New York Yankees @ Boston Redsox [Fenway Park] Game Thread

Recommended Posts

Rough game. I'm hoping that Wang pitches a decent game... but I can't really think that's gonna happen.

Leave it to the Yankees to get Ortiz hitting HR's again. Oh well.

Bet the farm on the Yankees tomorrow.

:roll: You don't even own a farm. :biggrin:

I'm with Carl on this one. Wang will get bombed.

But Wake can get bombed too.

That was the first time the Yanks have been shutout this season. Hopefully Wang comes out tomorrow and gives us a good performance.

Probably see Wang for 5 or so innings, then Hughes or Aceves.

On the brightside, even though the Red Sox have won all 6 games this season, the Yankees are still tied for first.

It's still fairly early in the season. Go Sox

Correct me if I'm wrong, but until Beckett got hot recently, wasn't Wakefield Boston's best starter? The Yankees always hit him well, but I'm expecting Wang to get bombed again. At least they have a good matchup tomorrow, with CC vs. Penny...meaning that is the classic case of a presumed win and they will lose that one too.

That's the problem with Wake , and a lot of knuckleballers, if they're "on" they're untouchable. HOWEVER, if they're not it's batting practice. :biggrin:

I was at the game lastnight. The roar/huge sigh of relief seeing Ortiz crush one to deep center was awesome. Burnett was a joke and Beckett was filthy. There were a lot of very quiet yank fans there. Not a lot of trouble either, which was nice to see. But I was up on the Budweiser Deck and that has a completely different feel to it compared to grandstand or bleachers.

Forecast is damp and cool tonight, which usually does not favour Wakefield.

I can imagine that they were very quiet. The Yankees slept walked through that game. Just an awful all-around performance.

Just wondering what you meant by the Bud Deck being different than the bleachers? Is it a wine and cheese crowd up there?

The Red Sox beat the Yankees 14 straight from April 11-July 1, 1912.

WANG MORE TIME: Chien-Ming Wang had a shaky return to the rotation on June 4, allowing five runs on seven hits over 4.2 innings. Now he

@ what point does Joe Girardi take Wang out? When they score 12 more runs?

Wow....the Yankees really screwed up this entire Wang rehab issue....instead of keeping him down to build arm strength they decide to let him do it up here, in games they need to win, and shuttle an effective Hughes to the bullpen.

Waaaayyy too many chefs in the kitchen on this team.

The announcers are Don Orsillo and Dennis Eckersly - who does the home games in Remy's absence (battling lung cancer).

Yup. They don't have those at the new Yankee Stadium at all. :rolleyes:
