Swift recap: Red Sox 8, Yankees 4

Ugh. The Yankees were grand slammed by the Red Sox again. That game really sucked. Sorry, for the blunt language but it's true.

  • It sucked when Hiroki Kuroda gave up four runs in the first inning to put the Yankees in a hole right away.
  • It sucked when the Yankees clawed their way back to tie the game only to have the bullpen implode, once again.
  • And it sucked because all of the teams in the Wild Card race with them won their games tonight - the Rays, the Orioles and the Indians were all victorious.

So what does this mean? Nothing. The Yankees are still okay, for now.

Would it have been nice for them to win tonight's game? Of course. But, it's not the end of the world. And it won't be the end of the world if they lose tomorrow though it won't be good.

You know what was good? Brendan Ryan hit a home run. Actually, that was more than good, it was absolutely hilarious.

Anyway, chalk it up to Friday the 13th. Weird things happen always seem to happen on that day. It's just too bad those bad things didn't happen to the Red Sox instead.
