Boston Slams Yanks [David Stefanini]

It looks as if Mark English was right, after two wins in a row this town was going crazy over the Yankees. However, following a first inning 3 run home run by Manny Ramirez, reality sat in.

Here is an article from

"With one early swing, Manny Ramirez stopped the New York Yankees from gaining any momentum Tuesday night.

Ramirez hit a three-run homer in the first inning and the Boston Red Sox jumped on Mike Mussina right away, knocking back the Yankees again with a 7-3 victory.

Mike Lowell also connected and Julian Tavarez won on his 34th birthday, helping the AL East leaders beat their top rivals for the sixth time in eight tries this season.

"Once I saw Manny hit the three-run homer, I knew it was going to be a good night," Tavarez said."


Manny was just being Manny. Luckily for my fantasy team, it looks as if Manny has turned around his early season struggles. He was batting under .200 for most of April and didn't have his timing right. Now he does, and when he stays this hot for the rest of the season, I wish the Yanks luck with catching up.
