I have to be forgiven for having the Sox as my sentimental favorite, I live in the heart of Sox country.
That said I’m not a Yankee hating Sox fan. First the Junior League plays a game more similar to rounders than to cricket and second, I flat out admire the Yankee commitment to winning.
The Sox will be sacrificing Jon Lester (15 – 8, 3.75 ERA L). Lester went all wobbly in the middle of the year but seems to have settled in now. He’s won 7 of his last 9.
The Rays will counter with Matt Moore (17 – 4 3.29 ERA L) who has a walking problem.
And then there are the Red Sox bats.
The Great God Citgo says Sox in 3.
