Red Sox-Yankees: Alex Rodriguez Lifts Boston Past New York

Matt BreenCorrespondent IAugust 27, 2008

Three-time MVP and all-around "might be best player once its all said," Alex Rodriguez, sucked last night and was booed hardcore by the New York faithful. While A-Rod is pretty much the man, he was terrible last night, posting the beautiful line of: 0-for-5, 2 K, 2 GIDP(one with bases loaded), and 7 LOB. Don't forget his error, either.

Although A-Rod sucked, I've got to give some serious credit to Justin Masterson, who is too legit to quit. The guy has come out of Pawtucket and done everything asked of him, switching to the bullpen seamlessly. He's pretty much the anti-Buchholz right now.

But getting back to A-Rod, seriously, Yankees, if you don't want him, I'd love to see him in Boston. And I'm sure he's OK, he probably slept on some nice stripper breasts last night.

Wakefield had a very Dice-K-like night, going five innings and securing the win, which is more than I expected from his elderly ass.

The Red Sox are either close or have already picked up Kotsay from the ATL today, which is good news. Safer than trading for Gary Sheffield and signing Barry "Bail" Bonds, they played it safe and got a guy who kills Fenway Park to pick up for J.D. Drew's frail self.

In other good news, Beckett will be back Friday. If Beckett is healthy, the Red Sox should be OK, as he is godly in postseason play. I don't care if he sucks from this point until the playoffs, because you know he will be lights out like always in the playoffs.

Tonight is the battle of two of my least favorite, ugliest pitchers in baseball: HGH, born-again Christian, battling porn addiction Paul Byrd vs. "Fat kid" Sid "I ain't drunk" Ponson. I pick the porn star, Paul Byrd over the bloated and fiending Ponson.

One last thing, isn't it great the Red Sox are erasing New York from the playoff picture> I mean, I'm over the whole "Yankees Suck" thing, but it's still pretty cool. Peace NY!
