There are those who say beating the Yankees in April means nothing. To those folks, I say check back in with me if the Sox take the division by one game.

It may not carry the weight of a late September nutbuster when one of my eyes is on the field and the other is on the AL scoreboard. But it counts. And it sure feels good.

Tonight, it’s Lester vs. Burnett. Grab your bag, it’s on.
