The Yankees AGAIN?

Weekend is over, no sense dwelling on it.  Now we are witness to one of the oddest things in MLB scheduling:  The two-day series.  Not only do the Sox play one in New York but then they play another one in Boston against the Twins.  I don’t normally like the two-day series but anything that gets the Sox out of the Bronx sooner rather than later is all right with me.

Daisuke Matsuzaka goes up against Phil Hughes tonight.  Hughes is 5-0 with an ERA of 1.38.  Would be nice if tonight they got his ERA up past four.  Daisuke is coming off a tremendous start and though having to follow it up against the Yankees doesn’t give me all kinds of warm feelings, at least I don’t feel the impending doom that I once might have felt.  Anything could happen tonight so I’m staying positive!

Genuine good news is that Mike Cameron will most likely be activated for the Yankees series either today or tomorrow and Jacoby Ellsbury is starting his rehab assignments this week – this afternoon at Pawtucket and starting tomorrow (because the PawSox go on the road) in Portland. I’m looking forward to the team getting all of it’s pieces back together (not that Darnell McDonald hasn’t been a little slice of heaven because he has) and making that big run.  The Sox are 5-5 in their last ten games.  Not stellar (they were 6-4 in the ten games previous) but also not as horrible as it feels.

So the fun begins at 7:05 tonight (on both NESN and ESPN).  Could be fun.

Tomorrow the Sox are, as of right now, putting TBA up against CC Sabathia for first Yankees live chat of the year.  The Sox are four for four when we live chat so join us!  Would be nice if we were live chatting a two game sweep!

Enjoy the day folks!  For, regardless of which way the score goes, the night will most likely be filled with much cursing and the reaching of the Tums.
