The New York Times introduces us to Lobsang Sangay with a profile that starts with him reminiscing about game 7 of the 2003 ALCS - and the lessons he took away from Grady Little's decision to leave Martinez in the game:

Behind his desk, a magnificent life-size, silk-draped photograph of the Dalai Lama hangs from the wall, and outside his window, the Himalayas rise

He has no time to wait around for ball 4. Meanwhile, last night up in the broadcast booth, the boys spent a good part of the early innings discussing Jerry Remy's socks. Complete with close ups of said socks (and his loafers).

Suck it, Shank.

Dan Shaughnessy had his yearly Ortiz hategasm today, erupting in a paroxysm of disgust for the player whose fundamental evil for some reason only he is able to recognize. But he was apparently a paragraph short in his recounting of every last horrible thing David Ortiz has ever done, so he threw this in at the end:

Last, and least, the rules

Paul Weiskel reports:

Red Sox fans just started chanting "Yankees suck!" as Joba Chamberlain started warming up for the Tigers. Classic Fenway.

Some people want to crucify some bandits who managed to get into the Marathon despite the extra security. Other people want to crucify the smug bastard who stole the baseball being tossed to a little kid at Fenway.

Helicopter over Fenway

As today's game approached, a teacher at the kidlet's school opened a window so the kids could better hear the flyover at nearby Fenway Parik.

Only they didn't hear anything - because unlike in years past, this year's flyover consisted of a Coast Guard helicopter, captured here by Brian D'Amico.

The Red Sox go before the Boston Licensing Board this week for permission to add cans to their repertoire of beer options at the lyric little bandbox this season.

In December, the board approved a Sox request to start selling beer in aluminum bottles - after Fenway officials assure the board that the bottles would be opened first and that, even if they were... Read more

You can date a Red Sox player, or you can stand on the sidelines during games, but not both.

Bryan Joiner makes the case that it's time we stop honoring an unrepentant racist.

Remy, of course, you know about. The Globe reports sideliner Dell, though, won't be talking over on-field action anymore. NESN, of course, won't say if that's because her boyfriend is Will Middlebrooks.

Red Sox officials say they want to add three more places to buy hard liquor, add sales of beer in bottles and extend alcohol sales on Yawkey Way as a way to reduce crowding in the stadium during Red Sox games and other events at Fenway Park.

At a hearing before the Boston Licensing Board this morning, Dennis Quilty, the team's licensing attorney, and Lawrence... Read more

The Red Sox want to expand the number of stands inside Fenway Park that can serve up hard liquor - and to extend beer sales at games that run long.

The team is scheduled to appear before the Boston Licensing Board on Wednesday to seek several amendments in its current liquor license for Fenway and Yawkey Way.

The Sox want to increase the number of... Read more
