Derek, Bobby, Johnny and Theo

No one wants to hear a Yankee fan gloat but that was some playoff opener. Five hits for Derek Jeter, two run-scoring smashes by Bobby Abreu and another decent outing by Chen Ming King of Taiwan Wang. The Red Sox, meanwhile, lost the pennant the day Johnny Damon signed with the Yankees. Who cares if Damon can't pronounce "Bobby Abreu"? The Sox are sprinting backward, thanks to a terrible job by Theo Epstein after the championship year. Injuries mounted, yes, but he had no one ready to step in. We like winning easily; it's so much less stressful...
