    Hey Manny, Kiss My A$$

    Just when you thought everyone had forgotten about the "slumping" Red Sox during the oh so exciting Bejiing Olympics. It's true, with Michael Phelps on the verge of becomming the most decorated Olympian of all time and the United States leading in the medal count, it is easy to forget about the Red Sox and I almost had, until tonight.

    Big Papi, David Ortiz stepped to the plate twice in the first inning, both times with two runners on and both times Papi's wrist was strong enough to rip the ball over the fence. So, I guess that question has been answered.

    After a 10-run explosion, there wouldn't be a no-hit bid tonight. Behind 2-2 performances by Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz in the 1st inning the Red Sox jumped out to a 10-0 lead. Since then Charlie Zink gave up two runs and the lead is now 8.

    In other news from the Nation, the Red Sox have acquired right hander Paul Byrd from the Cleveland Indians. He is only 7-10 this season with a 4.53 ERA, but has gone 4-0 since the break with a 1.83 ERA, plus he was a real pain in the A$$ in the playoffs for us last year.

    GO SOX!!
