It's Only April, But...

it's still the Red Sox, so no matter how much I'd rather see the Yanks get their hands on the Mutts right now, I gotta play the cards I'm dealt.

Avoiding a sweep this weekend is all I ask from the Yankees. I think all the pressure is on the Sawx. Their batters are facing a pretty iffy trio of pitchers. You'd be insane to bet on Karstens or Wright handling that lineup, but stranger things have happened whenever these two teams meet. Pettite? I have no idea what Andy is gonna show up tonight. At the beginning of the season he was considered, at best, the Number Three; now he's the Number One. So if one of them can manage to win, I'll be a happy camper.

On the other side, Shilling, Beckett and Dicey have to shut down a batting order that is wicked scarier than anything they've seen so far this season. RhoidBoy seems to be getting into a groove, and having Matsui on the DL hasn't affected the offense at all. And A-Hole is sitting in the four hole, so smoking hot it's goddamn insane.

The Red Sox got to prove they can handle that lineup while the front line Yankee pitchers are not in the equation. If the Yanks manage to win two of the three games, RSN is gonna get freaked. If the Yanks somehow pull off a sweep, the Nation will go borderline mental....

If A-Hole goes bonkers and beats the crap out of Boston's top line pitchers in the process of that sweep going down, Red Sox nation will need fucking therapy. It'll be last August's "Boston Massacre" all over again. They'll all be curled up on the floor in fetal positions, sucking their thumbs and moaning "Why, God? WHY?"

UPDATE: Torre panics, blows it.

CHB is getting interviewed on YES as I type this. He looks like every Mick I've ever taken a swing at during a bar argument. "you fucking altar boy!"

TC said...

It's "Celtics Night" at Fenway? Green jerseys and Bob Cousy?

KILL THEM! KILL EM KILL EM KILL EM!

The embarrasment will taste like a fine chianti with fava beans!

(and no, Ma, I will NOT say a dozen Our Fathers and Hail Marys for blasphemin'... you thought they were all Irish guys until i showed you a picture of bill Russell.)

and told you they say it with a soft "C"

TC said...

AND it's Fenway's birthday?!?

"Dear Babe:
It's me, TC. Look, we got the message back in 2004, okay? So for just this one night, can you put The Curse back in play? If you do, the hot dogs and beer are on me for the rest of eternity."

TC said...

Ric, you might get your wish.

"Thanks Pettite, A-Hole's leading off next inning. RSN is gonna demand his head get knocked off."

Ric said...

what a punch in the nuts last night was to Yankee Universe (do you own the t-shirt TC?)

TC said...

Torre no longer gets called "Uncle Joe."

Idiot. Yanked Viz too goddamned quick, and what happened to "Mo only pitches one"?

Don't forget pinch running for Giambi, so Thompson has to face Papelbon in the ninth.

Not Papel, I meant that other Asian guy.
