I cannot wait until the big show begins Friday night...When the Yanks dropped the first 2 to the Chisox last week, right after CC and Pettitte went down, I figured they were potentially set up for a sweep by the Bosox...However, with that phenom Middlebrooks possibly out of the lineup, I think the Yanks will have a decent shot at a split....Also, since I doubt that either the Yanks or Bosox have a strong enough team to go all the way this year, this to me is a bragging rights WS-rivalry of sorts....And I mean that with my tongue firmly implanted in my cheek...
     Furthermore, inquiring minds should be aware: Rumor has it that Monsieur Carnie is especially nervous, and has a beautiful young Thai masseuse (please, of course she is over 18) on standby in the event the going gets rough...Not sure though if that will be enough for him....
