Roid Rage

On the plus side - Nice play by Sheffield on the carom. And good decision to go 'roidal on the fans rather than throw the ball back into the infield. Shades of Knoblauch holding the ball as he argued with the ump - #1 and #2 on my personal highlight reel. It wouldn't have been as funny if it were Giambi. I prefer Sheffield's rage suppression/explosion routine - he perfectly channels Richard Dreyfus/Daffy Duck when he does that. Also: 5 points for whoever made that woman spill her beer. ROFL.

On the minus side - Schilling and Johnson were both useless and oddly pathetic, as if the weight of this whole Rivals deal has already beaten them to a pulp. So much for my theory on the importance of the 2nd and 3rd starters. At the moment, 1-5 look more or less balanced. In that lineup yesterday, the Yankees were better than the Sox at just about every position, except maybe catcher and DH. Shouldn't they have wiped the floor with them?
