Sox Up, Yanks Down

The Red Sox have won four straight against the hated Evil Empire and are dominating them and the AL East in every way possible. Joe Torre's head is on the chopping block due to his mismanagement of the bullpen and pitching staff (on the bright side, A Rod's having a GREAT year! LOL) and the Yankees are looking downright terrible as they are in the midst of a seven game losing streak. Karstens just took one right off the knee from Julio Lugo as I write this. As a lifelong Red Sox fan I have to say that I am loving every minute of this and deriving a lot of pleasure from the Yankees pain and suffering. Hold up, the head trainers on the mound? They're pulling Karstens for Kei Igawa? Say Word! I gotta watch this and stop bloggin' right this minute. How much worse can things possibly get for the Yankees? The Red Dox are currently 15-7 and the lowly Yankees are 8-13. In the immortal words of Sean Combs "Take that!" "Take that!" *Starts dancing on the grave of the Evil Empire while Igawa warms up*

Well, the Sox ended up dropping that game 3-1 due to the fact that Kei Igawa pitched his ass off and the Yankees bullpen successfully kept the Sox from getting on track...there's a first time for everything and even a broken clock is right twice a day. On Sunday, the Sox get another chance the put a foot in the collective ass of the pinstriped Evil Empire's squad and their bloated contracts. In the end, the Boston Red Sox continued their supremacy of the AL East and the Yankees by taking the game 7-4 behind HR's by Alex Cora and Boston's Latino version of the Thunder Twins David "Big Papi" Ortiz and Manny Ramirez. The 5th starter Julian Tavarez held his own against the vaunted Yankees lineup (and we're getting John Lester back soon! The rich get richer!).

The Red Sox have now taken 5 out of 6 from their hated rivals with 12 mores game to go (but the Sox need 5 more!) in the season series of what is far and away the biggest rivalry in all of sports history. In unrelated news, the Patriots just acquired Randy Moss from Oakland for a 4th Round pick (#110) in the NFL Draft! If we get the 1st pick in the 2007 NBA Draft it's a wrap! (Expect a blog on why the Celtics deserve it coming later).

Unfortunately, the Yankees pulled it out 3-1. Hopefully they'll get beat like paraplegic in a track meet damn! Julian Tavarez is pitching? Shit! One.
