The Boston Massacre 2006

The license plate of the truck that just ran over the Boston Red Sox read: Y-A-N-K-E-E-S.

Save for today's 2-1 win, the crucial 5-game series was a bloodbath for the Boston Red Sox. The New York Yankees dominated the entire series and now have a commanding 6.5 game lead in the American League East. Boston also fell to 4.5 games back in the wild card, for the moment.

Horrendous starting and relief pitching for the Red Sox devastated them from game one of Friday's doubleheader. Boston pitchers gave up 62 hits, walked 32 batters and allowed an amazing 49 runs; an average of 9+ runs a ball game. Numbers that don't signal the makings off a playoff-bound team.

There is nothing positive that Boston fans can take away from this series. Nothing to analyze what went wrong and how to possibly fix it. There is no break for the weary Boston pitchers, either. Boston is going to have to dig deep if it wants to have any kind of shot at the playoffs.

The Yankees have to be basking in the glow of the sweep, knowing they've driven a huge stake through the heart of Boston fans and gained a huge edge in momentum.

The Yanks are a walk to the playoffs. The Red Sox will squeak in as a wild card.

For any and all ESPN radio fans, you heard it here first. Mike Greenberg of Mike and Mike is pursuing other opportunties. It seems like every other day that someone else is filling in for Greenie.

In order for a show to work, the hosts need to be there most of the time. See Mike (no relation to the other 2 mikes) and the Maddog in NY, on WFAN NY. They are hands down the best at what they do.

Where Greenie will land is open to speculation. His dream was MNF. That seems to be on hold.

Personally I think it would be a mistake to leave. He is a young guy that has a national audience and the world at his feet. The next move should be a big move, and should come to him. Look at the dive Keith Oberlman's career has taken.
