If You Called Me an Idiot Savant, You'd Only Be Half Right

Games 47 & 48 - Red Sox

Yankees 6, Red Sox 3
Red Sox 17, Yankees 1
Record: 26-22

Quick and dirty, stealing a few moments from drinking cheap wine and celebrating a holiday weekend, American-style.

Edgar Renteria's numbers since I excoriated him in this space: 11-for-19, 1 2B, 1 3B, 1 HR (GS-style), 5 RBI.

Wade Miller's numbers since I anointed him the Sox' no. 1 starter in this space: 2 IP, 7 ER, 6H, 3BB, 1K, 1L.

The Sox today after I lambasted their effort: 17-1 winners over the Yankees.

The lesson, as always...c'mon, don't make me say it.

And if today wasn't a pitch-perfect example of Whitney's thesis about our ability to be perfectly and completely wrong about our teams, with me, I'm half in the bag. And to top it all off, I chose to stay entirely away from my television this afternoon, because I could not stand to sit through another Sox loss after last night's groin-kick. Super instincts, as always.
