And the counter returns to zero

1) With 71 games left for the Sox, and 72 for the Yankees, both teams face the same prospect down the stretch: lose fewer games than the other. Both teams currently have 41 losses, with the (h)Os at 42, and only one game seperates the three teams. Well, this should be fun. The Sox have dropped 6 of 8 against their two pursuers, officially wasting a golden opportunity to bury the two teams and instead made a race of it. Sigh. Of those games, at least two should have been wins if we had a bullpen that didn't suck. Regardless, I still can't believe that Al Leiter will be the savior for the Yanks, even if he did totally screw the Sox last night (how the hell did that happen?). I also don't believe that the Orioles can survive with the pitching they have. However, I have finally started to get a little uncomfortable with the Sox. They just can't seem to put anyone away that plays in the AL east this year, as is evidenced by their 18-24 record against the division. Hopefully, they can destroy Kazmir tonight and sweep the hapless Devil Rays. Of course, now that I've typed that, there is a good possibility that they get swept. Crap.

2) I'm too befuddled to write anything else. Go away.

McMuffin,
I may not follow such a bad team like the Orioles, but I do know a thing or two about men. I intend to find a good looking public defender today and romance the crap out of him. Thank you!

Rummors Mills Corner:
The Orioles jumped ahead of the Boston Red Sox, according to The Sun, because of their willingness to take on Lowell, who has two years and about $20 million left on his contract. The Red Sox have reportedly offered Bronson Arroyo and prospects.

The possible Burnett deal also was reported in South Florida, with the Palm Beach Post weighing in and saying that "a multiplayer deal with the Orioles would be the Marlins' preference if the Orioles agree to take Lowell. Boston has offered a package that includes right-hander Bronson Arroyo. But 'that could change with a phone call,' according to a source who said about four other teams are interested."

One rumor that wouldn't die Monday was one originally reported Sunday that had Florida, Boston and San Diego getting together for a deal that would have Burnett and Lowell end up in Boston with Sean Burroughs and Arroyo going to Florida.

Theo Needs to put down the crack pipe.
