"Oh God in Fenway, baseball be Thy name, Thy will be done, bases run, in Boston as it is in Heaven."
What is happening to my Red Sox? Swept by the *gulp* Yankees and now the Mariners? The Mariners haven't swept the Sox since 1989. The Sox are 5.5 games behind the Yankees in AL East standings and behind the Twins by the same deficit in the Wild Card standings. How can this be?
Injuries are plaguing the Red Sox and their pitching hasn't been able to deliver them out of this slump even with the mighty Schilling taking the mound. It's time to break out the chicken bones and the black garters ("the rose goes in front big guy") and turn up the mojo.
Tis a sad day in Boston my friends, truly sad indeed.
