With the Sox’s magic number for clinching the American League Wild Card berth down to three games, there’s a chance they could celebrate at Yankee Stadium this weekend.
The earliest the Red Sox can clinch their sixth postseason berth in the past seven years is Saturday.
A Bronx celebration for the Red Sox, who trail the Yankees by 5 1/2 games in the AL East but lead the Rangers by eight in the Wild Card standings?
“Oh, we will … hopefully,” said slugger David Ortiz. “So [then] we don’t have to get our clubhouse dirty.”
The Sox could be the first team to have a champagne celebration at the new Yankee Stadium. And Ortiz left no doubt that there will be at least some bubbly if that occurs.
“Oh, we have to,” said Ortiz. “Of course. We have to roll like that. That’s how we do it.”
Can you just imagine the sight of the Red Sox partying on Yankee Stadium turf this weekend? And, of course, you know that there will be at least 7,000 members of RSN attending each of these games – and they’ll be hanging out, trying to get down to the field level, to cheer their “champions” on during the celebration…
It’s one big reason to say “Let’s go Yankees…and let’s go Texas Rangers!” this weekend.
