* Remember those fools that said the Sox couldn't score runs if they traded away Manny. I think it is safe to say that this team can score even without that Quitting Shithead on the team, in fact they are scoring more then before. Now, true they are beating on the Single A Rangers, and Royals but still wins are wins. Lord Mothra has completed finished its cocoon phase and has morphed into "Total Destruction Mode" Mothra who is here to destroy opposing lineups, and leave nothing but carnage and annihilation behind. Mothra went 7 innings shutting out the Rangers, and improving his record to a mind blowing 13-2. Mike Timlin came in and did what he did best, coming into a meaningless game and getting three outs. Woopee! Large Father hit his 3rd (should have been 4th) 3 run homer of the series, Youkilis smoked the ball around the park, and Jed Lowrie adding his touch to the win. Lowrie after further review looks more like Uh-ha-ha-ha ...
*Michael Phelps wins his 6th gold medal, breaking his 6th world record. This dude is getting screwed though, he is THE draw for this entire Olympics. There is a frenzy around Phelps, every one wants to watch him kick the piss out of the rest of the world. NBC knows this, and has Phelp's events set at the end of the Olympics telecast every night, making you watch all sorts of other low ratings event so you won't miss Phelps. Does Phelps get paid any of the huge revenues NBC is grabbing because of him? Well other than the Gatorade ad, no. He will leave these Olympics grab a few endorsement deals, but he will never see the money he deserves. He may be the biggest athlete in the world right now, but he will never receive the lucrative contracts Tiger Woods, Alex Rodriguez or Peyton Manning get.
* John Lynch is coming to the Pats, signing a one year contract. Get ready New England, a big positive is the dude can hit:
