I am sure you're right...I wasn't analyzing it as much as just trying to answer the question.

Derek Jeter must like pink bats.

I am, shall we say, not particularly confident.

It seems like we've got the perfect matchups.

The pitching matchup nobody wants to see, the pitching matchup everybody wants to see, and then the pitching matchup that can be just as ugly as it can be pretty.

Good job, Sox fans.

West making an ass of himself again, getting a foul tip call wrong and insta-tossing Gardenhire.

Pet Peavy. Enjoy!

In other news, after two long years battling suck, Javier Vazquez has succumbed under his own weight of suck.

He has been placed on the bereavement list.

Luckily, we can run a 4 ran rotation with a day off.

Shalackey strikes again.

Every time the Red Sox approach .500, they lose a couple in a row.

And yet they are only 5 games out.

Cursed Jimmy Rollins.

Whatever, I'll trade a Marlins breakdown for a Heat series winner.

I said that Victorino was in one of his modes where he's only good for groundouts and seeing eye singles. He then homered.

My father and I spent a minute running through all the people we'd rather have in a big spot than Jimmy Rollins. He then doubled.

Being proven wrong is fun.

Girardi blows my mind sometimes.

Down 1 in the 10th, Soria was wild - walks Martin on 4 pitches and is 3-1 on Gardner, and Girardi makes him bunt. Mind you, Gardner leads the league in OBP over the past two weeks or so.

He doesn't realize that they scored 1 in the 10th despite the bunt, not because of it.

Perhaps you should manage the New York Yankees?

Konerko, holy shit. Fucking awesome play to end the game in a nice comeback win. Check it out on your local highlight clip show. Peavy looked strong. Looks like a couple of guys might be starting to get their swings back together.

It's been a shit season so far, and we've dug a huge hole, but it's only May. Starting to take the baby steps. Baby steps. Let's go.
