Kiss The Season Goodbye; The Red Sox Have

The Yankees won 14-3; what do you expect me to say? That’s a 24-6 loss over two days. Back under .500 again, the Red Sox (or Red Sux, depending on how angry you are) are going to screw up this season, and I for one won’t mind. There’s a lot of nauseating futility to go […]

Now, usually my first sentence would appear as a footnote in most game stories, but there’s a reason for mentioning Van Every, because he starred in […]
