Ho Hom, Another Day, Another Red Sox Win!

Hmm, a day ending in Y and the Red Sox win... again. Today it was Asian sensation Dice-K, (not to be confused with that bum from the Bronx, Special-K). Dice-K moves to 8-0 now for the Sox.

The Sox have just completed a 7 game home stand sweep, after dropping 4 in a row. That's called rebounding from a hiccup in the road. A brief look at the last week:

The win streak began with a win by Dice-K, a 5-3 win over Milwaukee. Next up was a come from behind win in which young reliever Craig Hansen picked up the win, 7-6 over the Brew Crew. Following were 2 more wins, reliable Josh Beckett and then wunderkid Jon Lester in his shutout performance (7-0) Mon night. What gets really interesting then is spot starter Justin Masterson , a double A call up who beat KC 2-1, and then the next day ex Cy-Young winner Bartolo Colon begins rewarding the REd Sox Gamble on him by pitching his first win in a few seasons. Finally, Dice K wins again today to put a nice bow on it.

Meanwhile, the evil empire finally won again last night, improving(?) their record to 21-25. Woo-hoo. And for good buddy Woody, who loves the Runs Scored/Runs against ratio, the Yankees carry a -20, 189/209. Oh happy day.

Yankees just cut that in half. Oh, and the Bosox lost last night, for those keeping score at home.
