Your omniscient author in absentia:
Sorry, I've started 3 different strips this morning and they've all 3 fallen flat and been unsuitable for putting in front of you. I can't even come up with anything for Lisa the Temp. So I'm going to sit today out.
Here's to hoping the Sox can make hay during this upcoming "cushy" stretch of the schedule.
Themes of the false starts:
- Discussion of the lack of win streak longer than 5 games.
- Discussion of how much (if not all) of the angst is due it being the hated Yankees who are so hot right now, i.e., if it were Toronto chipping at the 6 game lead we'd all be a lot more confident.
- Discussion of how the Sox actually match up quite good against the Yankees regardless of how hot the Yanks have been, i.e., The Red Sox offense is built around drawing walks, driving up the pitch count, and getting into an opponent's bullpen, and the Yankees' bullpen is their weak point.
