Game 160: Capuano v. Wright

Six months ago, how many people would have thought that this game would have been all but meaningless? Or that the Red Sox would be trotting out seven rookies at this point in the season, including a 30-year-old knuckleballer (which is only one more than the Yankees tonight)? Or that the Yankees two best hitters in down the stretch would be a Mets cast-off and a guy that had a 97 wRC+ in his previous 800+ PA? Ain't baseball grand?
