"Oh, Adrian. Adrian always tells the truth. No, maybe I can’t win. Maybethe only thing I can do is just take everything he’s got. But to beat
me, he’s going to have to kill me. And to kill me, he’s gonna have to
have the heart to stand in front of me. And to do that, he’s got to be
willing to die himself. I don’t know if he’s ready to do that. I don’t
FOX SATURDAY BASEBALL : YANKEES @ RED SOX (ROUND TWO)
O.K., Today is round two of the scheduled 2007
heavyweight championship fight between the Bronx Bombers and the Bosten Beantowner’s to crown a 2007 AL East Champion…
And this afternoon, deep in the heart of Red Sox Nation — the current and reigning champion New York Yankees are going to have to make like Rocky Balboa and come out swinging !!!
And if we end up groggy on our feet in the middle of this thing and start to see three Red Sox instead of one, do like Paulie said and hit the one in the middle !
The offense was hot last night and it’s been hot in the previous series and we’re going to need each and every one of those bats today because Josh Beckett
has been red hot and has won his first the Red Sox have won the first three games this season that he’s pitched for them. He has a low 1.50 ERA and is finally starting to shape up and look like the ace the Red Sox thought they were getting all along. The right handed pitcher from Spring, Texas
has set up his success by really having good command of his devastating fastball and
going even more to his off speed stuff. After Beckett allowed a whooping 36 home runs last year, he has surrendered just one thus far, and it was a solo shot. In
his last time out on the mound Josh Beckett held the Angels to six hits and a run over six
innings while ringing up five strikeouts. But one positive thing for us to keep in mind going in to the game today is the fact that Josh Beckett had mixed results
against the Yankees last year, going 2-2 with a bloated 9.45 ERA.
Rookie right-hander Jeff Karstens, who has been on the disabled list with right elbow
tendinitis that developed late in Spring Training, is getting the call today for the Yankees.
Jeff pitched four
scoreless innings for Class A Tampa on Monday and I’m hoping he’s got his good stuff ready for the game today !
He’ll need it…
Until the end of the game….
LETS GO YANKEES !
