Tough first week in my high school football picks as I went 10-6. George was a little bit better as he went 11-5. I was surprised by a few of the games, but maybe I shouldn’t have been.

The Yankees clubbed the Red Sox and Chris Sale 9-2. The Yankees take 3 out of 4 and win the season series 11-8. I don’t think the season series is that significant except if has to be used in a tiebreaker.

The Red Sox won the season series from Cleveland 4-3 and many people feel the Sox have no chance if they meet the Indians in the playoffs.

Chris Sale was 0-3 against the Yankees, but except for the last two starts against them he pitched pretty well. His ERA against the Yankees going into last night’s game was 2.12. I quite frankly thought he was squeezed ┬áby the home plate umpire against the Yankees the last two starts, but I’ll give the Yankees credit for getting the pitch count up last night. No doubt about that.
