How Do You Say "Upstaged" in Japanese?

Okay, so JD Drew is just getting desperate now with the whole "please like me" thing. Getting the sole hit in the game and all. Does he think we don't have him figured out? Does he think we can't see what he's doing? Pshaw, we are wise people, sir. We know your endgame.

I have really got to stop watching so many spy shows.

As for Matsuzaka, despite Tom Caron and The Eck soft-pedaling the postgame, I think it actually was a respectable start. Because, they're right, normally on a day when your starting pitcher goes seven innings and lets up three runs, you're going to win that game with the lineup the Sox boast. Because normally, the Sox don't get one-hit and can scrape together more than three runs. Of course, Matsuzaka might want to stay as far away from Tim Wakefield as possible if that whole "no run support" thing is catching.

Although I imagine there's a Tim Wakefield Zone in the dugout and only Tim Wakefield is allowed in there. Doug Mirabelli may visit but other players are only allowed in by appointment.

"I think there's a Tim Wakefield ass groove in the bench," Marianne said. "There is absolutely no way that isn't true."

So I'm fairly certain that Wake watched last night's game from the safety of his designated zone in the dugout and thought, "At least I'm not the only one." I guess we'll find out tonight.

As for Matsuzaka, mountains...molehills, etc. He pitched well. He's going to be fine. And that Nike commercial? LOVE IT. Welcome to the major leagues, kid. And good luck. You're gonna need it. No pressure or anything,
