A Sweeping Lowe Scoring Affair

D-Lowe Steals the Show as Sox Win Ninth in a Row
and Hang Tough in 4-3 Win

"This is a special run that we are going on, especially the time of year, we are getting clutch hits, the defense was phenomenal. We're having fun." -- Derek Lowe


Bill Mueller goes deep and gives more solid D. "Great catch" Dave Roberts doubles fest and Cabby, Bellhorn continues scrappy hitting work. Tek is king of L.O.B. but keeps hitting streak in tact. Foulke and Myers lock it down. Sink or Sveum added another scalp to his belt as Ortizzle is out with bum shoulder from slide.

Even Former Texas Rangers Owner Gets Behind America's Team While Nation Calls for Perfect End to Homestand

"Something really important happened last night... The Red Sox pulled to 2-1/2 games out of the Yankees!" -- 9.3.04 John F. Kerry

"You probably didn't catch this, but the Jackass Junior Senator from Massachusetts in a speech he's giving at a rally in Ohio just told the crowd that he was really happy because the Red Sox just closed to within 2-1/2 games of the Yankees tonight. Some Boston fan, he doesn't even know what's really going on with the Sox, but claims to be a big fan. I guarantee a real Sox fan knows what the Yankees did tonight just as well as they know what the Sox did. That's almost as embarrassing as Ted Kennedy's pronunciation of "Mike" McGwire and Sammy "Sooser's" names a few years ago. How can they be senators from Massachusetts and be so baseball ignorant?"
-- Jonathan Jackson

"Let me now address those you of you who will say that my twisted logic holds no water. That John Kerry is supposedly the Red Sox fan (albeit one who once described his favorite Sox player as Eddie Yost, who spent the greater part of his career with the Washington Senators but never played for the Red Sox), so as goes his faltering campaign, so should go the Sawx. That the Sox are owned by Hollywood libs who date the likes of Katie Couric. That it is Sox fans - the voters of Massachusetts - who gave John Kerry the national platform in the first place. That angry Sox fans are a perfect analog to the angry disaffected liberals filling the streets of New York this week. That, as Rudy claimed Monday night, the GOP is the N.Y. Yankees of American politics. To you I say this: butt out." -- Shannen W. Coffin, National Review
