The Yankees managed to get out of Boston taking two out of three. Even worse was the fact that Alex "I like she-males" Rodriguez got the game winning home run on an 0-2 pitch from Jonathan Papelbon.
Of course, Boston has nothing to worry about. They still have a 12.5 game lead over the Yankees and the teams don't meet again until August.
If I'm the Yankees though, I still wouldn't be real pleased with this weekend. Despite winning 2 of 3, the Yankees coughed up some big leads, highlighted by the Sox jumping all over Pettitte in the 5th on Sunday.
Also, the "Where is Roger?" chant by the Sox fans was definitely pretty hilarious after the Sox took a 5-4 lead in the 5th.
Since I'm a Yankees hater (I have no real allegiance to the Red Sox), I was hoping for a Red Sox sweep this weekend just for the fireworks. Had that happened, I think Old Steinbrenner would have woken up and we would have seen Torre fired and A-Rod shipped to Siberia where there are no she-males to be found.
It's a long season, there's still hope all those things can come true.
