Home cooking > Change of scenery

Leading into the Red Sox home opener today, you had the jet-lagged Sox against the winless Tigers who were swept at home by the Royals and White Sox.

In the midst of the Sunday night shelling at the hands of Chicago, Jon Miller and Joe Morgan were suggesting that all the Tigers needed was a little time away to get back on track.

At the same time, the Red Sox were being pounded by the Blue Jays in Toronto, where much was made of their world tour with stops in Japan, Oakland and Canada. All they needed was to get home, get a little rest and they'd be fine.

Consider it the unstoppable force versus the immovable object, but for chattering announcer types.

As of the eighth inning in Boston - featuring Bill Buckner throwing out the first pitch, Aerosmith's Steven Tyler singing God Bless America and Neil Diamond doing a live version of Sweet Caroline - it appears that clean underwear and some new bling is the real recipe for success.

Well, that and a hit or two from anyone but their 2-3-4 hitters. That would probably be the most helpful improvement of all.
