Yankees & Red Sox Series Preview Podcast


A midst all the toasting, cheering and probably even crying today, there will be a ballgame to be played and it’s no ordinary ball game.  The latest chapter in the Yankees and Red Sox electric rivalry is about to begin the 2012 version with game one set for Friday night.

Clay Buchholz takes the mound for the Sox and he’ll be up against the young up starter, Ivan Nova.  There’s going to be a lot of emotion at Fenway Park tonight, putting a buzz in the atmosphere.  The Red Sox seem to play well when there is a lot of emotion and hype from the crowd, given they’ve won their last eight home openers, a night that always has more charge in the air.

For this series preview we did something different.  Ricky from Yanks Go Yard, a Fansided Yankees site, was gracious enough to invite yours truly to take part in a podcast where we broke down the series and dissected both the Red Sox and Yankees.  We dicussed the Yankees age, their concern over pitching, Andy Pettite as well as a breakdown of the pitching matchups.  Ricky couldn’t resist, so we wound up talking Bobby V, Jacoby Ellsbury and the bullpen, all sore spots for Red Sox Nation.

We also made our predictions and who says Red Sox fans and Yankees fans can’t agree on something?  Both Ricky and I predict a Red Sox win this weekend with the Sox taking the rubber match on Sunday night.  Although we don’t agree on the first two games, we do agree the Sox will win this series.  Maybe this will be the rallying point for the club to help them get over the hump that Bobby V created.

    If we could start gaining momentum with this, of all series, it would be pretty sweet!  And, of course, we’ll always have 2004… :o)  Having a night of no baseball last night was good for my heart– I didn’t need to worry about another embarrassing loss.  At least the Yankees aren’t starting out so stellar either.

     @cpasitesolutions No baseball was good for my heart as well although I did feel a little lost at 7:10. It’s amazing how we devote so much time to the Sox every night. But it was a nice refresher to forget about the old and start with the new being this series.  Two of three would be nice and maybe a turn around point.
