Yankees Are CC Riders..5-2 NYY 0ver BoSox

CC Sabathia with an extra day of rest is a formidable opponent. He defeated the Boston Red Sox by a score of 5-2 Saturday afternoon at the Stadium. Sox manager Terry Francona summed it up best...

“He’s always tough. He’s so consistent, righties it’s fastball-changeup, and to the lefties he mixes in the breaking ball. He commands and competes. There’s nothing different. You know what’s coming, and you just have to hit it because he commands so well, he just goes back and forth.’’

John Lackey, to me, has been a disappointment. He hasn't won a game since June 29. He has given up four or more runs eleven times in his twenty three starts. His walk per game average is up, too and he looks different than the $84 million dollar pitcher who was advertised to Red Sox Nation.

Tonight on The ESPN national game, it'll be Josh Beckett, who's been great since his return and has again become the ace of the staff, facing AJ Burnett, who's either great or dismal. Let's hope it's the latter tonight. Thanks for stopping in and click on this post's title for more coverage of yesterday's action. As always, BE WELL.
