How to beat a team when they're down.
1. Take out their best starter with a liner during the first game of the series.
2. Pound away on the bullpen for the remainder of that game while letting the team get just close enough to think they can come back.
3. The next day, have your #1 fat guy mow down the other team for 2 1/2 hours, but don't score too many runs just to keep it interesting.
Yup. That's what this weekend has been about so far. Not fun to watch. The nightmare of letting the Yanks get #100 in NY against the Sox lay solely in the hands of one Paul Byrd tonight. This is a must win. If not for the whole 100 thing, just for the non sweep and to go into this last week with a shred of dignity. Do it tonight. Do. It. Tonight.
