This is not the time to be complacent. Sure, the Evil Ones were humiliated on national television on Monday night—handed the worst shutout road loss in their (supposedly) glorious history. Sure, they have a rotation perilously close to qualifying for AARP membership. Sure, we are 8 gongs up with 31 to play. Sure, our scores lately have looked more like Patriots scores. I don't care.
We have the opportunity to put the proverbial nail in the Empire's coffin by sweeping up the dregs of their 2007 season and pushing them 11 back— desperately seeking a Wild Card spot. Our rotation has been set, our offense is on a roll, the end of our bullpen is solid. Let's put an end to their hopes NOW. Let's make the three games at Fenway next month the setting for their funeral dirge. End it!
