Red Sox sweep the Yankees in the Bronx. The home town team delivered a good old fashioned ass kicking on Friday 11 -2, then won yesterday in 12 innings even though they went 0-19 with runners in scoring position. Then today all they needed was a two run shot by Manny to complete the sweep and raise their record against the Yanks this year to 6-1. Something's definitely wrong in Gotham and I couldn't be happier.
Nothing's wrong with the Yanks. At least 3 of those wins were 1 or 2 run games that could have gone either way. The Yanks defense was real sloppy but that's just a fluke. It could have very easily been 4-3 Yanks in the season series right now.
What I find more remarkable is that Red Sox fans, who haven't had a World Series win in 85 years, have just said to hell with October and have just made the regular season games against the Yankees their "world series."
I would just like to offer one sound piece of advice:Never bet against the Yankees.
Their bats are going to come around, and they will probably lead baseball in runs scored per game around 7-7.5, maybe even 8.
It's April baseball people, settle down.
