Sunday night special
ESPN is here, the Red Sox and Yankees are here, one more game in this marathon series.
The first two games had the exact same time of game. A nice four hours and 21 minutes.
Those games are literally exhausting, but riveting, all at the same time. Tonight should be a little more crisp with Masterson and Pettitte on the hill. These are two guys who just go after the opposition. No nibbling.
The Red Sox have a very short bullpen tonight. No Papelbon, no Delcarmen, no Ramirez. Michael Bowden is here tonight in the event he is needed for long relief, or extra innings.
Julio Lugo is all but certain to be activated for Monday night’s game in Cleveland.
I won’t be in Cleveland. I’m taking three days off, so you guys and gals will have to make do without me until the four-game showdown at Tropicana Field, which starts Thursday.
