    If the Yanks Cinch

    If the Yanks cinch this weekend there is no way they will play their regulars against Tampa next week. A lot of the regulars are hurting so it will give them a chance to rest them before the playoffs, not good for the Sox.

         Girardi will probably alternate a regular or two out every day, but I doubt he is going to trot out the B-team.  If he fails to play most of the regulars, and the Red Sox are eliminated because of a Rays sweep, the baseball media will most likely make quite the deal of same.  Selig and company will not be very pleased either. Girardi has more flexibility if he should start Garcia (who was shelled badly in his last outing), Noesi and another B starter.  He can always say that he is just setting up his rotation and resting his starters for the playoffs.  He can, of course, do anything he wants, but I think most of the position players are likely to play.
          Not to sound like a broken record, but the larger question is how hard will the Yanks play if they have the Division and also the best AL record (as in home field for the ALCS) locked up by Monday.....

    It's in the Red Sox hands.  We can't expect Tampa to lose when the most important thing is having the Red Sox win.

    You're right.  He would never trot out a lineup like this one:

    Definitely agree with you.  It is important for the Red Sox to start winning games, not be concerned if Tampa Bay is losing games.    Even if the Red Sox make it to the playoffs, they have to start playing better to even have a chance of winning their first series.

    Yup, the Sox have to win.  If they can't at least put up a fight, then it was their own undoing. 

    And if this past game was not the bottom crash, I don't know what is.  It has to be up from there.   Simple luck will get better results.  And they are a good team.

    You might want to look at last Sunday's box score.
