* The Red Sox rolled over the Yankees 7-4 despite some struggles for Tim Wakefield (who has always pitched shittily against the Yankees, and apparently decided to honor tradition last night). Although the first few innings were close, the Sox were able to break it open in the 5th thanks to some nifty baserunning and a Jeff Bailey single that managed to elude Alex Rodriguez (LOL) and score Coco Crisp and Jed Lowrie. The Yanks threatened a rally when they loaded the bases in the 7th, but Justin Masterson came in and speedily induced an inning-ending double play to put the kibosh on that. Bobby Abreu was mad. Considering that the Yankees' pitching staff consists of cavemen, a few wide-eyed toddlers, and a couple of poorly-watered houseplants, it'd be pretty lame if we didn't manage to sweep them at home. Meanwhile, the Yankees fans continued to boo A-Rod every time he failed to hit a grand slam or turn a triple play. Those fucking sacks of ungrateful fuck. I HATE YOU, YANKEES FANS. I HATE YOU.
* The revolving door to the Red Sox DL kept on swinging, as the Sox announced that Josh Beckett will be prepared to start on Friday (YAY), but that JD Drew will be plunked on the 15-day DL (BOO). I'd make a "LOL HE IS ALWAYS INJURED" joke here, but Drew's been an absolute beast this season, and I respect his decision to tend to his back issues now so he'll be 100% down the line. But wait! We might get Mark Kotsay! He's pretty much the same person as Drew! Phew. For a minute there I was worried that we might not have an old white former Atlanta Brave with a grizzled-looking beard and competent hitting stats in our outfield.
* The Giants (ack... seizure...) apparently had the, "We want to get back together" talk with Michael Strahan. He said no. AWWWWKWAARRRRRD! The Giants are terrible and will go 5-11 this year. Awesome.
* Hillary rocked everyone's faces off at the DNC. RESPECT, Y'ALL. If Obama wins this election, it will be entirely because of the Clintons. I hate politics.
