True perspective

At the risk of having to change the name of this blog to the 'The Boz Baseball Blog', here is what Thomas Boswell makes of last night's incidents at Fenway. Beyond the 'lawlessness' of the two separate incidents (the second one being the ninth-inning scuffle in the Yankee bullpen), he makes the point that Boston shot itself in the foot last night in more ways than one (a point on which Sports Illustrated's John Donovan agrees), and that the balance of power in the ALCS seems to have swung in the Yankees favour.

Episode 4 of this ongoing soap opera can be seen tonight at 7pm ET, and that will show us whether Boswell is right or not.
