Two for the Show: Yanks-Sox Season Ending Double-Dip/Gamer

Not really the year either of our two franchises were expecting this season, but it seems fitting that the old foes end it, or at least the regular season, facing each other. (Though, yes, it would have been more appropriate for them to be facing each other in the Bronx, but whatever.) There’s not a whole heck of a lot at stake. Mike Mussina hopes to achieve the 20-win benchmark for the first time in an illustrious career; that’s the big news. The Sox (hoping for rain) will try to get through the thing without wearing out their roster before heading west, or going out on a sour note, swept at home by the Bombers. But, really, ho hum. The real action today is elsewhere, with the Twins, ChiSox, Mets, and Brewers fighting for their playoff lives. Keep your eye on the away board, and savor the last few hours of regular season ball in 2008–there’s always something bittersweet about this day, even if your team is moving on. Enjoy, and comment away.

  • Pedroia 2 for 2 so far, and Mauer 0 for 3. That puts Pedroia at .327 and Mauer at .328. Keep the laser show going!

  • Ransom not making it easy for Moose to sit on the bench. It is still Mo out there though.

  • Moose wins 20…awesome, now he can get a contract with some other team next year. Bye Moose, it’s been real.
    Now let’s sweep this final series so we can take something away from this miserable season.

  • Congrats to Moose. I would have enjoyed watching the Sox deny it to him, but you have to tip your hat to him and his season.

  • And now we learn that Beckett has a strained oblique and won’t pitch until Game 3. So it’s Lester for Game 1 and Dice-K for Game 2.
    Them baseball Gods are in someone else’s corner, I fear. Please, please, not the Cubs.
