Rays fans must feel bad too—Sox aren’t the only ones trading their ace today.  But they still had a chance at playoffs.

On the bright side, Yoenis Cespedes is the power-hitting outfielder we haven’t had—young, exciting PLUS great defense.  I saw someone on Twitter say that w/ Cespedes and JBJ in the outfield no ball will hit the ground.

Thanks to Jonny Gomes, who reportedly went out to left field and scooped up some dirt from the Fenway warning track, before leaving the park after the trade announcement.  Boston Strong, indeed!

Top 10 list—my day so far: 1. Get soaked by torrential rain just getting to car.  2. drive through rain, thunder and darkness.  3. voluntarily forfeit basic personal rights by peeing into cup for pre-employment drug test.  4. emerge from office into blue skies and sun.  5. Treat myself to rad coffee from gourmet place downtown. 6. finish report for funders at my main job.  7. mess around on Tumblr. 8. fantasize about potential lunch options—still an hour away. 9. mourn Red Sox trade of Jon Lester. 10. repeat #9 all day long —  :  (

May we be always more grateful for the help of domestic workers and caregivers; theirs is a precious service.
