Who are those guys??

The “Red-hot Birds”? Who are those guys? No reason to ask that of the first-place Rays. We knew they would be tough. Who are the Red Sox? The “reeling” or “frustrated” Red Sox? “Are the Red Sox Done?” asks the Boston Globe. Who are we with two outfielders on the bench? Who are we with 18 different line-ups in 25 games? We are the team in May still playing like April. Messieurs Silva and Finn of the Globe have a deadline of the end of May for us to really know if the Sox are truly in contention in the AL East. This May may be a quick month. Let’s hope for the kind of month that goes by so quickly because we are giddy with victories that appear effortless, without the howls of pain and frustration like the one we heard from Big Papi yesterday after he fouled off a pitch he wanted to send into the brick of Camden Yards’ warehouse. Now we are back home, with Butch on the mound against the Angels. I promise I am not thinking about another pitcher’s blown save from sometime last fall, one that echoed all winter and then again yesterday. I am only thinking about gunshot wounds fired by the stud on the mound tonight. SEE, HE’S SMILING. And so shall we.
