Mary Chesnut is a Devil Ray

We’re reading Mary Chesnut’s diaries. She was a member of high-southern society during the Civil War and her diary records many intimate and informal moments with the likes of Robert E. Lee, Jefferson Davis, and Jeb Stuart. As the war comes to a close and the casualty lists begin to consume her wide circle of friends, a sense of dread followed by sorrow begins to set in. I mention this only because I happened to be watching last night as a Southern Lad by the name of Jonathan Papelbon was taken yard in the 9th inning by A-Rod. For a moment, I could see the anguish that Chesnut often described on the faces of Red Sox fans as they drunkenly stumbled out their rusting and smelly ballpark. It seems A-Rod had the last laugh as the Yankees went on to win the game and take the series.

The Devil Rays finally beat the Royals yesterday and they finish up that series today.
