Texas Two-step

This morning, things are looking brighter after Boston won both games in yesterday's double-header against the Rangers.

And David Cone remains the epitome of stalwart:

In the opener, Cone became the first pitcher since Clemens in 1986 to have the Sox win 12 straight games behind him.

But Cone not only ran Boston's record to 12-0 in his last 12 starts, he improved his record to 6-0 after the team has lost.

With Pedro out, we couldn't ask for a better scenario than what Cone has done this season.

Meanwhile, on the Sunday ESPN Sportswriters show all they could talk about was the wild card. Seems everyone has already abandoned hope of the Red Sox taking the Yankees. Bah, humbug.
