Round 1 to the Sox
April 14, 2008 in Uncategorized
Well, we got the overhyped 1st Sox/Yanks series out of the way this weekend, and for the most part they were good, entertaining games. I can’t figure out how Wang threw a complete game 2 hitter when it seemed pretty obvious that his sinker wasn’t working the way it is supposed to (lots of fly-outs). And the 2 hour delay to see Paplebon absolutely blow away ARod on 3 pitches was absolutely worth the wait. I couldn’t even stay awake for the whole game last night; it was 7-4 when I fell asleep, and I was happy to see that the tide didn’t turn while I was catching some z’s.
Two game stint with last year’s ALCS opponent and then Round 2 of the overhyped Sox/Yanks games. After this, they don’t face each other again until July 3rd.
