I know what you were thinking, ’cause I was thinking it too. But after giving up a first pitch dinger, Paydro settled down rather nicely, and the Sox came out of Cleveland with a split. We’ll take it, sure. And, man, Ramirez is a friggin’ hitting machine. The team’s been riding his broad shoulders for so long, it’s good to see peeps like Millar (4 for 4) actually swing a decent bat as well. Maybe everything is starting to click. Maybe. Maybe.

Also, what up with Sabathia? Not his pitching, which is good, but the way he wears his uniform. Extra baggy, with his cap in a sorta cock-eyed tilt on his head. Man, that’s gangsta.

Icing on the cake: Yankees lose….Theeeeeeee Yankees lose.
