Play Ball

Well, here we go. This season's first meeting of the Red Sox and the Yankees.

Through a coincidence that would seem cliche even in the movies, the teams are in an exact dead-heat tie. Each with records of 27-16.

The Red Sox optimist in me must point out that Boston has won 6 out of the last 10 games, and New York has won only 3. I don't follow the Yankees on a daily basis, but it seems that they are struggling right now. Until three days ago I would have said that the Sox are just the opposite, surging. But the just-past series with Annaheim was dissapointing, the Angels taking two out of three.

We won last night, but we could have won the other two games as well. We lost them largely due to our own blunders. Annaheim didn't let us get away with those mistakes, and you can bet the Yanks won't either.

So here we go. Tonight Red Sox Nation will huddle in front of the TV in the perpetual hope that "this is the year." Well, it IS dammit!

At least we got more hits than they did.

Sigh again.

Tonight Pedro.
