Open Thread: Game 88-Yanks vs Red Sox

Coming off of last night's big win it would have been cool to have someone that isn't a punching bag to start game two of this series.

Mad props to Ruben Sierra. He's the Yanks Julio Franco.  Not only is he hitting lasers out there, the guy is busting his butt, taking the extra base instead of admiring the ropes that are coming off of his bat.
I'm surprised Bernie isn't starting in center tonight. The kid got his game in and Bernie is starting to contribute. Melky played the deepest center field I have ever seen last night. Let's hope he makes a nice play so he'll get a little more comfortable at the plate.
Redding needs to go five innings and not give up more than five runs if we have a chance in hell to win this game.
