Sadly, the game tonight was postponed due to a real gully washer in Boston. I had my sights set on 7 IP by Tavarez with 2 HBP's and one good old fashioned donny brook where Julian goes all Micky Rivers on Scheffield. Guess I'll have to hope it happens tomorrow.
Day night double header tomorrow with Julian going in the first game and Schilling following him tomorrow night. Also, they made it official today: Beckett is out for Friday's game, to be replaced by one of the AAA lads. While I don't think Atlanta is as good as Boston this year, they ARE good enough to rough up a guy fresh from Pawtucket. Also, the way the rotation looks now, it'll be Tavarez, Schilling, and ? vs. the Yankees next week. I'm not exactly bubbling over with confidence.
On a positive not, tonight's rain out has allowed me to get caught up on 24 (Jack Bauer is still who I want to be when I grow up: season finale next Monday) and I'll get to watch LOST live instead of taping it. So I've got that going for me.
Finally, the Yankees lost the first game of a day/night doubleheader to the White Sox today. Which means that the WORSE the day can end today is Boston still 8 games up. If the MFY's lose tonight (scoreless in the 2nd right now), we can wake up tomorrow with a 9 game lead without playing a game today.
