Vernon Wells

I'm going to have nightmares about this guy for the next four months. He is absolutely KILLING the Red Sox this year. He just hit his third home run of the game tonight to increase the Jays' lead to 8-5, giving him eight homers against them this year. EIGHT!!! That's more than half of his total on the season. That's amazing.

And the thing is, I like the guy. He's been a fantasy team stallwart of mine for years, and he's always up for a little playful trash talk in the Fenway outfield. But he legitimately terrifies me now whenever he's at bat against the Red Sox. He could seriously be this year's Andrew Jones.

Meanwhile, BJ Ryan just blows away the Sox in the 9th to end the game, and the Yanks are in extra innings in Detroit. Go Tigers.
