Last night saw the welcome return of one of the most satisfying sights in baseball: the Joe Torre face. I'm not one to revel in the misfortune of others - and I certainly don't want to bring the wrath of the baseball gods down on the Sox - but when I see Torre, Mattingly, Bowa & co. sat on the bench staring into space, I can't help but smile. Torre's "I just chewed on a mouthful of lemons" face as he went out to get Rivera after his 0.1 innings and 4 earned runs made my weekend.
