The Boston Red Sox are: Thinking World Series tickets that is. The Sox will take on the winner of New York Yankees – Cleveland Indians series which could end tonight if the Yankees don’t come up with some magic. They held the Indians at Bay in the Big Apple last night behind some Johnny Damon heroics and the pitching of their star rookies. The series, and possibly Joe Torres’ job, hangs in the balance.
Surprisingly, comments are being made by some of the Red Sox that they’d like to see the Yankees take Game 4. Not surprisingly, they’re hoping for a 5-games series that would deplete the Yankees or the Indians physically before their own series with the winner. A long rest for the Red Sox, a grueling series for the other guys. Makes sense doesn’t it?Eric Drouant
