Where to even begin?

In a nutshell: 
David Ortiz was listed as one of the 104 names who tested positive for performance enhancing drugs in 2003 along with former teammate Manny Ramirez.
Theo Epstein executed a top notch trade in landing Cleveland Indians C/1B/DH Victor Martinez in exchange for Justin Masterson, Nick Hagadone, and Bryan Price.
He also threw a curveball and traded away Adam LaRoche for Casey Kotman of the Atlanta Braves.
Kevin Youkilis' bat has finally woken up. Saturday night he went 4-for-4 with a home run and is 13 for his last 25 with two home runs and five runs batted in.
The New York Yankees have dropped its last three straight games to the Chicago White Sox, which is good for the Red Sox, as they have gained back ground in the American League East standings. Sunday afternoon Boston will go for the sweep against the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards.
