    Red Sox Lose AGAIN - 1st Place a Distant Memory

    It started out good, but went quickly downhill in the 6th inning when the Yankees ripped off 4 runs on their way to a 10-3 win. Even the return of Manny Ramirez from "injury" wasn't enough to stop the bleeding as the Red Sox dropped back to back games against the Yankees.

    It was all I could handle not to throw my television set out my window when Joe Buck and Tim McCarver spent an entire inning, literally an entire inning, not a half an inning, but an entire inning, talking about the Manny Ramirez "saga." I didn't throw my television out the window which was unfortunate because that meant I had to watch the rest of this game.

    Is it too early to panic about this series? The Yankees look like the Red Sox did in the 1st half of the season and the Red Sox look like the Yankees of the 1st half. The real scary thing is that for as bad of a 1st half of the season as the Yankees had, coming out of the All-Star Break, they are on the heels of the 1st place Rays.

    This game hurts me on more levels then just the fact that the Red Sox lost, it also hurts on a personal level. You see, at the begining of the season I made a bet with my buddy Jeremy that every series between the Red Sox and the Yankees this season was worth a six pack to the winner, not so bad right? Well, it will be if the Red Sox lose the season series, because if that happens then I have to buy him a Yankees jersey and actually buy it, in the store, be seen, buying a Yankees jersey. These a-holes better win tomorrow.
