All of the New York and Boston papers have extensive previews of the Yankee-Red Sox serious today. Predictions, puff pieces: all you can eat. Ugh. Quite frankly, they are too many articles to link, and none of them will tell you anything you don't already know. If you are interested, I suggest you head over to Baseball Newsstand and check out the hype for yourself.
(For Red Sox fans who want to add a little more fuel to their hatred of the Yankees, peep Allen Barra's latest piece for Slate.)
The senior member of the Red Sox, knuckleballer Tim Wakefield faces Mike Mussina tonight at the Stadium. Like most everybody who follows the Yanks and Sox, I can't wait. The anticipation is driving me mad.
If tonight's game is anything like the Cubs-Marlins game yesterday--and way to go Mike Lowell)---I may need to get a perscription, pronto.
