Life Is Good At The Moment

By Theomnipotentq @TheMightyQuinn
The Red Sox take the series from the Yankees, 6-0.
Josh Beckett has now pitched 14 innings against New York this season, and has not allowed them an earned run. His ERA for 2011 is an astounding 1.75.
Adrian Gonzalez continued his "en fuego" act by blasting a three-run homer that iced the game in the 7th inning. He now has nine dingers on the season, and five in the last four games. Gonzalez now leads the league in RBI with 34. Dustin Pedroia added three hits and Jacoby Ellsbury drove in two runs.
The Sox are now 19-20, and trail Tampa Bay by 4 games.
And it was all bad news for the Yankees tonight. They didn't get a runner to third all night, Derek Jeter struck out to end the game, and Jorge Posada pulled a big time diva act by asking to be taken out of the game by manager Joe Girardi because Girardi had the gall to bat the worst regular batter in MLB this season in the 9th spot in the lineup. Talk about a guy who is NOT a team player at all, and begs out of a game against the club's biggest rival. Posada is going to get roasted in Sunday's NY papers.
Did I miss Jason Varitek's tantrums when Tito bats him ninth?
The Sox are now playing with the house's money, and Jon Lester pitches on Sunday night as the Red Sox go for the sweep in The House The Taxpayers Built.
