Hard to believe it's already been a week since the Red Sox won their second championship in the past 4 years: in case you're counting that's 2 in the 21st century.
Conversely, the Yankees have spent over $1 BILLION dollars in the past 7 seasons and have a grand total of 0 titles to show for it. Just goes to show that you can spend all the money you want, but unless you know what you're doing with it, you might as well invest the money in a Yak farm.
Same result: no championship.
Heading into the Hot Stove time of year, and the biggest issues for the Sox are Lowell, Schilling, Timlin, and can they find someone to take Coco Crisp off our hands: young Master Jacoby looks to be manning CF for the next 10 years or so.
We all turned our clocks back an hour last night, and when I noticed it was almost dark around 5:30 this afternoon, it hit me: baseball is REALLY over until next spring. No more games, no DO and Remy, no more Riverdancing. Just surfing the internets trying to find some bits of news about the team, obsessing over who will fill the backup catcher position, and wondering what exactly Manny whispered in Steve Carell's ear right before sitting down Friday night.
The mind boggles.
SIGN MIKE LOWELL.
Just because it needed to be said.
