The Sox lost 2 out of 3 to the Yankees a couple of weeks ago at Yankee Stadium. Jon Lester earned the only win in the series, and got huge back-up from Pedro Ciriaco, who went 4-for-4. Even though he is labeled as a "Yankee Killer", that 4-for-4 performance was sandwiched by a pair of 0-for-3 performances. Adrian Gonzalez hit a pair of home runs in that series, but that doesn't matter anymore.This time
Laser Show: Pedro Ciriaco
Pitch Around: Curtis Granderson
This SOB has been pissing me off ever since he joined the New York Yankees. Good for him, he can hit 30+ home runs over the 200ft. wall in right. At least put a 37ft wall up to make it challenging. I am not in the mood for Granderson to add to his 14 career home runs against the Sox.
Don't Fall Behind: Anyone
If the Red Sox want to play spoiler, they have to jump all over Yankees pitching and take away their confidence. The Red Sox are now the 2011 Orioles and they can make the top teams in the East miserable. They probably wont.How we see it goin' down
As much as I would love to see the Red Sox play spoiler to the Yankees, Orioles, and Rays, instead, they will probably just lay down and die. Boston has had their success against the Yankees while struggling, but this won't be one of those times, nor will it matter.
