Sweep. I'm a bit embarassed for the Yankees. They scored 5 runs off of each of the Sox starters and lost every game. Just no pitching.

Torre managed that like October again.

What a great thing to see history made in fenway. 4 straight hrs;

I also voted yes. I figured a sweep is tough, but the Y's just don't have the pitching.

Thing is, kid called this. Well done.

Honestly, I thought we might split these past 6 games. 1-2 on the road and 2-1 this series. I think the difference is that BJ Ryan is out for the Jays and Mariano looks like toast early in this season.

Jeez it's nice to have someone like Pap close games.

Congrats, RSG!!!

Those B-2B-2B-2B homeruns were quite impressive!

(and thanks to DiceK, Paps and Tek ~ my fantasy team eeked out a win this week!)

I thought 2 of 3 was the realistic outcome, my hope is that these guys don't suffer the post-Y series fatigue that seems to follow these epics.

edit: impressive is Wright (sic) . JD Drew became an answer to a trivia question tonite.

Well, I guess you have to hand it to the Sox. Sweeping the Yankees in Fenway is a really big deal.

I was really impressed with the Sox regular rotation. That group will be real tough this year.

good morning gents,

yesterday on the "old Exile" forum I asked:

Quote
"ok-who wanted to see Paps/ARod in the 9th? The drama would have been pretty intense.

tonite I assume Dice-k pitchs well against the best line-up he's ever seen, and i expect that the Ys will score,

the here's real question of the day:

(heh)

will the sox bats give him the run support that gets him thru the nite?

Or will he suffer "Pedro-syndrome" that IIRC afflicted Martinez circa 2001-02.

Well those questions all got answered last nite.

Dice-K pitched OK and got hit, but not really blistered

Paps-Arod was pretty intense

and we won't soon forget about the run support Dice-k received.

While my feelings were no doubt colored by the outcomes, those were 3 really good games.

And I for one am more than pleased that it was Paps v Arod and not Pinero v Arod in the 9th.

btw, while we are somewhat used to the "epics" these teams put on for us, I wonder what the reaction was in Japan, where these games probably got heightened exposure.

edit: definitely more robust, had to check-out the bells and whistles.

Chase Wright was appropriately named for that 3rd inning HR barrage last night.

Yankees did seem to measure Dice pretty well. It will be interesting to see who adjusts the best in his next start this Friday. In fact, except for some fine defense by Pedroia and Lowell, the game could have gone as a win for the Yankees.

Still an impressive weekend for the Sox.

Well not the pitching performances I was hoping for but I'll take the outcome regardless.  Who would have thunk the Red Sox bats would outslug the Yanks?

Pretty wild that Torre had Pettitte come out of the bullpen -- felt like a playoff game.

That was actually one of the few smart moves by Torre this weekend. It was his throw day so one inning doesn't hurt.

One thing I'd like to know is when a pitcher pitches an inning or so on his throw day, is that it, or do they go somewhere and throw some more pitches to get in the whole workout. Do you know?
