Who Wins May? Sox-Yanks Gamer I

The Yanks started May rather well and cooled off at the end of the month. The Sox played their worst baseball of the young season in early May and have been a bit better recently. The Yankees’ May record is 14-13. The Red Sox’ May record is 15-14 (yes, the Red Sox played a game every day except one in May…Monday the 13th…18 days ago). So one team will have a +.500 record for the month and the other will sit at dead even after tonight’s contest is through.

Who wins May? Lester and Sabathia have the biggest say. Won’t you comment for this clash of AL East titans?

  • Seems like the New York writers are ready to bury the Yankees. That probably means they will sweep the series against the Sox. I’ll be happy should the Sox win one game, though a series win would be nice, of course.
    Don’t we all love how the Blue Jays are doing?

  • You got us at the perfect time pbe…we look dazed and confused…the same way I will be feeling tonight to keep my anger down if CC sucks again.

    :)

    PS Screw the Jays. I love how they suck. Paper champions…if even.

  • One game, pbe?
    With Lester and Buchholz going? Honestly, I think they’ll get tonight and Sunday, with Hughes pitching a gem tomorrow.

    Then again, you never know with these games. Either way, lets get it on.

  • If CC is good tonight, we can win the series.

    If CC sucks again tonight, we could be swept again.

    *unless Tex and Youk just go off…but I don’t think anyone thinks they will dominate from the first day back

  • No damage for CC in the 1st…that’s encouraging.

    krueg May 31, 2013, 7:17 pm
  • Strike ‘em out, throw ‘em out double play.

    Incredible. This is how things are going these days.

    Welcome back Youk.

  • Are the Sox doing a playoff beard for the Bruins or something?

    Lumberjack-themed party this weekend?

    krueg May 31, 2013, 7:31 pm

    Corners now with no outs.

    1-0.

    Well done Nix.

    krueg May 31, 2013, 7:45 pm
  • Lester is not happy with the ump about the strike zone. I’m not sure I disagree with him? Could have gotten some close calls, but hasn’t.

    krueg May 31, 2013, 7:46 pm
  • Robot umps are the answer by the way.

    We have the technology. We can build them.

    2-0

    krueg May 31, 2013, 7:51 pm
  • Stewart hits int a DP…great play by Ratatouille to drag his toe across 2nd on a tough relay…further damage averted.

    krueg May 31, 2013, 8:42 pm
  • K’s.

    Youk.

    krueg May 31, 2013, 8:44 pm
  • Youk laces a single to LF to score another run….

    Then Stewart inexplicably gets gunned at 3rd. Big mistake.

    Solid outing only allowing 3 without his best stuff. He battled.

    krueg May 31, 2013, 9:03 pm

    krueg May 31, 2013, 9:24 pm

    krueg May 31, 2013, 9:35 pm
