Pain no longer quite so stabbing. Haiku-writing slows. We begin thinking about the off-season, and trades. . . .

Front office brain trust
Let's put Manny on waivers

Pedro in the eighth
damned if you do, damned if you don't
those god-damned yankees

Theo on drugs? Or maybe,
In recovery.

Are waivers truly
irrevocable if Sox
still get Manny back?

Yankees are beaten   
silly young Florida team

Left field, Green Monster
Sometimes only a symbol
Manny is back too

Trot's homer happened
Bullpen shut down all hitters
Still no Fenway lights

All hail Aaron Boone.
The slayer of Red Sox dreams.
Later, Yankees', too.

The box couldn't hurt.
