    *I can’t believe Burnett got handled in yesterday’s matchup… I don’t think anybody saw that coming. Hopefully Sabathia can grab this one by the horns and get the job done. (Along with bringing our bats back to life…)

    Hey! “Resotre order.” Nice way of putting it. I know that whatever happens the Yankees will still be in first, but I think they need to win this series. It would be a big confidence booster to win a series in Fenway and then head home. They need to hit with runners in scoring position! And CC needs another start like his last time. If we are lucky and CC is good, we will only need 1 run to win. -Virginia
