    Jimmy – it has been the strangest start to the season. While I am delighted with the results, even this Red Sox fan never expected that we would take 8 straight from the Yankees. Great piece of artwork! It will be interesting to see what happens when our series resumes in August.

    Hi, Julia …

    At this point in the season, the Red Sox have very simply “out played” the Yankees, resultng in their 8-0 record against the Yanks [so far] … I’m not going to say the Red Sox are better, though, as I think both the Yankees and Red Sox have very similar rosters, and are equally great teams !!! … It will be a very exciting “race for first place” in the AL East — right down to the wire with both the Yankees and Red Sox making the playoffs !!!
    I’m happy you enjoyed the artwork on my above post !!! … I was searching “google images” for some kind of picture that would express my feelings about the very shocking “0-8” record the Yankees had vs. the Red Sox up to this point in the season … As soon as I viewed the above “work of art”, it popped off the screen, and I felt it was the perfect interpretation of the Yankees 0-8 record vs. the Red Sox !!! … It really is hard to believe or understand how the Yankees could have no wins against the Sox so far; but, that’s the great thing about baseball, and what makes baseball the greatest sport !!! … It will be interesting to watch the upcoming games when the “rivalry” [A Season Within A Season] continues in August !!!
    Take care, Julia !!! … Enjoy the pennant race in the AL East !!!
    Best Wishes,
    — Jimmy 27NYY Curran, “BY&L”
