I like Arod's commentary.

I check periodically to see where they sit in relation to the 2001 Mariners (116-46). They're running three games behind right now: the Red Sox are 79-34, the Mariner were 82-31. The '98 Yankees (114-48) were even better: 84-29.

Tuned in to see Mookie's last AB and whether he could do it, and what do you know, he did it--hit for the cycle (plus a walk).

Interesting to note that not a single post-1961 team outperformed their Aug. 1st projection.

Stands to reason, though: laws of gravity, plus you've got a huge lead and you're probably regularly resting players through September for the post-season. The Dodgers last year were a whole other freakish case...I'd completely forgotten they were in the same place as the Red Sox.

I was at the game in Toronto when Mookie hit for the cycle, about 10 feet away from the guy who caught two homeruns (no, he's not that Youtube guy who has made a career out of it).
I hadn't been to Toronto since the stadium opened - it's nice but, boy, were the Blue Jays fans scarce (and quiet). I'm sure Benintendi heard me cheering for him it was that chill.

However you feel about the Red Sox, everyone loves Mookie Betts, right? Would hate for this to be anything:

Pulling for Betts as MVP, but after an 0-4 night and a 3-3 from Martinez, Martinez is close again for a Triple Crown. He's three points behind Betts in BA, 2 HR behind Davis, and comfortably ahead in RBI.

sox radio guy tim neverett is out and WEEI is apparently turning game broadcasts into a 'talk-show format'
i guess this is what happens when you are by definition unable to pivot to video
