The prospect of the Sox needing four straight wins to keep themselves alive at a key spot should send shivers down the backs of Yankee fans. Hopefully, it will similarly incapacitate key Yankee bats while the Sox tee off on Sidney Ponson.
Hey, I don’t begrudge the Yanks the blowout win today — we all knew it was coming. Johnson was just teasing us those first four innings. Now comes the real test: Can the Sox win a game they should win, based on the pitching matchups?
Let’s also hope that all those Yankees are tuckered out after running the bases so much. The Red Sox should be fresh — after all, all most of them did was run to second and stand there for 15 minutes before going to play their position. Just don’t let us win this one, baby, because after this we’ve got Beckett and Schilling, and then anything can happen in Game 5!
Gee, that just doesn’t sound as inspiring…
