The Baseball Desert

Random thoughts on Wally's nocturnal habits, explanations of the yellow card system in soccer, gratuitous promotion of RemDawg merchandise... Yup, you guessed it - it's a Red Sox blowout, as broadscast by NESN.

The more I watch this team, the more I like it. Last night 's lineup had five guys hitting over .300 (Youk, Loretta, Trot, Lowell, Cora) and two guys (Manny and Papi) who have combined for 38 home runs so far. Add Coco (who is starting to warm up), Gonzo and 'Tek / Mirabelli into the mix, and you've got a team that looks pretty good. They hit the ball, they catch the ball, and we're starting to see some new arms that can throw the ball as well.

Methinks the season is far from over.
