In the comments here, an anonymous Yankee fan warns us not to "get too comfortable with the Rivera you saw those first two games in April."

First of all, it was the second and third games in April, but whatever. Can't expect these clowns to fact-check. Those early April meltdowns were fun -- I was there for one of them -- and who can forget his utter failure to nail down an ALCS sweep last October?

But the bigger question is how has Rivera done against Boston? Has he always been lights-out? ... ESPN offers splits for only 2004 and 2005, so for everything else, I used David Pinto's Day by Day Database.

Good stuff. Now that I can no longer lurk at SOSH, I count on you for all my redsox goodness.

really? you can't lurk? you should be able to get the main board. ... in setting up my new account, i was logged out at times, but could access some of the forums.

the new URL is posted at the old EZ board.

Yeah, it's unfortunate. I seem to be able to access the blogs, but I can 't seem to get to the message board. I don't know why, it could be just me. ANd I guess it's also kind of a moot point, since the fire wall at my work doesn't care for the new URL, either.

que sera, sera.
