a continuation of a pattern that troubles me. Beckett does not come prepared to play. Too many walks, big pitch counts, no feel for his pitches, etc.

Beckett looked good this inning. Good curve ball on Williams.

Of course it wasn't a strike because Bernie didn't think it was and everyone knows that the Yankees are a better authority on the K zone than the umpires.

I'll take 6 IP and 3 runs from RJ. With his pitch count, I doubt he goes deeper than that. That makes this a winnable game and win-or-lose, I just wanted this to be a winnable game.
