RED SOX 10, YANKS 5

The Sox finished the Yanks off [1], and took the first game [2] of the series. Boston now trails the Yanks by just 3 1/2 games with their ace going this afternoon. I am going to be busy moving stuff with Emily to our new apartment today and would be a crazy man if I tried to watch the game. I don’t know what the numbers are, but I always feel like the Yanks lose when the play on the Fox Saturday Game of the Week. Dealing with Pedro and the Fenway Faithful is tough enough; add Joe Buck to the mix, and I’ll be out of my bird.

Boomer Wells [3] didn’t take long to fire back at his pitching coach and manager. The classy southpaw ripped [4] Torre and Stottlemyre on Michael Kay’s radio show yesterday, suggesting: “The way I feel sometimes, I think I’ve worn out my welcome, and it’s a shame.”

Someone should tell the fat bastard that he wore out his welcome years ago. Still, no matter how much of a baby Wells is, he’s proven that a little controversy can go a long way. What are the odds that he pitches well on Monday?
