The second of the three game set pits Jared Wright hoping to perform better in his second start, against Curt Schilling making his first. I wonder if it'll be called "bloody sock day" at Fenway Park? With all that has been said so far this early in the season, I came across this interesting quote from the NY Times:
Yet how we forget in 1998, the Yanks started out 1-4. I never get too caught up with wins and losses this early in the season, but I've been asking myself why the league scheduled six games within the first two weeks between the Yanks and Red Sox? I can understand opening the season with a series, but these games would mean a lot more later in the season.
Another interesting stat that I hadn't seen before came from the NY Post:
I think somehow that streak will continue this year. I'll have the starting lineups a little later!
