Hot damn, what a fantastic night!

Beckett returns to the hill and pitches like he never left. Youk continues to be the Hebrew Hammer v. 2.0 (or should I call him “Son of Hebrew Hammer”—I can’t decide). Even Dustin Pedroia (who I really, truly have to stop calling “Wee Dusty Mendoza” in my head) is riding a 9-game hit streak and batting .410 for the month of May. And if the Righty Closer is unavailable? No prob, we just bring in the Lefty Closer. We have righty and lefty closers, people!!!! What a mad, beautiful world we’re living in.

Then, after the good times in the Fens came to their predetermined end, I flipped to ESPN to see my National League boyfriends pull off the unlikeliest extra-inning, come-from-behind victory in perhaps the history of ever against the left coast’s Team Evil (well, I suppose Barry Bonds is really the only evil one...still, it’s enough to carry a team).

And throughout it all, I’m treated to frequent replays of Jorge Posada gesticulating impotently as Aaron Hill steals home right from under the sizable and oblivious proboscis of Andy Pettitte.

Good times. Good. Freakin’. Times. (In fact, I’m so goddamn delighted, I’m not even the slightest bit put off at having to watch Wily Mo play the Green Monster for two nights going. Now, that’s some powerful happiness.)
