Its not over yet, but if you are a fan of the Detroit Tigers, it looks really, really bad. We said earlier on the week that the big series between the Tribe and the Tigers could decide if the Tigers would vault back in the race, or be buried completely. After taking the first two in the series, the Indians give the ball (and a shovel) to Carsten Charles with a chance for a sweep.
By the way, we believe we were the first ones to predict the classic Red Sox choke job that is currently taking place in the East. We realize that it does not exactly take Nostradamus to predict a Boston choke, but we were the first to make that prediction this year, so we’re taking credit.

Just so we can be the first to say this, and a few months from now when we can gloat and say those immortal words: “you heard it here first!” let us go on the record with the following proclamation:
The Boston Red Sox will not win the AL East division. The New York Yankees will.
We have seen collapses like this happen so many times before it is almost eerie.
We came to this conclusion the last two nights, when we saw the Red Sox alleged “ace” crap the bed against a barely .500 NL team.
(Quick Aside – Wednesday, in attempt to solidify himself as the most lampooned baseball analyst employed in these United States, John Kruk was interviewed on SportsCenter and asked – “if you could have any pitcher in the American League pitch one game for you, and your life is on the line, who would it be?” to which that moron replied “Curt Schilling.” A) I know that Schilling and Kruk were teammates at one time, so he may be a little biased. B) Lets hope, for Kruk’s sake, that the opponent in that game to save his life isn’t the mighty Colorado Rockies. C) We are going to list some AL pitchers. If we come to one that you think Curt Schilling is better than, right now, please stop us: Sabathia, Santana, Lackey, Beckett, Pettite, Haren, Verlander, and Bonderman. And on most days, Buehrle, Carmona, Wang, and Gaudin. Seriously, do some research Kruk.)
Anyway, this is the conclusion we have resigned ourselves to. So when it happens, we told you so.
And if you have come for your weekly dose of T&A to send you off to the weekend, here, courtesy of Our Book of Scrap, is a picture of the ridiculous wife of Aaron Boone.
A journeyman, fringe Major Leaguer pulled this chick. Doesn’t that just stick in your craw?
