Yankees 5-Game Sweep of BoSox Starts in Just 50 Minutes!!
That will put Boston 6.5 games out of first place, and possibly out of the wild card.

2. Boston massacre!
I believe I heard that the last time the Yanks swept a five-game series on the road was back in the 1940s....

Unbelievable!

4. Meanwhile the Toronto Blue Jays continue their clubhouse love-fest
Gibbons, Lilly scuffle near Blue Jays dugout

TORONTO (AP) -- John Gibbons and Ted Lilly exchanged words on the mound during a pitching change.

A few minutes later, the conversation between the Toronto Blue Jays manager and pitcher turned physical.

Gibbons wound up with a bloody nose after scrapping with Lilly near Toronto's dugout in the third inning of the Oakland Athletics' 12-10 victory Monday night.

snip


Canadian Press photographer Aaron Harris, one of a handful of photographers to witness the skirmish, said Lilly was waiting for Gibbons in the tunnel leading to the clubhouse.

"Gibbons just went at him," Harris said. "It looked like Gibbons grabbed him and they disappeared. Then the whole dugout emptied back there. It was mayhem down in the tunnel."

snip

In July, Gibbons challenged Shea Hillenbrand to a fight after the infielder wrote on the clubhouse bulletin board that the "ship was sinking." Hillenbrand declined to fight, and was later traded to San Francisco.



Sounds as if both Lilly and Gibbons should enroll in some anger management classes.

7. That was truly a thing of beauty.
While I still hope the Yankees win it all, it won't pain me if they don't, for the five-game sweep of the Red Sox at Fenway in August during an originally close race was equally as sweet as a world championship.
