The Yankees now prepare to play the BoSox in Boston. Boston is a wonderful place with a Pesky Pole and where you can be called racial slurs you didn't even know apply to you. It's also the home of Sam Adams beer, or as Bostonians call it, their morning joe.
The Sox are coming off a strong series against the Angels as the Yanks head in, and they certainly will look to take advantage of the Yanks' recent injuries. Unfortunately, those injuries haven't exactly slowed the Yankees. The Yankees are coming off a series sweep of the Orioles, which isn't exactly impressive, except that the Os swept Boston. By the transitive property of the Orioles, the Yankees have already swept Boston. Hughes, CC, and AJ are up this series, which is good for us. But we all know from last winter that Boston has the greatest rotation in baseball history. Scrap that. In history. They will, however, have to face the oldest line-up in history, as we have learned from the last few days of Yankees coverage. The Yanks took the first series against the BoSox earlier this year, also in Fenway, and the BoSox will be looking to even the score. Should be a fun weekend.
