dy1.gif The force is strong with this Yankee team! Fastest shrunken lead ever! That will teach you to gloat so early. That's seven for those counting at home.

Well, the Red Sox lost again last night. Predictably, Imperialist Yankee attack gerbil Michele has come out of the woodwork, declaring that the (evil) Yankees are in first. Technically, they're tied for first, but if you look at the record from wh... [Read More]

Michele, lord knows I keep weird hours, but I've just noticed something: Do you ever sleep?

Hey, hey lady!

You no blog baseball now, you hear!

You pack house!

(works best with over the top Chinese accent)

The Sox were ordered to slow down and let you guys catch up. Too big a lead this early in the season is bad for the ratings.

Ah yes, beware the Dark Force, for it is strong, Luke....

Pfft. I can't believe you guys are so into basketball...

Call me when your guys beat a team with a winning record, OK?

STRK
Yankees: W7
Red Sox: L5

That's not pretty.... We are TIED for first, by the way.... Tied.

As Jim said you are tied. If the Season ended today Boston would be the Division winner (based on head to head).

When do they play each other again?

June 29. The Yanks will have to win 9 out of the 12 remaining head-to-heads to take the overall series.

And watch out for this year's New And Improved Detriot Tigers (new team slogan: "We're Not Last!")

Yo, Fenway! How ya think Pedro's gonna look in pinstripes next year?

The Cleveland Indians say, "You're welcome."

Good: Beating the Red Sox.
Bad: Turning a solid 7-2 lead into a 7-6 nailbiter.
Better: Watching Manny strike out with the tying run on first to end the game.
Worse: Helping the goddamned Yankees.

"Yo, Fenway! How ya think Pedro's gonna look in pinstripes next year?"

Ouch.

Hen: It gets worse: Nomar at second base. Remember, this is Boss George we're talking about. Screwing Boston is his mission in life.

Michele,

Can you please, please, PLEASE give credit where credit is due. The Yankees are tied for first because of the work of one team. MY team. The Cleveland Indians!

Curt Who? Derrick Lowe? Spare me! We beat them all!

P.S. - this is probably the only time during the season I can be happy, so give me some leeway here. :-)

I love Manny taking a look at his homer yesterday while down by like six. What a freaking loser.

I don't care what the RS/Yank record is so far this year - there is no way the Sox go anywhere against the Yanks in the playoffs.

Call me when your guys beat a team with a winning record, OK?

It may not be all that wonderful to beat a team with a losing record, but to lose two straight to one...

Mark, the Indians and the Rangers..

We'll talk again when Nomar and Trot get back, mm-kay? We're still in first place with f'in Minor League prospects playing regularly. Yep, it's just April, and for some Red Sox, the season hasn't even begun.

Pietro, check your calendar. It's May. April was when the Yankees were in a coma and still managed near .500 ball. Not even that headcase Contreros can screw up the RBI machine now that the Beast has awakened.

The Dodgers overcame a eight or nine game lead in two weeks back in 1982--then proceeded to blow a modest lead in the last week of the season, and blew a chance to tie the Braves on the last day of the season in San Francisco when Terry Forster made the fatal mistake of pitching to Joe Morgan with an open base. Ka-boom. Jack Clark was on deck--on that occasion it would have been better to pitch to Clark with the bases loaded (and a right-hander on the mound) rather than give Little Joe a chance to kill them. Clark, of course, would have his own Dodger killing moment in the playoffs with the Cardinals three years later against the hapless Tom Niedenfuer.

Excuse me while I stick pins in some voodoo dolls.

Red Sox Fun Fact!
"One hundred years ago, on May 5, 1904, Cy Young pitched the American League's first perfect game as the Boston Red Sox defeated the Philadelphia Athletics, 3-0."

Ha!

"Hen: It gets worse: Nomar at second base. Remember, this is Boss George we're talking about. Screwing Boston is his mission in life."

Especially with big mouth Luccino at the helm and Selig's pet Henry in the owner's box.
