Red Sox: Lost Weekend

Red Sox: Lost Weekend

Sippin’ on coke and rum, I’m like so what I’m drunk.  It’s the freakin’ weekend baby, I’m about to have me some fun.  -R. Kelly

Public Service Announcement:  Ok, here we go!  Like my main man Bart Simpson always says, “Ay caramba!”  I didn’t see this one coming.  Not in any shape or form did I see this one coming.  A sweep at the hands of the Yankees?  Nope, did not see it coming.  Not even a little bit.   

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.  I meant what I said and I said what I meant.  An Elephant’s faithful, 100%.  I meant it when I said the Red Sox are better than the Yankees.  I still say it and I still mean it.  But they weren’t better this weekend. 

This weekend, the mighty mighty Red Sox extended their scoreless streak to 31 innings.  31 innings!  Yikes!  The Red Sox extended their scoreless streak to 31 innings before Victor Martinez’s two-run bomb off Phil Coke ended it on Sunday night.  Hooray Victor Martinez!  It was the most consecutive scoreless innings within one series that the Red Sox had ever experienced at the hands of the Yankees.  You can’t expect to win like that.

You can’t win when you let A-Broad reinvent himself either.  On Friday night, Alex Rodriguez’ 15th-inning jack broke up a scoreless tie to beat my beloved Red Sox.  Last night, he broke another scoreless tie with a seventh-inning jack and the Yankees went on to a 5-2 victory.  Go back, Jack, do it again.  Wheels turn round and round.  Say what you want about A-Broad, Lord knows I do, but get this:  The man so often derided, even by Yankees fans, for not being clutch, became the first player in major league history to snap scoreless ties by going yard in the seventh inning or later twice in one series.  How about that?

How about this?  A-Broad ain’t the only one who made history this weekend.  Old friend Johnny Damon and the one who got away, Mark Teixeira, made some history of their own.  Last night, Damon and Teixeira hit consecutive bombs in the eighth inning.  You saw them.  You saw Damon’s game tying bomb and Teixeira’s winner winner chicken dinner.  Back-to-back, Jack.

If you did see them, you saw them go back-to-back for the sixth time this season.  You saw them set a Yankees’ single-season record for back-to-back jacks.  You saw them break the record shared by Gary Sheffield and Alex Rodriguez, Lou Gehrig and Joe DiMaggio, and Gehrig and Babe  Ruth.  Just so you know, the M&M BoysMickey Mantle and Roger Maris went back-to-back only four times in 1961.

Shake it off Red Sox fans.  Fear thee not.  This thing ain’t over.  Not by a long shot.  Just chalk it up as another lost weekend.

Peace out homies. Six two and Even!
