Tim Wakefield and Boston have just taken the first game of a doubleheader against Toronto 3-1 putting them again in a dead heat with the Yankees. A bit worried about the boys. Putting the wild-card aside for the moment I think the Yanks need to be a game up going to Boston as asking them to take 2 of 3 in Beantown might be too high a hurdle. Up one game they would need only one win in the series to force a one game playoff at the Stadium on Monday.
Meantime though I'd much prefer to see the Tribe in the playoffs than the Bosox I'll have to be rooting for Tampa for insurance's sake. Best shot will probably be tonight when Scott Kazmir goes for the Rays.
And, surprise, surprise - Vinny's back!
