Flotsam and Jetsam
Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.
The Red Sox and Yankees are in a virtual tie for the AL East. The big difference is in the remaining schedule - the Red Sox will have 6 more home games than the Yankees. That I think will make all the difference between winning the Division versus getting the Wild Card birth.... Heh - “The Democratic Party in power is a standing menace to the prosperity of the country” Republican motto from 1888 election... "Witches' broomsticks were really hallucinogenic dildos". On a related note - Hallucinogenic Dildos is now the name of one of my fantasy football teams... People forget that Joe DiMaggio was also a power hitter with 7 seasons of 30+ HR and 2 seasons where he lead the AL in HR. Most just picture him as a smooth fielding, graceful hitter but few remember his power... When Albert Einstein lived in Princeton he had a 17-foot wooden boat he named the Tinef - which is the Yiddish word for piece of junk... Johnny Dickshot - porn star or baseball player?... People with those "coexist" bumper stickers are normally the worst drivers. How about learning to coexist with other traffic and then you can make your political statements... I can't believe Redbull hasn't signed Dustin Pedroia to be their spokesman. Perfect match between product and player... May be a little early for nicknames but some are suggesting Bledsoe 2.0 for Patriots QB Ryan Mallett. I like that.
