What a beautifully nasty night in the Bronx. A-Rod’s MVP march continues. Homers from both sides of the plate for Jorge. (And you thought he was wearing down? Turns out he’s just getting started.) Sheff’s wrist seems okay enough. Moose goes 7 strong, with 6 ks and 0 bbs. Things went so well the boys even threw a couple of gimmes to their ex-mates, Rondell and Marcus. Meanwhile, the Sox took a plunge in Canada, and by now have all but lost their massive lead in the standings. By week’s end, we hope to have them in our rearview, and permanently. Which means no division crown. Which means, as Murray Chass has so intelligently noted, the Sox season will be a failure, no matter its final outcome. Whoopeee!
PS: A note to all comers: Don’t eff with Paulie Q.
