Oh, and the Sox are leading 4-1 after 6 innings - they very well may sweep the Yankees to go 10-0 out of their last ten. And it doesn't look like letting Manny go has hurt:
During the Red Sox current 9-game winning streak they have a team OPS of 1.025. That's the same OPS Manny Ramirez has for the season.And maybe it's just me, but it seems like everyone is faster on the basepaths without Manny dogging it. Even Ortiz seems to have some pep.
Looking like a good season, yessir.
