Specifically, in not finding the nearest dumpster and tossing a certain Globe columnist into it headfirst after said columnist (one guess which one) accused him of taking steroids because, after all, he's old and Dominican (yes, he went there). Not linking to the column because I don't feel like giving him my two cents worth of Web traffic, but it should be easy enough to find for anybody who can log into bostonglobe.com.

Later, Neil Diamond took the field to lead the singing of "Sweet Caroline."

Don't even think of complaining to the FCC. FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski tweeted after the game:

David Ortiz spoke from the heart at today's Red Sox game. I stand with Big Papi and the people of Boston.

Remember when you'd get so frenzied to buy Red Sox tickets you'd open up two or three browsers on two or three different computers and then you'd sit there for hours and finally you'd get in and all that was left were tickets to some Royals game in August?

You'd almost think Cody Ross and Will Middlebrooks pissed on home plate at Fenway or something last night. Both were watching the Yankees/Tigers game and both tweeted their amazement/admiration for Raul Ibanez's ninth-inning home run.

And parts of Red Sox Nation lost their collective mind.

Last night, Ross tweeted, simply:

Ibañez!

Middlebrooks was even more effusive:

This is simply insane... #raul

Raul Ibanez is the St Louis Cardinals funneled into one man.

Plaintiff was seated in a metal folding chair provided by Defendants.

Over the Monster explains why last night's Sox game was, all in all, decent, except for Lester getting the loss instead of, say, Aceves or Padilla.

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 far.

The 1962 Mets were one of the worst teams in the history of baseball. The 2011 Red Sox suffered the worst collapse in the history of baseball. How will the 2012 Red Sox stack up against the September records of these two teams? We'll compile the daily "standings" from here through Sept. 30:
