    When you consider how the Boston Red Sox ended 2011 and then started 2012, and then throw today’s game in there…

    …well…

    …you have to start wondering if there’s a new curse in Beantown, or something?

      I know better than to write off the Red Sox, and I know pennants aren’t won in April, but thumping the Red Sox like this? Feelsgoodman

      The funny thing is that I was watching the game with my 8-year old son. And, he’s getting super pissed as the Yankees fall behind, 5-0, 7-0, etc.

      And, I am giving him all the standard lines to try and calm him down…

      ..if you’re going to fall behind big, better to do it early in the game, so that you have time to mount a comeback…

      ..they’re playing in Fenway Park, where no lead is safe, and teams can score a lot of runs in a hurry…

      And, look what happened. The Yankees made me look smart.

      @ Steve L.:

      Yeah, but did you really believe they were going to come back from 9 -0? not me. The only reason I stuck w/ it was to watch the end of the perfect game. Surprised to learn the Yanks drew to 9-5 when the perfect game was finished. Then couldn’t tear myself away even though I was due somewhere else.

      Love doing that to the Red Sox!

      When I left the gym, it was 7-0, when I was driving to NY, it was 9-1. I heard the comeback on the radio. I was pulling on to I-80, after gassing up when Swisher hit the double. According to Waldman, he was going nuts on 2nd.

      I don’t know if 880 switched to a lower signal, but I’ve been having a hard time listening in the Patterson & Summit area. Too much static. And the few times when I finally am able to hear the game clearly, Frick and Frack are talking about everything except the game.

      Of course not. I was just trying to calm down my son.

      Why in the world would you expect a radiocast to describe the game.

      Having left Sterling in place for over 20 years, that’s the last thing the Yanks want from their radio crew.

      It would be OK if Sterling were paired with an actual color commentator. The pairing of Sterling with Waldman is beyond confusing. You can’t have two show-tunes belting hams on the radio at the same time. It’s unbearable.
