This is IT, Peeps
Tuesday, August 26, 2008
The Yanks have just 32 games remaining (with only 2 days off to rest their tired, failing bones) to make up 5 games to secure a wild card spot. Time is slipping away, munecas, but the Yanks have a big chance this week to make up some serious ground. Three games against the Sox means two things: if they sweep, they are right back in the running; if they FAIL, the season is essentially dunzo as the gap will have widened to a likely insurmountable 8 games.

Remember back in August of 2006 when the Yankees managed to sweep a 5-game set against the Beasts from Boston? Yes, twas a marvelous site to behold and knocked the Sox out of the post-season running (although they weren't really in it anymore at that point anyway); it also boosted their confidence and propelled them to a winning September and an AL East victory. What they DID with that victory shall not be mentioned here as it is irrelevant to my feeble argument/attempt at hope.

The Yankees are in desperate need of such a boost right now. The possibility of a Sox sweep is essentially the only thing keeping my hopes alive at this point.

There's a bit of good news, though: The Yanks won't have to face Beckett or Dice-K. Here's the matchups:

Tuesday: RHP Tim Wakefield (7-8, 3.67) vs. LHP Andy Pettitte (13-9, 4.17)

Wednesday: RHP Paul Byrd (8-11, 4.61) vs. RHP Sidney Ponson (7-4, 4.67)

Thursday: LHP Jon Lester (12-5, 3.49) vs. RHP Mike Mussina (16-7, 3.45)

Of course... not facing their best pitchers doesn't make that much of a difference when we're throwing like the likes of Ponson onto the mound.

I'm so nervous about tonight I can hardly function. A loss tonight might very well send me spiraling into a Yankees-induced depression of monumental proportions.

    As I type this, A-Rod is grounding into a bases-loaded, inning-ending, rally-killing double play.

    Remember when A-Rod was able to come up with the big hit?


    Me neither.
