The Baseball Desert

Monday, July 07, 2003

It was a weekend of surprises - the Red Sox totally proved me wrong by taking two games out of three from the Yankees over the weekend, and they could win the series tonight if Pedro Martinez gets the better of Mike Mussina. The Mets, on the other hand, actually started winning, and even managed a sweep of the Reds in Cincinnati. Even my cap magic [see June 9 post] seems to be no longer working - I had my Phillies cap on over the weekend, and they've now lost four of their last five games... There's a reason why I'm an English language consultant here in Paris and not a full-time ESPN baseball analyst, and that is: I'll never really understand this damn game as long as I live!!!
