Sweet Relief

So last night was balm to my soul. Sweet relief to an angst-ridden heart. The Red Sox won! And not only that, Josh Beckett got his 20th win. The first 20 game winner on the Major Leagues since 2005. A shoo-in for the Cy Young? I'd say he is a SERIOUS contender! And the bats finally made an appearance - home runs from Tek, Mikey and Big Papi! The final score was 8-1.

The more awesome news greeted me this morning. The Yankees played 14 innings against the Blue Jays - and lost. They used 8 pitchers, including 2 innings from Jaba the Hutt. So, according to the the Jaba rules, he can't pitch for two games, making him ineligible to pitch for the rest of the series against the Jays. [As I write, the Jays are up 11-9. The Yanks have used 8 pitchers, the Jays 7. Not sure who will be pitching tomorrow - maybe Brian Cashman]

So, we head into the game tonight back to 2 1/2 games ahead of the Yanks. We may be able to distance ourselves from the pack tonight. It's all up to Dice-K.

And GO BIG BLUE! Michigan beats Penn State 14-9. Sorry Martha!
