I'll blog when I get the bile out of my mouth 

I will post later today. I'm in the middle of grading, and when I don't feel like grading I find myself wondering whether I can build an extra rung lower in Hell for Larry Lucchino. You didn't come here to hear me rant about the travails of Red Sox Nation.

But I will tell you what I wrote Liz this morning: Losing Jacque Jones to the Cubs isn't that big a deal because the Twins fan doesn't see him as part of their history. He was not respected up here (me included, because I have always hated his swing -- but he plays hard.) Johnny Damon could have remained a Red Sox for life, played two years longer than he should have, and never bought a meal in New England again.

Instead, he's a Yankee.

I'll be back in a while; I need to find some flame accelerator.
