What do the Yanks have to do at Fenway Park to make this a successful weekend?

I was on The Larry Milian Show on Fort Lauderdale's WFTL last night, and he asked me how many games the Yankees needed to win against the Red Sox this weekend in order for the trip to Boston to be a successful one. I said as long as they won at least one, there wouldn't be any panic in Yankeeland, but winning two out of three would be nice.

You never can trust a lead at Fenway Park, though, that's for sure! Oh, and I see that the Red Sox, who just swept the Angels, aren't quite as dead as the media had made them out to be. They also will have a chip on their shoulder, I'm guessing, over their place in the standings.

Also, expect a mention or two today of the fact the Yankees are 19-8 (Dan Shaughnessy, in particular, will be all excited over that figure!)

It seems strange to have another series at Fenway without one at Yankee Stadium first. What's up with that?

What do you think? How many games do the Yankees need to win this weekend? Tell us about it!

In the words of the immortal Casey Stengel, "The Yankees don't pay me to win every day, just two out of every three." I will be fine with 2 out of 3.

And I can guarantee you -- Broadway Joe style -- that, if the Yankees do lose any of the 3, it won't be tonight. After all, both Fox (Saturday) and ESPN (Sunday) seem to occasionally jinx the Yankees.

Agree with Uncle Mike on the jinx factor. As someone who sees the AL West regularly, it seems like the Orioles may be able to get to .500 if they played in that division.

I agree that the Sox haven't performed to expectations, but the season is far from over and they have a heck of a lot of talent to not get things straightened out.

And of course, all we need to do is look at where the Yanks were at this time last year and the eventual outcome.

Go Yanks! A treat for me - I get to see all 3 games in HD! Pathetic, I know.

I have to say that I hate when they lose! I don't sleep well and I avoid any kind of news outlet except a few blogs which would include this one. I would like them to sweep but that probably won't happen so 2 out of 3 will be suffice. I would really like them to stomp on the Sux because they are getting a 2nd wind and they need to get knocked down quick so they don't start thinking they are world beaters.
