BtB Sunday Night Game Thread: Red Sox at Yankees 8/9/09

I'm getting some serious deja vu here.  ESPN's showing a Red Sox/Yankees game?  This has happened before, right?

Tonight's game thread is once again for discussing the game or anything else going on in the baseball world.  Can we make a deal and spare each other not only from all the NYY-BOS propoganda promoted by ESPN, but also the anti-propoganda promoted by, well, everyone else?  Let's just enjoy some baseball played by two very good teams.

Your starting pitchers are two high quality lefties, one ramping up his career and one winding it down.

Selective memory note of the week: I told you Jon Lester's ERA would come down after his early season "struggles".
