The Baseball Desert

I'm not going to complain about a day off work yesterday (spent at the beach), but getting back late did mean that I unfortunately missed watch last night's performance of "Take Your Broken-Bat Bloop Single Walk-Off Win And Shove It Where The Sun Don't Shine" by Commander Kickass of the F@#k Yeah Brigade (© Surviving Grady): 7 innings, 1 earned run, 8 strikeouts (including career #1000) and a win.

The Sox are now 23-14, good for first place in the division and the best record in the American League. If that doesn't take the edge off having to go into work today when the world and his wife seem to have taken a long weekend, then I don't know what will.
