As we speak, the Yankees are getting tossed around by the Ozzie Guillen Dancers. Meanwhile, the Red Sox, jet-lagged and slack-jawed after last night’s-this morning’s game, will soon be stepping to the plate against Cy Young favorite Dan Haren.

Folks, it’s not going to be an easy one tonight. And if I doubt my own ability to stay conscious to see it to conclusion, I can only imagine how it’s gonna feel for those poor f–kers who actually gotta play the game. But I do believe in the power of Tavarez. And I have a feeling — misguided as it may be — that Jools will not let us down.
