I may pick on AROD a lot but I will admit that he is probably one of the best hitters in the game. It was evidenced last night as he hit a very good Jonathan Papelbon fastball into the bullpen to win the game for the Yanks. As always, the Red Sox-Yankees games are always entertaining and full of drama. I equate them to a prized heavyweight fight back when the heavyweight class in boxing meant something. They beat you up and you keep on fighting as there can be no draw.
With that being said, let’s take a look at what the mainstream Boston area and New York media are writing about in this morning’s papers.
