Faced with a sub-.500 team, Beth resorts to other means to enjoy games, such as Entertainment Value Above Replacement:

As an example of this metric in action, Dustin Pedroia's epic at-bat on Monday night gave him a high EVAR, regardless of whether it led to a win.

Today on "What Can We Make Heidi Eat?" the NESN stadium reporter was pushed in front of some garlic fries and a chocolate-cherry shake in Anaheim. Unlike in Texas, where she was ordered to eat a four-pound pretzel, Watney took only a nibble of one fry and what looked like maybe a teaspoon of the shake.

She also denied, again, that she was gagging... Read more

Ben Buchanan acknowledges a Sox win is a Sox win, but isn't too happy with the catching situation.

Ted Grevelis notes the amazing stats of the starting pitches over the past seven days (1.80 ERA or better); wonders when the non-Pedroia, non-Lowrie parts of the lineup will start hitting better.... Read more

The Massachusetts Appeals Court ruled Friday that Jordan's Furniture's annual Red Sox contest isn't a lottery because nobody pays money specifically to enter it.

For the past several years, the furniture chain has reimbursed people who buy furniture during a set period if the Red Sox do something in particular - at first, win the World Series, but more recently, hit a sign in the... Read more

Joanna notes:

Don Orsillo was attired in an academic tweed jacket accented by a professorial paisley tie. Appropriate, because the Red Sox were schooled by the Rays in a 16-5 blowout.

And Papelbon, too?

The Boston Licensing Board voted today to let the Red Sox begin sales of mixed drinks to the common people at Fenway Park, approving a plan under which five existing beer booths will be outfitted to serve dilute mixed drinks - with no more than an ounce of hard liquor on them.

The Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission, like the Boston Licensing Board a state... Read more

Walked into the West Roxbury Panera to discover they have a weekly singalong for the under-3 set every Thursday. For some reason, one of the songs the guitarist chose was "Take Me Out to the Ballgame," whose lyrics he modified slightly:
