Let that sink in for a minute.
It wasn't that long ago that I circled Red Sox and Yankee games on my calendar before the season began. I would arrange my schedule around them. I would look forward to them for weeks.
In my single days, I once ended a date early because I felt it was going nowhere but I saw the Sox were beating the Yankees and I wanted to catch the end of it.
Sure I want the Red Sox to win. I'm a Red Sox fan. But this isn't "SAWKS-YANKS!" This is a team having a crisis ridden transition season playing a far superior team.
Let me put it this way.
The Yankees are the best team in the American League.
The Red Sox are a last place team with a losing record.
The Yankees should circle this game on THEIR calendar as an easy win.
Go Sox... but don't expect much enthusiasm from me.
