Six-Five, Two-Thirtyish, Right-Handed Pitcher: Yanks-Sox Gamer

That’s most of what the trio of Josh, Phil and AJ have in common.  Beckett is having one of the best seasons of his career.  Hughes is… well, he’s.. um… let’s just say he’s glad Burnett makes so much money that he takes the brunt of the wrath directed towards the Yankees starters.  Outside of a clunker in Seattle, Beckett has been great lately and has turned in a few performances that have been positively stellar this season.  As for Hughes, the Yankees went on to hit three grand slams in his last start but not before Oakland hung six runs vs. eight outs.  Let’s see what it all means.

Finally got power back tonight after losing is here in Virginia due to the bitch known as Irene. At least I didn’t have it to watch that painful offensive performance. I turn it on just in time to see Beckett meltdown and give up a nice 4-1 lead.

3 pitch K and it’s done. With A.J. going tomorrow we have a better than even chance of taking the series. Nice pitching by Beckett (other than that one fuck-up inning). Papi, Teck and Jacoby with 2-run jacks and some other nice timely hitting. I can’t wait for the ALCS!!!

I would be more angry if I weren’t completely expecting that result.
The Sox are vastly superior. Period.
3-11.
About to be 3-12 when AJ gets bombed for about 8 runs in 2 innings.
We are a Wild Card team with 1st round exit written all over us.
Oh well. Maybe next year.
