Bring It On . . . . . It’s Payback Time

After a near-miraculous sweep of the Anaheim Angels this week at Fenway Park, the boys are riding high on a cloud. Let’s hope it lasts through the weekend, one that could have a significant impact on the Red Sox’s standing in the AL East. The Yanks rolled into Beantown last night on quite a winning streak of their own, they have won 7 of their last 8 games, and are in 2nd place in the tough-as-nails AL East standings as of right now.

Where there’s a weakness in your opponent, there’s an advantage to you….use it ! The 2009 World Champs are without some very key players, due to injuries this series. A huge plus for the Sox (hey…you gotta take all you can get baby!). Yankee veteran Ace Andy Pettitte will not be pitching in this weekend’s series at Fenway due to injury, and Veteran Catcher Jorge Posada may not be catching (at least not Friday) due to a leg injury, and (OF) Curtis Granderson is out, and even Closer Supreme Mariano Rivera may not play due to soreness. Gifts like that don’t come along every day Tito…..use it to our advantage!

Our Awesome Beast Beckett will take the mound tonight against Yankee Phil Hughes, a very, very good pitcher in his own right. Obviously, he must be silenced by our bats…often. I am sure the flat screens at the park will be on the playoff games also being played tonight, celebrating Boston’s “Embarassment Of Riches” and allowing fans to keep up with the Celtics and Bruins scores throughout the night. Life is so good for Boston.

The weekend’s matchups (pitching-wise) are:
Friday    May 7th    7:10pm      Josh Beckett  vs.  Phil Hughes
Saturday    May 8th   3:10pm    Clay Buchholz  vs.  C.C. Sabathia
Sunday   May 9th   8:10pm      Jon Lester  vs.  A.J. Burnett

The next series follows right after (at Fenway) against the Toronto Blue Jays on May 10-12th.

What a great Spring weekend for sports fans in Boston & New England….enjoy !
