The Yankees beat the Red Sox 4-3 in a thriller.
Jorge Posada was feeling OK after being run over on Saturday. This notebook also has word on some new players headed up.
The Yankees are the Tigers could fight it out for one playoff spot.
Just got home from Boston. Fueled by the adrenalin of watching that game and one big can of Red Bull, we made the trip quick. It’s nice to get home after a nine-game road trip spread out over 11 days on the road.
It wasn’t so bad. I stayed with my family this weekend and got to see my niece and nephew. Leah is a Pop Warner cheerleader this fall and Jason is well on his way to setting the record for most things climbed by a 2-year-old. Plus he’s very adept at spotting planes and pointing them out to you.
Meanwhile, my sister Karen and her husband Dave were at Fenway sitting in right field and my Dad and brother-in-law Brian were in Foxboro for the Pats game. We had it all covered. No wonder I became a sportswriter.
I’m not covering the game today but we’ll get a lineup posted at some point.
