They are the bright shining light this summer not yet letting us down.
The exploits of the Red Sox have given us hope and confidence that goes way beyond the bummer tendencies of the stock market and the financial world.
The winning Red Sox are a wonderful, splendid distraction during this summer of economic folly and discontent. The team is battling the Yankees for first place in the American League East and almost assured of a playoff spot and the chance at winning their third World Series title of this century.
If only our politicians in Washington had a starting lineup like the Red Sox!
