I know the Yankees are a near-certainty for the playoffs, but that doesn’t mean I won’t still be rooting for them to win every game. I won’t relax until the Magic Number hits zero — once we reach that glorious point, I don’t care if they unretire Andy Hawkins for a handful of starts, they can do whatever they want as long as everyone who needs rest for the playoff stretch run gets rest.
Last night’s game was wonderful for so many reasons, although for me the best is touching Beckett up for 8 runs. The Yankees have had serious trouble with Beckett for much of his Boston tenure, and it’s even more satisfying since I called it on Thursday.
This upcoming 3-game set against Texas presents a bit of a rooting challenge. While I obviously want the Yankees to win, I won’t be that upset if Texas wins provided that Boston also loses. Additionally, it’d be lovely if the White Sox actually played some competitive baseball up in Fenway this week, considering Boston then gets three more games against the Blue Jays this weekend, who appear to have turned into the Orioles when facing the Red Sox.
