Throw It in and Duck

Homers flew out of The House That Ruth Built, but unfortunately the Bombers won the homerun derby and the game. Curt Schilling could take pride in some engineering feats, on the initiation side of taters from A-Rod, Posada, and 'Juice Guy' Jason Giambi.

Giambi has lost that 'Twiggy' build variously attributed to parasites, steroid withdrawal, and anorexia nervosa. Kinda makes you wonder what the BALCO boy has cooked up lately.

Last night's action was just one giant downer, less Lowell's double down streak broken (with a homer), and four Big Papi hits, including legging out an infield hit to rightcenter.

Melky Cabrera, the locals' replacement rightfielder reminds you of whom? I can't put my finger on it yet, but I'm thinking about it.

Tonight Tim Wakefield tries to recapture the magic against Chacon for the hated Yankees. Meanwhile, Kevin Youkilis continues to look solid at first base, and maybe Francona will rethink sitting 'Talisman' Wily Mo Pena, who belongs out there every day, for now anyway.
