You won't hear as much from me as you normally might during a five-game Red Sox-Yankees series. We're off to Vermont for a week starting tomorrow morning and we have decided to disconnect from the net while we are away. No laptop, although we are toting along two cell phones, three iPods, two GameBoys and a portable DVD player. So it's not like we'll be totally rustic!

The Sox fared badly in game 1 of today's doubleheader, as they lost 12-4. With Jason Johnson pitching I was pretty much conceding the game anyways, and unfortunately Johnson didn't exceed my expectations. The nightcap is going somewhat better as the Sox lead 10-7 in the 6th. This is an incredibly long game; we're closing in on three hours at this point with one out in the 6th. The surprise hero for the Sox, so far, is Julian Tavarez, who has pitched 2.1 scoreless innings in relief of Jon Lester, who gave up seven runs in less than four innings.

We don't really have any scheduled events in Vermont except for a Lake Monsters game (the Nationals NY-Penn League affiliate) on Tuesday, although there are lots of things we want to do.

So have a great week, and I'll let you know about our vacation when we get back!
