Interesting game in Boston tonight.
The visiting team at Fenway wore gray uniforms with “New York” across their chests. Their manager got thrown out of the game for arguing with an umpire. And, one of their pitchers was ejected from the game for throwing up and in at a Boston batter – after a few of his teammates were hit by pitches earlier in the game.
Who are these people and what did they do with my New York Yankees?
O.K., seriously, a huge effort from Worm Killer Wang tonight. After the first three innings, I never thought he could make it past five – but, he did. And, for the record, I can understand why Youkilis was steamed – up and in can do that to a guy. Maybe Proctor should have just nailed him in the back – and left it at that?
Expect FOX to play up the brushback tomorrow…maybe enough for something else to happen and then ESPN picks it up on Sunday as well. I would not be shocked to see Schilling or Beckett try to even the score – and come inside to some Yankees batters. If that happens, it will be interesting to see how Mussina and Pettitte react back to that.
The money says Moose and Andy do nothing. Then again, maybe those strange guys in the gray uniforms will show up again – and, you never know?
