The Great Showdown, Yankees-Sox, Part II

As Julia of Julia’s Rants so eloquently put it, GAME ON! 


It’s Yankees-Red Sox, Round 2!  This time the game is on home turf (Steinbrenner Field in Tampa).  Derek Jeter, thanks to his two-out throwing error in the WBC game against Japan, is home early and ready to reclaim shortstop from Ramiro Pena. 

As much as I believe in the “I want your best against my best” philosophy, I can’t say that I am too disappointed to see the omission of the names Lowell and Youklis from tonight’s starting lineup.

I like my chances of achieving my first victory of the season against Team Julia.  Hopefully, when the game is over, Julia will be cryin’…

Okay, that wasn’t very nice of me.  Sorry Julia… 


On a separate and completely unrelated subject, I’d like to honor Aaron Boone who is scheduled to undergo heart surgery on Thursday.  Godspeed, and our wishes for a quick  and successful recovery!


Oh, by the way, Julia, do you happen to remember this?

Oh, c’mon Scott, that was so wrong!

    Scott….um….my friend……hmmmm….Game on! I’ll be back later to give you some suggestions about great Red Sox players you can write about! πŸ˜‰ I hope not too many tears fall into your wine – I know my “whiskey” will taste just fine!

    I think we owe it to Erin to write about the Twins. So, if it’s a tie, then we both have to pick a Twin to write about (past or present). Of course, I know who Erin would want us to write about…

    Hey, Scott …

    Well, nice speed by Brett Gardner to tie score at 1-1 in the bottom of the 6th inning …
    — Mariano Rivera looked great throwing 16 pitches and recording a 1-2-3 inning 7th inning.
    — Yanks in a little trouble in top of 8th inning …
    Red Sox have 1st and 3rd with one out … Marte pitching !!!
