First things first

First base is where it's all at for the Red Sox right now - Thursday night it was all Millar, last night it was all Olerud (or The Magic Helmet, if you prefer).

The Yankees lost to Seattle, which puts the Red Sox back 3 1/2 games ahead in the AL East, with Baltimore coming up this weekend. For those of you looking further ahead, the E# is 27: even if the Yankees play way better than they have done so far this season and go 20-9, an 18-12 finish would clinch it for the Sox.
