The Red Sox had to put everything (and virtually everyone) they had into Sunday night’s win against the hated New York Yankees. They won the game, but it’s ultimately going to come back to bite them in the backside. Boston knows that this is a huge series, but it’s stuck with RHP Brandon Workman making just his third career appearance and his second career start. Workman has allowed six hits and five runs in 8.1 innings of work thus far in his big league career, and this is going to be his first start at Fenway Park in front of the hometown faithful. To make matters worse, Workman is going up against LHP Matt Moore, who has been one of the best left-handed pitchers in baseball this year. Moore is 13-3 with a 3.44 ERA, and he has guided the Rays to five wins in a row in his last five starts. Tampa Bay is 20-4 in its last 24 games, and it is 12-1 in its last 13. There is just no way that we can go against this team right now. Until the bandwagon careens into a ditch, we’re going to keep playing it.
