“Like the Band Playing On as the Titanic Sank”: Sox-Bucs Gamer I/Yanks-Rays Gamer II

The Yanks aren’t dead, but they’d need an awful lot of help at this point.  The Rays were not obliging last night, pushing across the 1 run necessary to win yesterday’s contest in the bottom of the 9th (3 of NY’s last 5 games have ended with an opponent walk-off).  How will tonight’s affair end?  Pineda vs. Odorizzi. The Sox are dead, and they’re throwing out a terrible, terrible lineup–with Pedey out to hand surgery for the year and Papi taking it easy at the NL park–that can give Pittsburgh a hand in their disappearing chances at the NL Central crown (Pittsburgh holds the second wild card spot, but not definitively).  The back four in tonight’s lineup are Middlebrooks-JBJ-Vazquez-Ranaudo…woof.  Ranaudo vs. Morton.
