The Boston Red Sox come to the new Yankee Stadium for the first time tonight, beginning an abbreviated two-game series.
Taking into consideration Boston's three-game sweep of the Yanks in Fenway, how big are these games for our Bronx Bombers? It would, absolutely, be nice to sweep the two games. In my mind, the Yanks need to win at least one to establish some sense of equality with the boys from Boston.
Tonight it's Phil Hughes vs. Jon Lester. I'm anxious to see if Hughes can back up his terrific first start with another solid effort.
