10:42 am - So sick of it all
Just so tired of it all, thank god for my son and daughter. Sick of the whole shit of being alone, sick of not having a job, sick of not having my own car, sick of my parents shit. I just want everything to be better. I'm tired of being depressed and feeling like that I'm going through all this alone.

BOSTON -- The Yankees' best offensive game in more than two years began with another leadoff hit for Derek Jeter. It ended with four runs in the ninth inning.
Run To The Top
Friday's game between the Red Sox and Yankees featured the highest combined score between the two teams in the history of the classic rivalry.
|Friday||31||Yankees 20, Red Sox 11|
|July 1903||29||Highlanders 15, Americans 14|

Slugging from start to finish, New York beat the Boston Red Sox by a seemingly comfortable 20-11 margin on Friday night. But with the short Green Monster in left field and the Red Sox mounting comeback after comeback, the Yankees were relieved to take the opener of the three-game series.
"That was an uncomfortable 20 to whatever it was game," Jeter said, "because you get a couple of guys on base [and] you pepper that wall and it could be a whole new game."
Yankees manager Joe Girardi wasn't taking anything for granted, even after Hideki Matsui homered twice and drove in a career-high seven runs, Alex Rodriguez went 4-for-4 and Jeter went 3-for-6, actually lowering his batting average over an 11-game stretch to .543 (25-for-46). New York also led 12-1 after 4 1/2 innings.
But Jason Varitek and Mike Lowell homered in Boston's four-run ninth.
"When we ended the ninth," Girardi said, "I felt pretty good."
New York's 20 runs and 23 hits were its most since it had 21 runs and 25 hits against Tampa Bay on July 22, 2007. The 20 runs also were the most allowed by the Red Sox since the Yankees scored 22 on June 19, 2000, at Fenway Park.
This year, the Red Sox had won the first eight games between the rivals before the Yankees swept a four-game series at home from Aug. 6-9. None of that mattered Friday night.
"If you're carrying games that happen in April and May around and, what are we, in August right now, you're not going to be a very good team," Jeter said.
The Yankees' latest offensive outburst extended their winning streak to three and gave them a 7 1/2-game lead over Boston in the AL East.
The 31 runs were the most scored in a game between the two franchises, surpassing the New York Highlanders' 15-14 win over the Boston Americans on July 29, 1903, in Boston.
• The Yankees established season highs in runs (20) and hits (23). Both were the most for New York since July 22, 2007. It's the fifth time this decade the Yankees scored 20 runs.
• Derek Jeter had three hits and is hitting .543 (13 for 25) on the Yankees' eight-game road trip.
• Andy Pettitte got the win -- his 10th of the season. It's his 12th season of double-digit wins for the Yankees and is one short of the team record (Whitey Ford -- 13).
• The Yankees are 26-8 since the All-Star break, tied for the second best 34-game post-break start in the last 50 years.
• Boston has lost five straight against the New York after winning the first eight of the season series.
-- ESPN Stats & Information
"They've got a lot of really good hitters over there," Girardi said. "So you want to keep tacking on the runs."
It helped that the Yankees were facing Brad Penny (7-8), who allowed eight runs and 10 hits in four-plus innings and is 1-6 in his last 11 starts.
"They have a great team," Penny said. "One through nine, all can do damage. It's one of the better hitting teams you'll face in the league."
New York has been rolling against all opponents with a 15-3 record in its last 18 games. Boston began a 10-game homestand after winning its previous three games in Toronto.
That momentum didn't last.
The Yankees scored two runs in the first inning, four in the second, six in the fifth, three in the sixth, one in the seventh and four in the ninth.
"It's plain and simple that we got our [butts] kicked pretty good," Lowell said.
Matsui hit three-run homers in the fifth and ninth, giving him 21 for the year, and drove in a run with a groundout in the seventh. He is batting .366 (15-for-41) with two homers and 10 RBIs against the Red Sox this season.
"We lost three games in a row twice here this season," Matsui said through a translator. "In that sense, it was very important for us to set the tone."
Rodriguez emerged from a 5-for-25 slump. Mark Teixeira and Melky Cabrera had three hits apiece and Teixeira drove in three runs. Jeter had his fourth three-hit performance in the last five games.
"He's probably as hot right now as I've ever seen him," Andy Pettitte said.
The Yankees led 12-1 before the Red Sox scored three in the bottom of the fifth off Pettitte (10-6).
Jeter doubled in the first, the fourth time in five games he led off a game with a hit. Teixeira walked, Rodriguez singled and Jorge Posada hit a two-run single.
There was one downside to the inning when Johnny Damon fouled a ball off his right knee, then struck out and left the game in the bottom half with a bruised knee. Girardi said he's day to day.
Eric Hinske, Damon's replacement in left field, doubled in a run in the second before a two-run double by Teixeira and an RBI single by Rodriguez.
Michael Bowden relieved Penny with two on in the fifth and Matsui hit his second pitch for his first homer. A run-scoring double by Robinson Cano and RBI singles by Cabrera and Teixeira made it 12-1.
The long inning may have affected Pettitte, who had allowed just one hit through four innings. In the fifth, Jacoby Ellsbury singled in two runs and Dustin Pedroia doubled in another. But the Yankees got those three runs right back in the sixth on Cabrera's run-scoring double and Jeter's two-run single.
Ellsbury swiped a base to tie the Red Sox record of 54 steals set by Tommy Harper in 1973. ... The Yankees broke a seven-game losing streak at Fenway Park. ... New York activated LHP Damaso Marte from the 60-day disabled list and optioned 3B Ramiro Pena to Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes Barre. ... The Red Sox activated Rocco Baldelli from the disabled list, called up Bowden from Triple-A Pawtucket, optioned OF Brian Anderson to Pawtucket and designated RHP Fernando Cabrera for assignment. ... New York's Nick Swisher reached for the 29th straight game, the longest current streak in the majors.

09:30 am - Sox win third straight, sweep Jays by winning 8-1 in finale of 3-game series (hell yeah!)
Drew, Lester lead Red Sox past Blue Jays
TORONTO (AP) With J.D. Drew rested and refreshed, the Boston Red Sox are on a roll.
Drew homered twice, Jon Lester pitched eight strong innings and the Red Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays 8-1 on Thursday night to complete a three-game sweep.
Victor Martinez connected for the second straight game for the Red Sox, who have hit two or more homers in six consecutive games, nine of 10 and 15 of 19.
"It seems like when one guy gets hot, a lot of guys get hot," Drew said. "The key is to try and keep going as a team, get quality at-bats, getting guys in in key situations."
The Red Sox have 33 homers in August, two shy of the team record for that month set in 2006. The AL wild card leaders have 10 games remaining this month, including a pivotal series this weekend against the East-leading New York Yankees at Fenway Park.
"We're excited," second baseman Dustin Pedroia said. "They beat up on us pretty good at their place (in a four-game sweep earlier this month). We're going to come out and hopefully play a lot better than we did at their place."
Hampered by a sore groin, Drew did not play Saturday and Sunday as the Red Sox lost twice in Texas, briefly dropping behind the Rangers in the wild card. Boston was off Monday, giving Drew a three-day breather.
"I needed a chance for my groin to catch up and it worked out that I had a couple of days with the day off," Drew said. "Definitely, when I came back and started playing, I felt a heck of a lot better than I did going into it."
Manager Terry Francona knows how valuable a healthy Drew can be.
"We recognize that we are a different team when he's able to go out there and be healthy and play like he can," Francona said. "Sometimes you suck it up for a day or two to try and get a guy going more at full speed."
Drew hit a leadoff homer to right in the second, a two-run drive to almost the same spot in the third and finished with four hits. The homers, Nos. 14 and 15, came off rookie left-hander Brett Cecil. It was Drew's seventh multihomer game and first since June 8, 2007, at Arizona.
Martinez hit a leadoff homer off the facing of the second deck in the seventh off Shawn Camp as the Blue Jays lost their fifth straight.
"We definitely lost as a team tonight," Blue Jays manager Cito Gaston said. "We didn't pitch well, we didn't play defense and we certainly didn't hit. We didn't play well at all."
Lester (10-7) allowed one run and three hits to win for the first time in five starts and improve to 3-1 with a 1.65 ERA in four outings against Toronto this season. After the first three batters reached safely, the left-hander set down 22 of the final 24 batters he faced. Despite his dominance, Lester said he never felt comfortable.
"It was just one of those nights where it's a battle from the beginning," Lester said. "Not only do you have to battle the other team but you have to battle yourself and just try to stay one step ahead of them."
Fernando Cabrera finished the three-hitter.
Cecil (5-2) allowed six runs, four earned, over 4 1-3 innings in his first game since he left a home start against Baltimore on Aug. 8 with a sore left knee.
The loss was Cecil's first since a May 20 defeat at Boston, a game in which he allowed five homers, including four in one inning. Of the 11 homers he has allowed this season, seven have come against the Red Sox.
Toronto made three errors, none stranger than Cecil's miscue in the fourth. With Jason Bay on first after a leadoff walk, Cecil dropped a throw from catcher Rod Barajas, then requested a new ball from the umpire but failed to call time out before firing the old one into the third-base dugout. Bay moved to third on the play and scored two batters later when Mike Lowell singled through a drawn-in infield. Drew followed with his second home run.
"I wasn't even thinking about time out being called, saw a scuff mark or some dirt on the ball, went to throw it in, I wanted a new ball and just turned around and chucked it," Cecil said. "I was definitely upset about it. It's nobody's fault but my own."
The Red Sox chased Cecil and tacked on two more runs in the fifth. Pedroia hit a leadoff single and Kevin Youkilis drew a one-out walk, bringing lefty Brian Tallet out of the bullpen. Pedroia scored when John McDonald threw the ball away on Bay's infield chopper, sending Youkilis to third. David Ortiz followed with an RBI grounder.
NOTES: Pedroia rejoined the team after spending two days in Boston as his wife gave birth to the couple's first child. ... C Jason Varitek (neck) missed his third straight game. "We'll just keep evaluating him and see how he's doing," Francona said. ... Blue Jays 3B Edwin Encarnacion left after three innings with a sore left knee.

12:45 pm - NFL Preview 2009
1. Patriots - 2008 Record: 11-5
With Brady back, can the Patriots make another superbowl run now? Brady will have new weapons at his disposal. The Pats signed veteran Joey Galloway to be a third down deep threat to go along with Moss and Welker. They also brought in Fred Taylor, a bruising running back (top 10 all time in rushing among running backs), to spell Laurence Maroney and Sammy Morris; Taylor may in fact be the Pats best go-to option at the goal line among their running options. I like the fact that they brought in sound Greg Lewis at receiver from Philadelphia to compete with Galloway for the #3 receiver position and veteran tight end Chris Baker who has good hands. Defensively, they still need a #1 cornerback. Bringing in veterans Leigh Bodden and Shawn Springs should help in the secondary but I worry about how much longer the Pats can rely on veterans. Patrick Chung and Brandon Tate were great draft moves, especially Patrick Chung for defensive purposes; he should contribute right away for the Pats.
Projected 2009 Record: 13-3, AFC East Champions; #1 seed in AFC playoffs
2. Steelers - 2008 Record: 12-4, AFC North Champions, #2 Seed in AFC playoffs, Super Bowl 43 Champions
The model of consistency in the second half of this decade- will they win their 3rd super bowl out of 4 years like the Pats did in the first half of this decade? With Big Ben's troubles, will the Steelers want to make a claim to Michael Vick? Rashard Meddenhall should definately establish himself even more in the running game to spell Willie Parker the way Bettis did for so many years with other running backs for the Steelers. The Steelers are a model of consistency, especially on defense; Troy Polamalu has to be one of the best signings on defense in the past two decades along with Ed Reed and Deion Sanders among NFL franchises. The Steelers defense also boasts left cornerback Ike Taylor, right inside linebacker James Harrison, left inside linebacker James Farrior, nose tackle Casey Hampton, and defensive lineman Aaron Smith. On offense, they return a cornerstone in Hines Ward and fast rising Santonio Holmes at wideout. They should give the Patriots all they can handle in the run for the #1 seed in the AFC playoffs. Steelers and Patriots are on a collision course for the AFC Championship game pending both teams stay moderately healthy.
Projected 2009 record: 12-4, AFC North Champions, #2 seed in AFC playoffs
3. Eagles - 2008 Record: 9-6-1, wild card- lost in conference championship to Arizona Cardinals 32-25
Does McNabb have one last push in him to get the Eagles to the Super Bowl and actually win? Will signing Vick eventually lead to Vick replacing McNabb as the Eagles' starting quarterback? Just how dangerous will the Eagles be with both of them on the field at times? The Eagles made probably the biggest news of the NFL offseason by signing troubled star Michael Vick. I guess everyone should get a second chance. If the Eagles can utilize Vick in the right way, plus McNabb staying healthy; the Eagles just increased their chances of making this year's Super Bowl. A healthy Brian Westbrook is pivotal. I really like the drafting of LeSean McCoy by the Eagles, he is the future of the Eagles running game. DeSean Jackson should have no problem keeping the #1 receiver position and should get more looks downfield deep with the drafting of specialist Jeremy Maclin underneath to make that possible for Jackson. Losing Jim Johnson, a longstay at defensive coordinator, to cancer should inject emotional momentum into this team. Brian Dawkins going to Denver was a big loss but they may be able to weather that. Hopefully translating their late season push this past year into early success this season will help as well.
Projected 2009 record: 12-4, 1st NFC East, #1 Seed in NFC playoffs
4. Giants - 2008 Record: 12-4, 1st NFC East, 1st Seed in NFC playoffs, lost to Philadelphia Eagles in Divisional Round, 23-11
Eli signs big contract, now can the Giants make a deep playoff run without the services of troubled wide receiver Plaxico Burress? Antoine Pierce could be another hole to fill if he is charged as well. Brandon Jacobs is a monster in the Giants running game along with the versatile speed demon Ahmad Bradshaw. Hakeem Nicks, a record-setting receiver at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill drafted by the Giants, was a great second. Giants have one of the top 3 best defensive lines (Pats and Steelers are the other 2 of course) in the NFL with the return of Osi and two veteran dlinemen signings (Rocky Bernard and Chris Canty). The return of Justin Tuck is also huge for that defense. I am a big fan of Mattias Kiwaunka as well (out of Boston College). Chris Sintim should provide yet another weapon on the Giants defense other than the defensive line.
Projected 2009 Record: 11-5, 2nd NFC East, Wild Card in NFC playoffs
5. Colts - 2008 Record: 12-4, 2nd AFC South, 5th seed in AFC playoffs, lost in Wild Card game to San Diego Chargers in OT, 23-17
Indy has a new coach and Marvin Harrison is gone. Can Indy turn around their current playoff troubles? It will be interesting early to see how the Donald Brown vs Joseph Addai battle at RB will turn out, I smell committee since Joseph Addai can't seem to stay healthy. Anthony Gonzalez should see a lot more balls thrown his way since Marvin Harrison is no longer playing for the Colts. Gonzalez in his first year showed a lot of promise and should excel even more now that he is in his 3rd year (breakout year for many receivers) and sliding into the #2 starting spot opposite Reggie Wayne. Reggie Wayne continues to prove why he is one of the #1 receivers in the league. During the past 3 years, Reggie Wayne surpassed Marvin Harrison in production. Dallas Clark should also have a huge year statistically speaking as well. The defense is the concern as far as defending the run, however. The defense returns all-pro defensive ends Robert Mathis & Dwight Freeney, middle linebacker Gary Brackett, and staple/cornerstone strong safety Bob Sanders.
Projected 2009 Record: 12-4, AFC South Champions, 3rd seed in AFC playoffs
6. Titans - 2008 Record: 13-3, 1st AFC South, #1 seed in AFC playoffs- lost in Divisional Round to Ravens, 13-10
After their run with revived quarterback Kerry Collins to grab the #1 seed in the playoffs to only lose in a heart-breaker to the Ravens in the divisional playoff game, what will Tennessee do to erase that painful memory this year? How much will losing Albert Haynesworth hurt them in their run defense? The Titans look to improve upon last year's accomplishments and show that they can overcome their current adversity. As always, having speedy Chris Johnson and goal-line monster LenDale White should help their efforts. Kerry Collins continuing to play mistake-free football will also be key. He was a nice suprise filling in for then injured starter, Vince Young. Unless Vince Young shows he can carry this team as a leader, Collins should continue to be the guy at QB until proven otherwise. He did, afterall, lead them to a 14-2 mark last year and the AFC's #1 seed for the playoffs. On defense, Haynesworth's defection to the Redskins is a major blow but Jeff Fisher is a great coach and will most likely find a way to minimize that weakness as much as possible. The Titans defensively return strong safety Chris Hope, middle linebacker Keith Bulluck, and defensive lineman Kyle Vandenbosch to bolster the defense.
Projected 2009 Record: 10-6, 2nd AFC South, Wild Card in AFC playoffs
7. Chargers - 2008 Record: 8-8, 1st AFC West, 4th seed in AFC playoffs, lost to Pittsburgh in Divisional Round
A banged up Tomlinson derailed their hopes of making the superbowl last year. Can one last memorable season by Tomlinson and the return of heralded linebacker Shawn Merriman fuel a deep playoff run? A woeful 0-4 start plagued the 2008 campaign for the San Diego Chargers as they searched for answers. LaDanian Tomlinson returns from being banged up for most of the 2008 season. Coach Turner looks to keep Tomlinson fresh with much more looks to 3rd-down specialist speed demon, Darren Sproles. Sproles can squeeze through holes that no other would even dream of going through and this may be his best season in the offense yet.
There's a lot to say about the fast maturing Matt Ryan and the strides he made in his first season. Michael Turner was also a nice suprise for the up-coming Atlanta Falcons as well as the maturation/rise of a reliable receiver downfield in Roddy White. The question is what can the Falcons do to build upon that in year 2 of the Turner/Ryan/White era?

03:14 pm - Brief sports update blog
I really need to think of a catchy sports-related theme or themes for this blog I want to start on here that reflects about the most current sports stories. Like Colin Cowherd's two for the road, etc.
Yanks vs Sox this weekend-
Huge series, absolutely a very important series. The Sox down a 2.5 games so they really need to either split or win 3 out of 4. The Sox can't lose 3 out of 4 or get swept or they can forget about winning the division even with the 3 game series near the end of this month.
Michael Vick Sweepstakes-
Where will Vick land in the NFL and does the NFL really want him? I guess let him play because we live in the land of second chances (the culture of the United States). So give him his chance, he's paid his dues. I'm not at all condoning what he did, it was sick but everyone deserves a second chance. Washington seems to be the frontrunner in the sweepstakes and may very well land there to back up if not supplant Jason Campbell (overrated).
NFL Preaseson kicks off with Hall of Fame Game in Canton on Sunday night:
NBC gets it started with the Hall of Fame games between Buffalo and Tennessee at 8pm Sunday. Even though it's preseason, July was brutal as far as sports so I'm glad to have football back. July has to be the WORST sports month.
Just don't know if the right girl for me is even out there......
