Holy Crap, it's been a week?

I can't believe it's been a week since I checked in. Here's the quick update. The Red Sox have struggled a bit, dropping 3 out of 4 against the Twins and then being swept in a 2 game series against the Orioles. Amazingly enough, the Tampa Bay Rays lead the A.L East, and the season is a quarter way done, so while it certainly isn't even close to reflective of the end results, it still is impressive for Tampa Bay to be in that spot with a 43 million dollar payroll, 29th in baseball. That means they lead both the evil empire (NY Yankees for newcomers) who spends more than anyone (207 million, for the last place team in the A.L. East. ) The Rays also lead my boys from Boston, the Red Sox, currently the wild card leader and 1 game behind Tampa in the standings. To be fair, Boston has the 4th highest payroll in baseball at 133 million, certainly nothing like the empires obese payroll, but still quite a bit.

Definitely glad it's Friday, the beginning of the weekend. Ah, sweetness. Currently watching Battlestar Galactica, the first of 2 viewings, since I'm taping it for watching with the wife.

The Yankees losing their 2 top and most irreplaceable players at the same time couldn't have much of an impact, could it?

You took off 7 days, and that's all you got?

Weak, dude, weak.
