That guy drove in 5 runs today against the Red Sox. No, that's not the infamous Mark Teixeira Face (Damn thing haunts me in my dreams on a regular basis). That right there is Francisco Cervelli. Yes, THE Francisco Cervelli. The back-up catcher that had 5 RBIs today against the Red Sox pitching staff that included Jonathan Van Every. Yes, the outfielder who was fed to the wolves last year against the Rays. Well it got so bad, 14-3 is pretty f*cking bad, that Teets had to call in the substitute sub. The worst part? Van Every gave up 2 runs in 1 inning while an actual relief pitcher, Scott Schoewnenwhatever gave up 4 in 1 2/3 innings.
Blame it on the rain, the cold, the delay, the fact that the Yankees have a lineup that can actually scare opposing pitchers while the Sox are still sending out Darnell McDonald and Bill Hall on a regular basis, blame whatever you want and call it whatever you want, but what it was was the 2nd straight b*tch slap to our guys in our house. If the Sox had girlfriends, they would be going home with the likes of guys named Cervelli and Randy Winn and Ramiro Pena. Come on, I don't want to lose my wife to a guy named Ramiro again.
