Tonight, Wake faces the Yankees and Joba Chamberlain on the big stage with Joe Morgan breaking it all down for us. This, to me, is a big game. Not that the Yankees are really competing for anything right now, but the difference between a 3-1 domination in their backyard and splitsville seems huge.
So let’s end the holiday weekend on a positive note. Knock out Joba by the third, put the boots to the bullpen, maybe even have a good old-fashioned Red Sox – Yankees brawl towards the latter innings. Just for old times sake.
Just get some runs for Wake.
