Loyal readers will recall the analysis we did just before the season began of how the Yankees have fared at Fenway Park since 2003. And even loyaler (probably not a word) readers will remember that I despise having to watch the Yankees play the Red Sox at Fenway Park on Saturday afternoons. Not only are the 4pm start times (although today’s is at 3pm for some reason) mildly annoying, but to add insult to injury the game is ALWAYS on Fox, which means we are treated to the absolute horror show that is a Joe Buck/Tim McCarver baseball broadcast.
But of course, the biggest problem with the Goddamn Saturday afternoon game at Fenway Park is that it seems like the Yankees lose every single time. While this isn’t technically the case, they do hold a 6-10 record in Saturday afternoon games at Fenway Park since 2003; certainly nothing to hang one’s hat on.
In any event, the baseball gods appear to have taken mercy on us this year, as the Yankees only have one more Saturday afternoon game at Fenway Park after today and it isn’t until the last weekend of the season.
After last night’s bizarre win, the 20-8 Yankees get to face Clay Buchholz, who was very good down the stretch last season and appears to be blossoming into the front-end starter the Sox have been hoping he would be, boasting a 2.97 ERA backed by an excellent 3.11 FIP and an impressive 4.04 xFIP. New York counters with its ace, CC Sabathia, who looks to continue his sterling stretch of outings.
