To hear Sox fans tell it, the division, after 13 games, is already sewn up. Well now. Don’t say we didn’t tell you the Yanks would have it rough at the start. Because we did. The Sox? Credit where credit is due. They’re winning, and another awesome test of their skill arrives at Fenway this evening: Casey Fossum (a familliar face) and the DRays. Clement goes for the Bostons. Over/under on hit batsmen in the game is 43. Meanwhile, up in the Great White North—yes, the Yankees are away for the 10th time in 13 games—Bomber ace Randy Johnson takes on Gustavo Chacin, who has somehow made it to 2-0 (including a win over Boston) despite less-than-thrilling numbers. He’s due to come down a peg, and for the record, against our Bombers he’s 1-4 with a 4.99 era and .297 batting average against over the past 3 years. The question on everyone’s mind: how long will Randy last out there? I guess we’ll find out. Seven o’clock game times, so whichever side you’re rooting for, be prepared to keep an eye on the away board.
