The Yanks go for the sweep tonight in Beantown. A win and they actually take a loss-column lead in the standings, a scenario that only two weeks ago seemed about as likely as Curt Schilling subscribing to N+1. The Sox can at least take comfort in the fact that they face Sidney Ponson, pride of Aruba, knight of Queen Beatrix’s realm, and send John Lester to the hill themselves.
I’ll be watching this one from the lawn of the local library up here in Lenox, Mass., and there will be free burgers and dogs (that’s my kind of library!), and plenty of good company out to enjoy the game, if the weather holds. If you’re in the neighborhood, swing by and say hello. Go Yanks!
