Jurassic Park answers the question "Should I watch tonight's Sox/Yankees game?"

The beauty of baseball is that no matter how great you play or how painful the loss is, there is always a game the next day.

That beauty is on display tonight. After one of the worst games in the HISTORY of the Red Sox (that's saying something) the Sox and Yankees have to play again tonight.

They have to. It is in the schedule. There is no choice. It is the ESPN game.

But should we WATCH it?

I thought about tonight's game and it brought to mind a line Jeff Goldblum had in Jurassic Park.
When he was criticizing the casual use of awesome technology by Richard Attenborough's character he said "your scientists were so preoccupied with whether they could that they didn't stop to think if they should."

Well Red Sox fans... we COULD watch this game, but stop and think if you should.
It is Sunday night. Spend time with your family. There is good stuff on TV. Read a book. Get some sleep.

Leave the game to the extinct Red Sox.

(Yes, this is my SECOND Red Sox/Yankees Jurassic Park comparison.)
