As the Late, Great Ned Martin Would Say: "Mercy!"

Well, the answer to whether the Sox could beat the Yankees JV team was a resounding no. David Wells pitched his ample rear end off today, and was probably pulled a bit early by embattled manager Terry Francona. A couple minutes later, a Keith Foulke wild pitch allowed the Yanks to take the 2-1 lead that they held onto. It's the first five-game series sweep at Fenway for the Yanks in more than 60 years.

It's going to be awfully hard to stay engaged the rest of the way, especially with football coming up. The Sox are flying west as we speak and will take on the Angels starting tomorrow night before moving on to Seattle. It will be interesting to see what happens to NESN's ratings this week. Can't see too many people being eager to stay up past 1 a.m. to watch this rudderless ship.

As for us, we're shutting down for 24 hours to take stock of our senses. It's been one big, ugly blur and I just know I'm going to have visions of Bobby Abreu and Johnny Damon running the bases in my dreams for the next few nights.

Let me just say that I am a Yankees fan, but I'm not posting a comment to gloat or anything like that.

I enjoyed your rants and I was entertained by your sarcasm and overall humor that you inject into your writing style.

Sorry the weekend didn't work out for your side, but at least you gained a frequent reader from the "other side."
Thanks anaconda. Congrats to your boys on a thorough butt-kicking. I think most rational Red Sox fans (there are a few of us) felt the Yankees would win the series, but certainly not 5-0. Abreu truly is a great addition to that lineup. Thanks for your kind feedback on the site - I've been laid up with knee surgery this year and this has been a nice outlet - hope you keep on reading.
