Just Another Day in Papi's World
Another day, another walkoff hit for David Ortiz. Big Papi singled in Kevin Youkilis in the bottom of the 12th today at Fenway to beat the Phillies, 8-7. That makes it nine straight for the boys, and three straight series sweeps over the Braves, the Nationals and the Phillies. The lead is 2 1/2 over the Yankees, who beat the hapless Braves today 5-2. All is well in Red Sox Nation.
Now that we've broomed the Phillies out of town - they and their ace/wife batterer Brett Myers should get an interesting reception back home in Boo-ville - we can all focus our energy on what should be an outstanding series against the NL-leading Mets.
It's a matchup of youngsters in Game 1 tonight as someone named Alay Soler goes for the Mets against Jon Lester. Wednesday night is TiVo night at the ballpark, with Pedro going against Josh Beckett. Then the two staff warhorses, Curt Schilling and Tom Glavine, face off in the third and final game. I originally had hoped for Schilling/Pedro, but now I'm fired up that it will be Beckett against Petey. Beckett will be amped up beyond belief. Hope the 'K' card guys are ready. Here's a question - will Pedro brush Papi or Manny off the plate?
Just thought you'll like to see an interesting link about the Red Sox and the Yankees.Post a Comment
