They might but I don't know why they would. They folded down the stretch last season and Baltimore hammered the final nail in their coffin. If that wasn't incentive to play hard, I don't know why they'd care about the Yankees series.
I'm certainly not complaining about their lack of effort against the O's, but if you think the Red Sox, in general, have no reason to want to hurt the Yankees, think again.
I hope Lester and Buttholz twirl gems, and Dice K channels his WBC awesomeness for one last go-around. The O's are gonna be in real tough in Tampa.
Either way, I'm a little bitter that the worst playoff team by record, who also happens to have the best SP and hitter in the AL, gets to sit on their ***** now and wait for the ALDS, while two teams with 91-94 wins have a one-game playoff.
