    I think this game is just another piece of evidence that last weeks 4 game sweep by the A's was more of a one off than a disturbing warning sign. I think the Yanks just ran into a hot club that was playing at home and probably got amped up to play the best team in the majors. Plus each game was only lost by one run. A hit here or a key strike out there and the Yankees are sweeping the A's instead.

      Yes, the Oakland series was sort of "regression to the mean". The Yankees have picked up more than their fair share of earlier this season.

    Or – this is just what the Yankees are supposed to do – beat up on bottom feeders. Just as folks are saying Ichiro is now "just a name," so it is with the Red Sox. We whaled on the Sox – no different than when the Yankees would beat up on the Orioles or Devil Rays, back in the day.

    otoh, it looks like the Sox really aren't trying that hard – for whatever reason, their heads just aren't quite in the game. Example – in the 8th, Pedroia could have turned a dp before the Grand Slam, but he forgot to have his foot ON first base. The throw from 2nd was on target, on time – but foot off base.

    Back when the Sox where the Sox – that would not have happened.
