Not Exactly What We Had In Mind

The big September confrontation damp afterthought that is the final Sox-Yanks series of the season begins tonight. A month ago, you’d have been pressed to find anyone willing to suggest that this matchup would be pointless. We’re happy to see the Yanks rolling and safely in front of the enemy from north. But, truth be told, it’s more fun when the games have more at stake than a hit streak. We’ll be hoping for some decent baseball, and for the boys to continue to put the beat down on the Sox. Still, we’d be kidding ourselves if we didn’t admit that this series is something of a letdown. But we’ll take it.

  • Even though it means nothing in the standings, we should still see some spirited play on both sides. But I think the let-down will probably come from the Yankees, as Boston will be playing for pride.
    I’d be very happy with a split and Jete’s streak to remain intact.

  • After the high drama of 2003-present, I’m really just fine with this situation.

  • Looking forward to the SP getting tuned up vs. a formidable lineup en route to a playoff run.

  • Draw the split. Go 3-1. Win out. Just don’t let ’em clinch yet.
