"Dear Sox..."

Dear Curt & friends,

I'm trying my best here, but with all these 1am CET games I can't possibly be there to keep an eye on you all the time. Last night I stuck with you until the third inning, when I figured that a Papi two-run homer and yet another extra-base hit from Mike 'Doubles' Lowell (this time for four bases) would be enough to see us through, but it would appear I was wrong.

Now I'm looking at the schedule - we lost last Wednesday, and we lost yesterday, so if this is all part of a new "only lose on Wednesdays" strategy, then I'm OK with it. If, on the other hand, it's part of a "we suck with the bases loaded" campaign, then you might want to reconsider.

Thanks a lot. Now go get 'em tonight.
