Yankee Poodle Dandy

They are aging, addled and toothless. And now the Yankees have a DH controversy. Jorge Posada pulled himself out of the lineup one hour before game-time, after learning he was batting 9th. The cover story that emerged later was that he had a bad back. Right.

Anyway, the Red Sox took Game 2 of the series 6-0, with Josh Beckett hurling 6 shutout innings and fanning 9. Adrian Gonzalez hit his sixth HR in 6 games, launching a 3-run shot to RF off a lefty (some fat guy who really stunk tonight). That made it 6-0 and the Bronx faithful headed for the subway. Lester has a chance to bring the team to .500 for the first time tomorrow night.
