Well, here we are: a Yanks team treading water (but surely Martin Prado and Stephen Drew will be the difference-makers!) and a Sox team bereft of most of its veteran talent (and just about all of its season-starting rotation) and sinking fast on their way to a reload in the offseason. Hopefully the Cespedes/Papi combination can show off their home run/bat flip/pirouette skills–that’ll really piss off Brian McCann.
A couple other reasons for Sox fans to watch: Sox castoff Capuano is pitching the bottom of the 1st, and newcomer Ranaudo the top. Intriguing…or maybe not. Comment if the rivalry still stokes your fire.
