To give you an idea of how certain I am that the Red Sox are only beginning to descend into an abyss, I knew they couldn’t hold on to a 9-0 lead against the Yankees after five innings.
However, the blame cannot be laid at the door of Red Sox starter Felix Doubront. He gave up only one run (a solo homer to Mark Teixeira) on four hits in six innings pitched. The Red Sox bullpen was another story. The Yankees scored seven runs in both the seventh and eighth innings. Teixeira added another homer, Nick Swisher hit a grand slam and drove in the go ahead runs with a two run double. Swisher had 6 RBI in two innings while Eduardo Nunez went 3 for 3 in the seventh and eighth. Red Sox “closer” Alfredo Aceves did not retire a single batter.
The Yankees won 15-9. The Red Sox are 4-10 and have begun their second century at Fenway in the most inauspicious way possible.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
