Wakefield Woefully Wild As Yanks Beat Sox

Friday night Red -Sox style was over after 4 innings as the Yankees took advantage of Tim Wakefield's wildness and scored 6 times after Boston had come back to knot the score at 3. This was one of those games that the phrase "turn the page" was invented for. The lone bright spot was a Kevin Youkilis single that extended his hitting streak to 23 games. For Kevin, the beat goes on. For Wakefield, well, he would have been better off hiding his head in the sand, or the infield dirt, or ANYWHERE but the Fenway Park mound. He had nothing, nada, zip, zero. And the New York club took advantage. Bigtime. The less said about this one, the better!

Today it's Mussina going up against Schilling in a game that has victory written all over it. I think. When these two teams play, anything can happen. I'll point right to the beanball war that took place during the game last night. And hot tempers, unfortunately, will be showcased this afternoon. May no one, either a Yankee OR a Red Sox player, be hurt. We've hit the Moose this year, and Schill is still fresh from a 7 inning gem in his last start. The Yanks need a sweep, and so much more. And no one needs any pitcher throwing at ANY one. Here's a news flash...the Yankees will not sweep, and the umpires will NOT tolerate anything...not today. Not after last night. So be it...I'll take Curt over Moose any day, especially at Fenway.

Click on the title of this post for a full report on the injuries to Mike Lowell and JD Drew. It looks like we'll be seeing Wily Mo Pena in rightfield for the next few games. And I never thought I'd be saying this, but that might be a GOOD thing. When's the last time JD Drew hit a ball that got out of the infield, much less for a base hit? Good question!
OK, now it's time.....let's get ready for Yankee-Red Sox baseball part two.....shortly after 3:30pm. On For ALL of us. Go Sox!!

And worse than "flatter" was that it was out of the strike zone. WAY out......we win the next 2. Thanks Michael.

Hi Faithy....last night was a "destined to be ugly" game. Wakes has been fodder for Yankee bats for far too long. I hate to say it, but he's been hopeless for something like 8 starts against them! To be continued.....shortly after 3:30. No HBP's today, I hope. People could get hurt! Is that the only hope those damn Yankees have? If so, well, I'll leave that unsaid...PG-13 rating here.

And it's tough, sometimes, to keep that rating as such.
Happy weekend Faithy. And everyone who stumbles upon my blog, thank you!!!!!!

I thought JD was starting to come out of slump. Wrong! He was supposed to have a swing for Green Monster hits. Wrong again!
