Interleague play is like a Jason Mraz concert your girlfriend drags you to; as soon as it starts, you eagerly await its ending. And now that it’s finally over for the balance of the regular season, we can turn our attention to other matters. Like, for instance, the teams in our own bloody division. Tonight, it’s the penthouse versus the outhouse as the Sox take on the Orioles at scenic Camden Yards. And as much as we like to preach about how you’ve got to respect every team, no matter their record, these are the guys we need to be mashing to a fine paste. So let’s hope that even as I type this, Francona is leading Ortiz around the clubhouse with a Brian Roberts uniform dipped in beef gravy. Just to set the mood, as they say.
