* The Yankees: do they suck? Discuss in an essay of 2-500 words, prefererably in t-shirt form. What was initially a tight game was broken open in the 8th by a 7-run flurry of scoring that included Dustin Pedroia's first EVAH grand slam. Jason Bay added 4 RBIs, which is like 6 RBIs Canadian, to the proceedings. 11-3, Red Sox, in the penultimate tilt at Yankee Stadium. Never one to disappoint, Hank "Stuntin' Like My Daddy" Steinbrenner made sure to hem and haw about a whole lot of nothing for the media's benefit following his team's loss last night. Good for you, Hank.
* NOTHING ELSE HAPPENED ANYWHERE AUGUST IS SO BORING. Oh, the Rays won, which sucks. HAHA OMG and perennial sad sack Craig Hansen got demoted to AAA in Pittsburgh. MY GOD, man. You're not even good enough to pitch for the Pirates! Perhaps you should consider adopting an outspoken, caustic-but-loveable persona that will make you a bullpen fixture without you actually needing to be good at baseball. SEE: Farnsworth, Kyle.
Aw, what the hey. It's Thursday!
