My head hurts

Last night Val asked me to promise her that the Red Sox wouldn't let the dang Yanks catch up. I couldn't do it. Crap.

Let's compare it to Raiders of the Lost Ark. You know how happy Indy was when he swapped the idol at the beginning with sand and it seemed to work? Let's say that's how I felt mid-May. And you know how he looked while being chased by a giant boulder? That would be today.

What's the difference? Other teams figured out that J.D. Drew has a $50 million contract to look for four-leaf clovers in right field, Julio Lugo's sole contribution is to up the percentage of crotch-grabbing, and Dice-K likes to up the degree of difficulty by walking seven batters in the first inning of every game.

What, me worry? I'm a Red Sox fan!

UPDATE 10:35 p.m. - Never mind. Sox win easily, dang Yanks lose, with Clemens pitching, to make it all the more rewarding. I'm fine.

Just count your lucky stars that you're not a Braves fan - it's been a rough couple of weeks, including last night's debacle in Minnesota.

Alfred E. Neuman sez.......

So how's about those Phillies recent series sweeps of the Braves, Mets, and ChiSox. This weekend should be interesting as we have Detroit to deal with. At least our pitchers won't have to bat.

I spoke too soon! The games are in Philly so let me rephrase...

At least their pitchers will HAVE to bat, and we have the hometown crowd.

Speaking of the hometown crowd, which is known for booing their own... they gave a warm reception to the return of Jim Thome last week when he played in Philly for the first time since being traded to the ChiSox.

Julie, I have no idea. We just found out Wednesday night, and no indication was given that it will be imminent.

Michael, the way things are going, the Phillies could pass the Mets and Braves by the All-Star break. Neither of the latter squads seem to give a rip lately.
