A couple of thoughts...

- Another night, another walkoff win. This is almost becoming routine...

The change from the usual script was that the Sox player providing the heroics was not David Ortiz, but Mark Loretta. Loretta hit a bases loaded double with two outs in the 9th after a complete meltdown by the Indians 22-year-old closer, Fausto Carmona. After striking out the first two batters, Carmona totally lost his composure, hitting Mirabelli and Gonzalez, then walking Youkilis. Then Loretta hit the double, leaving Papi in the on deck circle. It was a great win for the Sox, who were in danger of falling out of the virtual tie for first place they are in with the Yankees.

- The Cubs are playing Arizona in a good, old-fashioned single-admission doubleheader at Wrigley Field today. If sitting at Wrigley for 7 hours or so watching baseball and drinking Old Style isn't a little piece of heaven, I don't know what is.
