Go ahead, find a scalper in Kenmore Square tonight and point at him and laugh hysterically. Just be sure you can run fast; he might not appreciate the humor of the situation.

How bad is it? Scott Thorn tweets:

I've had an ad up on Craigslist all morning for 3 tix to Thursday night's Sox-Yanks game at face value. Not one email so

Where have we heard that before?

Joy of Sox is no longer getting much joy from Sox games - and not just because of what's going on on the field:

NESN gives us worthless "tours" of concrete hallways in other stadiums and asinine non-baseball segments. Worse than that, the network often fails to show the action on the field.

Announcers Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy have become sad parodies of

Comcast Sportsnet reports on the grim scene in the clubhouse last night after yet another stupid loss:

Lackey was so busted up after the latest defeat that he was strutting around the clubhouse with a can of Bud Light in each hand, or what is known as "double-fisting" on every college campus in the history of mankind.

Kevin Youkilis addresses Red Sox fans.

That final game at Fenway was the most emotional day of my life on the baseball field. It could not have been scripted any better. And to all those kids out there in Red Sox Nation, I can give you my Dad’s advice. "Life is like a throw to first base, always aim high."
