The Yanks should gain at least a game on the Sox this weekend. Boston has its hands full with the best team in baseball (Sorry, Detroit) while the Pinstripers take on the recently hot Tampa Bay Devil Rays. Here’s the plan: Jaret Wright pitches 5.2 effective innings of 1-run baseball.The Yanks, meanwhile, score 8 runs in the first. They win the game 15-4. They continue their dominance the next couple of games and sweep the series. The Red Sox, on the other hand, turn into scared puppies in Chicago’s south side. They get swept by the defending champs. The Yanks trail the Sox by one game going into the All-Star break.
Tonight, we’ll see if Jaret ("I am not Jaret Wright, I am not Jaret Wright…") Wright does his part of the plan. Jae Seo goes for the Rays. Comment away!
