Boring, boring baseball

What a weekend of baseball - coming into the series, it was all A-Rod; this morning it's all Red Sox.

If you've ever wondered at what point a situation moves from the sublime to the ridiculous, just look at last night's game. Back-to-back-to-back homers to tie the game: sublime. Varitek's '-to-back' homer tacked on to that: ridiculous. I loved how the crowd noise increased a notch with each shot, reaching "No f'ckin way!" level as Varitek connected for a little bit of baseball history. I've watched it a dozen times already, and it's one that'll never get old.

The Sox continue to play division rivals (TOR, BAL, NYY) for the next week. Now would be a very good time to ride the wave of momentum created by the sweep and put some daylight between first and second place in the AL East.
