I can’t wait to get home tonight to catch the first meeting of the Yankees and Red Sox! Since Wakefield is pitching for Boston, I have a good deal of confidence that the Yanks will win. As it is, they have taken a slight lead for 1st place in the division. Overall, I’ve been very happy with their performance this year so far (early as it is in the season).
The real interesting element to tonight’s game will be to see how Boston fans react to the return of Johnny Damon.
Hopefully this won’t be one of their traditional four-hour games. I’ve got to catch a 7 AM flight to Los Angeles tomorrow.
