Okay, Okay…I accept the fact that my boys will probably be slaughtered today as this poor rookie Redding comes out of nowhere – with a 10 point ERA – and walks into the lions den that is Fenway Park…
Nevertheless, the Yanks have pulled to within 1.5 games of first place, in a season where everyone had written them off, and when their pitching has been abysmal.
And so, even though I expect pain – oh…much, much pain…I will cheer my Yankees tonight and hope that they’ll win.
I never think it’s quite “right” to pray for a baseball game, but I think I will offer up a wee prayer or two for this young Redding – who seems very nervous. I’ll ask Perpetua and Felicity and Thecla to pray for him, too…since they all had their turns in the lion’s dens!
