Red Sox vs Yankees 2007--Seasonal Thread
04/20/07 | Misterrob

Posted on 04/20/2007 8:07:32 AM PDT by misterrob

The Sox and Yankees are resuming their long standing rivalry with and a mix of old and new faces. The Sox have upgraded their team with additions of JD Drew, Julio Lugo and Dice-K. The Yankees return with changes to the starting rotation and the subtraction of Gary Sheffield. Both teams figure to compete deep into the season.

For two states without much to brag about with respect to their elected officials,

Chucky and Hidabeast vs the Flip Flopping Gigalo and the Swimmer

or

The Spitter vs Coupe Deval

Here's to another season of Yankees vs Red Sox on FR!

The 2007 season is upon us and we are treated to six Red Sox vs Yankees games in the month of April.

Sox open with Curt Schilling coming off of back to back impressive wins and the Yankees counter with Amy Petite.

Red Sox-Yankees Ping.

I would offer this as a season thread. Let’s hope the Sox don’t fall apart in mid-August and we have a repeat of last year.

Yankee fans welcome....

The Yankees return with changes to the starting rotation

Yeah, I'd say so. Four of their starting five are on the disabled list -- Mussina, Wang, Pavano, and Karstens. Until they get back into the rotation the Yanks are going to have to score 7+ runs a game to have any chance of winning. .....but A-Rod is coming through bigtime for them.

Boy if it weren't for the Indians horrible bullpen, the Sox could have been leading the Yanks by 2 games going into tonight. Tribe led 6-2 going into the 9th but Yanks got 6 runs including a walk-off A-Fraud homer. Who's putting the steroids on his Wheaties? I was following the action of that game here via MLB.com Gameday

Fri, Apr 20 7:05 pm EDT C. Schilling vs. A. Pettitte

Sat, Apr 21 3:55 pm EDT J. Beckett vs. J. Karstens

Sun, Apr 22 8:05 pm EDT D. Matsuzaka vs. C. Wright

The Indians actually signed Foulke as a way of upgrading their pen.

That’s sad.

OMG, this is what happens when I have not had enough caffeine. That ping was supposed to be for my husband.

I am still so embarrassed. I am hiding under my desk now LOL.

You guys are just playing for the right to be beaten by the Tigers in late October.

I'm sure you meant to say that they are playing for the right to meet the Mets in October, because any meetings the Tigers may have with other teams in October will be nowhere but on the golf course!! ;-)

Game On!

Sox got the hot pitching (Shilling, Beckett, Dice-K and Pap).

The MFY have the hot bats (Jeter’s GF has TEN (10!) HRs)

But we all know, good pitching will beat good hitting every time.

Tonight we have Shilling vs Pettitte in HD
Saturday Beckette vs. Karsten (who? Columbus standout?) in HD
Sunday Matsuzaka vs Wright in HD

And I gots the HDs (Sony XBR2 40” LCD)

No worries. They'll be tacking on 2007 in six months or so (provided a starting pitcher manages to stay off of the DL for more than a week...)

6 since the age of free agency. Heck, 6 in over 45 years. I will give them the 4 in 5 years but the run they made in the 1920s through thr early 60’s was a simply a different era and set of circumstances.

The Yankees simply do not have the pitching to win a world series. If they have learned nothing else in the past several years it is that pitching makes the difference.

Schilling looked very good on Saturday afternoon and 5 days rest can't hurt.

It was so cold in the right field roof seats last Saturday that two of those chemical hand-warmers did not even keep me warm and they ran out of hot beverages. For the Fenway fans sake, I hope the weather is much better this weekend.

I will be plenty warm watching NESN in Virginia this weekend and I will not be enjoying any hot beverages.

What is the latest on Pavano... the Sox and Yankees were falling over each in a bidding war for his sorry services.

Pavano's main service to the Yankees is providing a warm welcome to anyone placed on the DL. It'll be a good season, but this team probably can't win it all. The offense and the pen are as strong as one could hope for, but the starters are going to be a problem.

Arm tightness problems....

He hit the lottery with this team. (Of course Matt Clemment made out okay here) Pavano should go back to the NL and get another contract before retiring with having made over $60 million playing baseball.

The salary structure is sheer insanity. Imagine...60 million for a career that had one good year.

Hey, we were at Fenway last Saturday also... over in Section 33. We weren't that cold at all... the weather felt almost balmy to me compared to what we had here in Connecticut this winter (particularly in February). You may have gotten a little more wind up on the right field roof seats, though.

The weather at Fenway this weekend should be in the mid-to-high 60s during the day, and in the 40s/50s at night...

I’ll be there tonight to see Schill shut ‘em down.

Great hitting may win games, but great pitching wins seasons.

How’s the starting rotation going? They gonna start using the fans?
