The Baseball Desert

All I ask

The 4,000 miles and 6 time zones that separate me from Major League baseball meant that there was one single Red Sox this past week that didn't have a start-time with "a.m." in it. Of course, Murphy's Law dictated that the game in question was yesterday's gem at Fenway. I got as far as 7-0 in the second inning before abandoning ship to go watch ER with Mrs. Iain. An hour-and-a-half of blood and guts (and the lovely Abby) just about managed to wipe out the Sox' ugliness. Since the Yankees also lost, the standings remain the same, so I'm with Johnny Damon on this one:
"With the Yankees losing, we can somewhat go out there and forget about this but we need to go down to Tampa and play well."
You heard the man - go forth and sweep...
