The fact that what was shaping up to be one of the feel good wins of the year turned into a ball-busting loss at the hands of the Yanks is bad enough. That it turned on a dramatic, two-outs, two-strikes home run in the top of the ninth by A-Rod off the Papel-Bot? Christ, why not just have George Steinbrenner jam the airwaves to broadcast video of his naked ass with “How Ya Like Us Now, Boston?” scrawled across it in red lipstick?

I mean, seriously.
