The Baseball Desert

Make mine in a double

A double double, in fact. Four baseball games in the space of 36 hours is the kind of mid-September shake-up of the schedule that makes you glad your team is no longer in the running.

I just hope it's not the mighty ass-kicking that Beth fears. With the Yankees' magic number standing at 6, they have a very realistic chance of clinching the division this weekend, so the Sox' goal is to win at least two to prevent them doing so and having Yankee fans rub our noses in it.
