Red Sox Update for September 12, 2009

Are you ready for some Tampa Bay action this weekend in Fenway? I hope so cause that is what we are getting.

9 Behind a streaking New York Yankees (hottest team in baseball since the all-star break) it is beginning to look like the division is fading away unless the Yankees start to skid and the Red Sox can sweep them in the final series between the two teams later this month.

This brings us to the Wild Card where Boston clings to a 2 game lead over the Texas Rangers.
Looking ahead the Yankees and Red Sox should both stay in this order for the division and wild card if you look at their easy schedule to close out the season. I would also expect the Red Sox to take 2 out of the 3 games in this weekends 3 game series vs. Tampa Bay Rays especially since it is at home where the Sox are playing very well like always.

As far as the injury front Tim Wakefield is looking as unreliable as the returning Dice-K. Will one of these pitchers be able to salvage some magic for the end of the season to cement themselves on the playoff roster? That still remains to be seen but I’m not banking any money on either of them at this point. Myself I’m almost literally praying that all this recouperation time for Dice-K will work. So unless something drastic happens I look forward to playing the Yankees in the ALCS in what should be a great October showdown.
