Sigh, what had been a mere niggling suspicion since opening week has now doffed the mantle of incontrovertible fact—the Boston Red Sox are the only team in major league baseball incapable of beating the friggin’ Devil Rays.

Can’t help but notice that the suck bug that’s bitten the starting rotation seems to be working like the swine flu—bypassing the very old (Wake) and the very young (Masterson) and just cutting down the guys in their prime. Awesome.

On the upside, it would appear that Jonathan van Every is angling to take über-utilityman Dave McCarty’s place in my heart. He’s got the improbable game-winning home run under his belt, as well as outfield and inning-eating we just need to see a little infield D to make a final determination. With a little luck, that will happen sooner rather than later—‘cause once my Julio Lugo voodoo doll is back up and running, we’ll be needing a back-up shortstop again.

Speaking of The Human Swiss Army Knife McCarty, where the hell has he been lately? No disrespect to Jim Ed or the Eck Mullet, but Dave—despite his awkward, third-grader-giving-a-book-report-like beginnings as a broadcaster—quietly morphed into my favorite partner for TC on the post-game show. Am I mistaken, or have we not seen him yet this year?

...Then again this!!!!! is considerably more than acceptable. How did I not hear about this on Sports Desk this morning?????

I loved McCarty as a broadcaster. He did take a while to get used to it, but he did a pretty good job. He's still listed as a broadcaster there, so I'm guessing he's gonna be coming on later in the season and such. Also, without the beard, McCarty looks really cute. It's weird to say that but it's true!

And I love that Roberts is gonna be doing some work as well. I think he's gonna be roving between Red Sox, Giants, and Padres...but hey that's cool with me.

A roving baseball analyst...honestly, that sounds like the best job in the history of the universe. Especially when you get to work in three great cities (okay, I've never actually been to San Fran...but I've heard great things).
