Calm Down, Junkee Fans

So as always, Junkee fans get all horny that their team is hot, and having surpassed Boston in the standings, they told the Red Sox to have a nice life.

Not so fast.

The Red Sox win, the Junkees lose, and all of a sudden, they're tied. And as it stands, the loser would go home, as there would be no wild card for the AL East runner up to fall back on.

Admittedly, I'd give the advantage to the Junkees. Yes, I know that the BoSox are really good at home, and after Sunday, their remaining games are at Fenway Park, whereas the Junkees play in Baltimore and then Boston. Still, the way the O's have been reeling, Old York has a better chance of knocking them off than Boston does of Toronto, who can be pesky at times.

And the weekend showdown can go either way, so for me to be really confident, the Sox have to win all their games until then, hope the Junkees lose a couple, and then I'll be okay.

Speaking of okay, that is not how Jaret Wright has been, as he continues to be this year's Kevin Brown. He's stunk up the joint, and the fact that the Junkees leave him in the rotation to justify his $21 million salary is just gleeful.

Robinson Cano continues bungling the plays, and more often than not it costs his team. Let the good times roll. And the Juiceman Giambi was back to April form with 6 left on base, including his bases loaded strikeout in the eighth.

Manny Ortiz wrote about the Red Sox, and their ability to turn in on when they have to. Let's hope that they've done just that.

How low is GiamBALCO's "Vitamin Supply?"

I don't know, why don't you ask the source, Derek Jeter?

Cano's been hitting pretty well this month though. Not enough to make up for his mediocre season after so much hype, but he's been contributing at least at bat.

Go Sox!

And how about Shemp Matsu-E looking like a Stooge out there yesterday? He's been bungling quite a few lately.
