The Baseball Desert

What is it they say about a leopard never changing its spots?? Armando Benitez may have gone across the city from the Mets to the Yankees, but his inability to pitch in big-game situations has unfortunately gone with him. The Yankees managed to fight back from four runs down this afternoon against the Red Sox at Fenway, only for Benitez to blow the whole thing, giving up the game-winning run in the bottom of the ninth.

The Red Sox look like they really mean business this time around - they keep winning games, and not only that, but they keep winning them in their last at-bat, which just goes to prove what Yogi Berra once said: "it ain't over 'til it's over". Keep an eye on the AL East...
