Red Sox win 8-3. Bats: Gold. Arms: Gold. We stay 2.5 back. Hopefully by the end of the Yanks' road trip, we'll be back in first.

For some reason, I looked at Extra Bases during the eighth. Turns out it was my boy Ben "Willie MayEs" Collins posting. The guy who whenever I look at his writing, I see things that out him as someone who knows nothing about baseball. Tonight, it was no different, as the first thing I read was this:

Beckett gives up a triple to Scott Hairston and is jettisoned for Daniel Bard. He'll have to whip out that 100-mph heat in order to preserve the 22-inning scoreless streak the bullpen has accrued since the All-Star Break.

That clearly implies he thinks if a pitcher comes in and allows the runner already on third to score, that that pitcher is charged with the run. Eh, no Peg. That's a rule your dad teaches you when you're pitching in Little League and you're like "whoa, weird" at first, but then it settles into your brain and you know it for the rest of your life. I was gonna just leave it at that, but I checked later, and the dude admitted he was clueless, saying that a commenter asked if the run would be charged to Bard, and that he had to "check with a Sox stats guy"! Globe, please fire this man. I'm not looking for a job here, but please, there are so many great Sox bloggers out there who deserve to be paid for what they do. Give somebody who knows their shit a shot, and leave the Tweeters to the celebrity gossip world.

Oh, and YES has still got it. They still know what the people want. NESN showed the highlight of a Swisher home run just now, and of course they used the YES feed. Why do they use YES's feed? I have no idea. But they always do. Anyway, while Swisher was rounding the bases, YES cut to a shot of Jeter in the dugout walking with a cup of water. So, I mean, you know, that's what the audience needs to see. Of course. It's a no-brainer. Jeter walking along with water is INTEGRAL to a home run by another guy. Seriously, what the fuck is their problem? Who the fuck cares? I don't call Zsa Zsa Gabor to see what she's doing every time my dog takes a shit. In fact, I don't even have a dog. The point is, who the fuck cares? Maybe if Jeter gets that disease where half your face becomes paralyzed for a couple weeks, they'll be less likely to show him for the sheer hell of it, as not to frighten the viewer. Of course, the worst part about this is that the NESN viewer has to see it, too.

#14 goes up to the roof Tuesday! Maybe we can cut to a shot of Reid Nichols mowing his lawn right while the number is being revealed!

I'll have pics from the ceremony eventually, provided I get to the park on time. Fingers crossed for not much traffic.

I think Zsa Zsa Gabor is the only woman in Hollywood that Jeter hasn't been linked with at some point. I'm sure she'd like it if you did call her.

I'm getting a "Theo's Working on a Back-Up-The-Truck MegaDeal to Bring Us Adrian Gonzalez" kind of feeling, and I like it.
I don't call Zsa Zsa Gabor to see what she's doing every time my dog takes a shit. In fact, I don't even have a dog.

Dadgummit, Jere, that's the second time in just a few weeks that you've made me spew coffee all over my monitor.

Zsa Zsa Gabor... Reid Nichols mowing his lawn... hahahahahahahaa!!!
totally and utterly the shit.
