Phil, it is amazing to me how alike are the worries of Red Sox and Yankee fans. In local baseball talks around Boston, I've been voicing my worries about the Sox: that they leave too many men on base, that they walk too many opposing batters, that they rely too heavily on two over-40 pitchers, and that they aren't truly strong up the middle, the hallmark of a great team. I'll add to that that the Red Sox seemed to have gotten psyched out playing the Yankees late in the year -- with that one glorious exception.
