    This evening, Chien-Ming Wang destroyed the notion that he cannot pitch well at Fenway Park. Heck, he more than destroyed it. Wang vaporized it. If Bobby Abreu wasn’t such a stiff with the leather, we might be talking about something even more special with this one. As it is, Wang’s effort tonight was the best pitched game by a Yankees starter in Fenway Park in the last six years. Just an awesome, awesome, game for the Wanger.

    Hey, don’t look now, but…Alberto Gonzalez has an OPS of 1.069 after this game. Jeter who?

    Lastly, is it just me, or, does Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz look like he could be the love-child of Rosalie “Hotsy” Totzie and Theodore “T-Bag” Bagwell? See below:

    Yeah, I know…I probably watch too much T.V.

      3-0 with a nifty 1.23 ERA – lot more flyballs but also a few more K’s than usual. And two on Manny – nothing sweeter than that.

      Yanks served Boston notice tonight – we’re pitching you inside and there’s nothing you can do about it. :)

      “we’re pitching you inside and there’s nothing you can do about it.”

      What does this even mean?

      Of course they can d something about it. They can pitch inside also.

      Besides, wang dominated because he’s got dominating stuff, not because he suddenly pitched inside.

      >> What does this even mean? >>

      Meaning Manny and Ortiz are going to have to watch the *whole* plate and not just sit on the outside fastball.
