Jon Lester and the Sox go for the sweep at Yankee Stadium, while Hiroki Kuroda hopes to hold the Sox in check long enough for the NY bullpen to collapse. Comment away.

Defeat from the Jaws of Victory, twice. Hughes is scratched as the Yankees must think they are getting a bigger boat with David Huff, bailing Hughes out of his start. But is it the Yankee starters that are the worry? Pettitte left the game with Bombers up 8-3 heading into the last three innings, but that wasn’t enough, was it? Nope. And let’s not even bring up Thursday. John Lackey merely needs to keep the Sox within, oh seven runs or so, until the Yankees unleash their fully depleted bullpen. Comment away.

Jake Peavy is on the mound for the Red Sox in Yankee Stadium, as the Yankees square off with their better and somewhat distant rivals, who are attempting to sustain their lead over the Rays in the Beast. Meanwhile, Ivan Nova and the Yankees are clawing their way towards a wildcard slot. This is September baseball. Comment away.

I am absolutely, utterly confused by this latest ARod flustercuck but at least I am grateful his inner circle got the lineups to me early. Just play some fricking baseball, because the rationalizing going on in both the media and the players about what is fair and right about PED use and the exposure of a few of their many, many users is a bigger joke than ever.
Andy Pettitte and Felix Doubront at Fenway. Let’s hope for a great game. Lineups follow, comment away.

Sunday Night Baseball on the mothership sees the rubber match between the Sox and Halos at Angel Stadium. Trout went deep off of Lackey in the first to stake Anaheim to a one-run lead, but Boston has Lavarnway in scoring position against Weaver in the second. Comment away.

Buchholz brings his league-leading 1.73 ERA to the mound at the Stadium, looking for his eighth win as he faces the Bombers. New York counters with Hiroki Kuroda, by far their most effective starter. It’s ESPN Sunday Night Baseball. Lineups follow, comment away.

Phil Hughes has had good fortune against the Sox as of late, while Felix Doubront has been suffering from a lack of run support recently. What does it all mean? Tune in to your favorite radio station as we await the mysterious future. Lineups follow, comment away.

Singling a run through a overstacked infield in the bottom of the tenth for the win is pretty sweet. The Sox will try to build off of last night’s awesome win with Clay Buchholz on the mound. Buchholz has been absolutely fantastic so far this year. He’ll face the Rays, who are sending Alex Cobb — who was positively stellar in his first start this season — at Fenway. Lineups follow, comment away.

There’s sweeping to do. Ryan Dempster looks to shut the door on the Yankees and send them into that deep, dark oh-and-three hole. Then again, both the Yankees AND Sox started last year with three losses and the Bombers went on to take the East. Andy Pettitte is on the bump in the Bronx. Comment away.

The Yankees were blown out by the Sox in the season opener, with deserved rejoicing by the Boston faithful as Boston knocked C.C. Sabathia out of the game in five innings, hanging four runs off of eight hits and four walks (one intentional) on the Yankee ace, and waiting out Yankee pitchers to the tune of 8 walks total. Meanwhile, the Yankees could only muster a couple of scratched runs on a dink from the catcher.
The Yankees officially have the highest payroll in baseball. Again. And tonight, $76,891,257 (roughly one-third) of it will be on display at The Stadium as Hiroki Kuroda gets the start against Clay Buchholz and the Sox, who have the fourth-highest payroll. Not that I care; it isn’t my money. It does give me a smirk that ARod makes more than Houston. Lineups follow, courtesy of PeteAbe, comment away.

All the hand-wringing and soul-searching is done. It’s time to play actually baseball instead of speculate. Jon Lester gets the rock for the Sox, while C.C. opens up for the Yankees in one hour at The Stadium. Comment away.

Raul Ibanez’ late-inning heroics kept the Yankees in the game and then another clutch moment by Raul kept the Yankees in control of their playoff destiny while the Red Sox were denied their consolation prize of playing the spoiler. If the Yankees win today or if Baltimore loses in Tampa today, they get the Division and home field advantage throughout the playoffs. If the Yankees lose and Baltimore wins, things get messy.

The Yankees need a good game out of Phil Hughes today, and a good start from Zach Stewart would be much appreciated as the Yankees face Henderson Alvarez at Rogers Centre, while Joe Saunders and the Orioles host the Sox at Camden. The Halos play Texas later today and Tampa visits Seattle tonight. The cuticles are getting a workout for sure.
