From a Yankees fan perspective, could this game and the one from yesterday be any worse?
Before the start of this series, I was asked by NESN.com to answer some questions about the Yankees and these games against the Red Sox. Here’s a clip from that Q&A:
NESN.com: What are the keys for the Yankees to winning the three-game series at Fenway Park?
Steve Lombardi: The Yankees starting pitchers all need to go at least seven innings and provide a decent start. If the Yankees’ pen is coming into the game in the sixth inning or earlier, that’s trouble for New York. And the Yankees pitchers have to be careful with Kevin Youkilis and Jason Bay, while also not allowing David Ortiz to wake up this season when the Yanks come to town.
So, how was that for soothsaying?
Let’s hope that Andy Pettitte has his “A” game on Sunday night. Right now, the Yankees need that…and then some.
