OK, so I was wrong. I didn’t want the Red Sox trying to play this second game.
They did… and despite another rain delay the Sox picked up 2 wins while the Yankees order room service in Baltimore.
And these are 2 games the Yankees will have to make up somewhere in a crowded Baltimore (hellllllo A. J. Burnett starts.)
Meanwhile Alfredo Aceves picked up ANOTHER win!
Here’s an idea for Francona. Put Wakefield in all of Aceves spots. He’ll have his 200 wins in a heartbeat.
So now they Red Sox have Sunday and Monday off and be rested and ready for the Yankees.
And while I am at it…
THE MAGIC NUMBER IS 29 TO WIN THE A.L. EAST!
And to get into the playoffs…
THE MAGIC NUMBER IS 22!
