I’m still a little shell-shocked from the Red Sox’ embarassing five-game sweep at the hands of the N.Y. Yankees. Here’s a great column from the Boston Globe regarding everything that’s wrong with the Red Sox.

I’ve got a friend in New York with whom I trade baseball barbs continuously regarding the Red Sox-Yankee rivalry. I sent him an Instant Message on Friday morning predicting a five-game sweep … by the Red Sox.

How bad was this defeat? It’s been two days since the final game, and he hasn’t had the heart to call me and rub it in. That hurts.
