And One Makes 12...Plus The "B" Word

12 and 0 against the Birds. That sounds so nice. And Monday night it became reality, as the Red Sox humbled the Baltimore team by a score of 11-1. Batting stars? Tek, who was on base 5 times, Wily Mo, with 4 RBI's, and Mikey Lowell, who continues to dazzle at the plate and in the field. Between those three? 11 RBI. And Josh Beckett was electric. As he said, when you have stuff like that, you win ballgames. But the dreaded "B" word has surfaced 1 1/2 months into the season, as Francona seemed to avoid the subject in his post game comments. The camera caught Josh showing Al Nipper his right hand in the dugout after his 7 inning stint. As to what exactly he was showing him, we won't know, but we sure will read all kinds of speculation today. When there is something concrete to write, you will read it here. But most important-on another grey and cool day here in the Northeast, with the Yankees losing last night, we sit alone in first place. A nice place to be. Schill, we need a gem tonight. Make us smile.
