Awww, they’re such good boys...Not only do the Sox give their manager a sweep for his birthday, with scores of 7-6, 7-5, 7-6 they also take Wimbledon from the Yankees in straight sets;-) (What do you want to bet that Tito promised birthday cake to anyone hitting a home run—and that Mr. Double Doubles got the frosting rose.)

Really not liking the new world order wherein I have to fear the approach of A-Rod to the plate. Thank god for the Papeltron setting things aright to end the game last night (one might wonder if he walked Abreu on purpose just so he could do that).

ESPN-casters were as dippy as usual. Manny “slump-proof”???? Have these dopes ever watched a Red Sox game? As for Wily Mo Suck looking “shaken up a little bit” after caroming off the Monster (which I swear I felt a mile away in Allston), you’d think that Jon Miller (himself the bearer of a perpetually startled expression) would know that he always looks like that. The only true thing Joe Morgan said all night (as far as I know—I’ve gotten really good at reducing him to a Miss Othmar-like drone) was that Papelbon “isn’t afraid of anybody.”

With spring at long last here and every window in the building thrown open to let in honest-to-god fresh air, I heard every “YEAH!,” “WOO-HOO!!!!,” “MAAAANNNYYYY!,” what have you, echoing through the courtyard during each back-to-back-to-back-to-back home run. It was like the Sox fan version of the Twilight Barking.

All this preening about how the Sox were able to perfectly set up their rotation and our starters give three of their weakest performances of the season. At least Beckett was able to right his own ship (was worried for a moment that I’d have to retire the dreamy!Josh icon). I guess he thought the game started at 5:15 instead of 4:00.

Anyone else think Cora was still pissed at Lyle Overbay when he stepped in to face Rivera Friday night? Guy’s got the Fire of Righteous Wrath in his eyes. I like it.
