The Yanks begin their final West Coast swing tonight with the opening of a four-game series in Seattle, that to be followed by three in Oakland. They return to New York for Tampa and Boston the following week. As they leave, they’re hot, and we hope they’ll stay that way. Tonight the Moose goes vs Ryan Franklin, already busted this year for steroid use. They’ll also face budding superstar Felix Hernandez on Wednesday night in a nationally televised game, which should be a treat. The pitching they’ll see in Oakland, on balance, will be even better. Meanwhile, the Sox are home for a stretch against Tampa, Baltimore, their make-up against the ChiSox, and the Angels before coming down to the Bronx. Will the Sox pitching continue to allow runs in huge quantities? Will the Yanks falter on the road? It should be an interesting week.
