Sounds like an adult film or magazine, doesn't it? Well, it's just the word I coined to described the way the Red Sox are playing right now ("The Red Sox are so juggernauty at the moment.") After two games where they showed it didn't matter if they didn't quite have a grasp on baseball fundamentals such as fielding, they beat the Cardinals at their own game, nailing a runner heading for home, plus getting Jeff Suppan out at third while he did his best "Electric Slide" imitation.

Now, the funny thing about the appearance of juggernautiness is that it can disappear in an instant. Just ask the Cardinals, whose juggernaucity has gradually faded since getting off to a great start against the Dodgers. Or the Yankees, who looked great for about 6 2/3 games (7 2/3, when you consider they looked OK in their loss to the Twins). So we'll see whether the Red Sox can continue.

(On a mostly unrelated note, was anybody else disturbed by Chris Myers interviewing that "Ray" guy from the Bud ads with a bunch of people in "Rama-Lama-Ding-Dong" T-shirts behind them... during the game? I had to mute the TV. Or, rather, keep the TV muted, as Tim McCarver has finally driven me over the edge.)
