All eyes will be on former Red Sox OF Manny Ramirez with the Dodgers looking to avoid a sweep in this interleague clash.
Los Angeles Dodgers at Boston Red Sox
Los Angeles is set to play its sixth game (2-3) of a nine-game road trip, as the team looks to avoid being swept by Boston. “You know you’re in a fight when you play in this ballpark,” Dodgers manager Joe Torre said. The club is five games into a stretch of playing 15 of 18 games on the road. Tonight’s television coverage will certainly center around OF Manny Ramirez’s return to Beantown. Since his arrival in Los Angeles on July 31, 2008, the Dodgers have a 163-121 record, the best mark in the NL over that span. In two games this weekend at Fenway, Ramirez is 3-for-9 with a home run and RBI. The team finds itself a game back of the division-leading San Diego Padres going into tonight’s game.
On Friday, some may argue that the Subway Series deserves all the headlines. Don’t mention that to the die-hard fans of these two clubs.
Boston Red Sox at Philadelphia Phillies
Boston picked up a quick two-game home sweep against the Minnesota Twins and now head off for a three-game series against Philadelphia. The Red Sox finished with a losing 2-3 record on their last road trip against the Tigers and Yankees. The team pushed its record against left-handed starters to 10-5 (+420) on the year with Thursday night’s victory and will get ready to face another tonight. Playing the two-time defending NL Champions is certainly no picnic, but the Red Sox have destroyed the NL East in their last 51 matchups, going 38-13. Phillies’ fans will be holding their breath during Interleague play, as the team is just 30-51 against the AL since Charlie Manuel took over the controls in 2005.
After reading the news yesterday and reading my colleague’s insightful blog on Manny Ramirez, I had to chime in on the situation. Just when you think the air may be clear in MLB, it clouds up again with accusations and evidence of wrongdoing. Because it’s baseball the effects are huge on the game, the world of sports betting and society. (Yes, even society.)
