The Red Sox averted a sweep last night in a twelve inning thriller. Fox Sports has to be hoping the Red Sox come back and make this a tight series, but the Yankees send their ace to the mound this afternoon in a game that would have been played Friday had it not been for Mother Nature.
I’m one of those rare people who neither love nor hate the Yankees. I think they’re good for baseball and if they finish off the Red Sox, it’s hard to argue with seven pennants and four World Series Championships (and counting) the last nine years.
Over in the National League, things are lot less clear. I was glued to the radio driving home last night listening to game four. No matter how you cut it, we’ve gotten some great baseball this offseason. Let’s hope the World Series is just as exciting.
The Tigers claimed Byron Gettis and DeWayne Wise off of waivers. I’ll do a little mini-analysis of both later tonight, but this is nothing earth shattering.
