Recap of First Two Games of Yankee-Red Sox Series

I missed Friday night’s game – it was Yom Kippur, and I was praying my butt off that the Yankees should get knocked out of the first round. On Saturday morning, I walked past the newsstand to see what happened on Friday night and the Daily News was making a big deal that the Yankees beat Pedro again. So freakin’ what? The headline read, “Who’s Your Daddy?” referring to Martinez’s comments giving the Yankees credit for being the better team last year. Now what was he supposed to say – that the Red Sox were better even though the Yankees beat them in the ALCS? Instead, he was gracious, and conceded that the Yankees were better, and instead of appreciating his classiness, the Daily Snooze – who are so pro-Yankee it’s nauseating – use it against him. Bunch of jerks. Again, the loss doesn’t bother me because I’ve already conceded the division to the Junkees, so I’m just waiting for October for all intents and purposes, so let the idiotic Yankee fans rejoice in beating the Sox in a meaningless late September game when both teams are in the playoffs anyway.

As for Saturday night’s game, it’s 6-5 in the bottom of the 8th with the bases loaded, and Torre calls on the mighty T.J. Nitkowski to shut down the Boston. He promptly gives up a two-run double to Jason Varitek to make it 8-5. Boston scores four more, and goes on to win 12-5. I was watching the game on YES (or as Bob Raissman calls it – Al Yankzeera, because they’ll never say anything bad about the Yankees), and Michael Kay was quick to defend Torre for putting in a stinker by calling it a meaningless game, and Tom Gordon was tired, blah blah blah… A meaningless game? Then why were you screaming your head off a couple of innings ago when the Yankees tied the score 5-5?

Unlike Michael Kay, I’m fair about it. Because I called the first game unimportant, I’m not getting too excited about Saturday’s win. Sunday’s game is important, though, as we get to see if Kevin Brown’s hand is better. It's his first outing since punching the wall a few weeks ago (putz!). Mark my words – if he stinks up the joint, YES will say that he’s a little rusty, but he made great pitches; the Red Sox just found the holes…
