On May 29th of this year the Red Sox had a 14.5 game lead over the Yankees. Roger Clemens joined the Yankees shortly after and within two weeks the Red Sox lead was down to 7.5 games on June 14. Now it appears that at least some in Red Sox Nation are prepared for a very rough patch once Phil Hughes rejoins the Yankees as the fifth starter along with Pettitte, Wang, Clemens and Mussina
Below are comments directed to and responses by Red Sox fan and ESPN Sportsnation Jock, Bill Simmons during a chat this week. Check out what he has to say about the Yankees in October this year and what he really feels about Phil Hughes and A-Rod.
