Baseball Armageddon — 2009 style
What a spectacular night at Fenway. The weather could not be better. First of 18 meetings between the Sox and the Yanks.
The reception for Mark Teixeira in his first at-bat was a little disappointing. They booed, but they did not give him the A-Rod treatment. I thought it would be far louder and more passion-filled. And after he made an out, the folks behind the third base dugout didn’t even react when he came back in.
Holy frustration for the Red Sox tonight. Four DPs against Chamberlain over the first five innings.
Anyway, chime in with your thoughts as the night develops
Look for Julio Lugo to start Monday night In Cleveland. Kotsay isn’t far behind. I wouldn’t be surprised if you saw him by the series at the new Yankee Stadium on May 4-5.
