Better dead than Red (Sox)

David Ortiz, Johnny Damon, and other Hose get with the trash-talking prior to this weekend’s showdown.
And, you know, they’ve got us on the facts. Our pitching is so shitty right now that I keep thinking I’m watching a Tigers game, and despite a few recent encouraging starts, our middle “relief” is anything but, the Loaiza trade looks dumber with each passing day, and A-Rod still is not getting enough done with guys on base. Right now Boston is the better team, handily.
But trying to roll up on the Yankees all “we’ll beat your asses” is…whatever. Seriously, whatever. First of all, trying that kind of high-school-football intimidation tactic on the winningest franchise in the game is sad. Second of all…you probably won’t beat anything but yourselves, same as you always do.
So, we’ll see. My prediction: Boston takes two out of three but still can’t win the division.

    I’ll go you one further and say the Sox take the first one and then drop two, starting a slow dive downward that finds them 7 out at season’s end. I’m not happy about it, but I’m just saying.
