Dave!When it comes to nightmare scenarios, having Jarrod Saltalamacchia leave the Red Sox for the Yankees pretty much tops anything else in my head right now... including "Alien Invasion Destroys Disney World" and "Chocolate Pudding Made Illegal."

And tonight Salty hit another home-run hit his 40th double of the season, breaking the record for a Boston catcher, and banishing all fears that the guy can't produce a strong finish to the season. He's finally becoming the player I always knew he would be, and watching him blow past expectations of the stats-crunchers who dumped all over his batting average last season... despite his 25 home runs... has been hugely satisfying for a fan like me.

But his escalating success just makes him all the more appealing for a team like the Yankees, who could very much use a guy like Saltalamacchia in their roster.

Somebody is going to be backing up a dump-truck filled with money to Salty's front door and sign him to a nice fat contract.

If it's not Boston, I'll be crushed.

If it's the Yankees, I'll be devastated.

But I suppose if my worst nightmares come true, I'll always be able to look back on days like today and remember why I'm such a big fan.

Salty Non Homer
The look on Salty's face when he thought he had another homer in the bag is priceless.

And... I'm ready for the World Series. Which conveniently starts when I return from vacation.

But first... some wild-card antics...

    Boston is going to go big on Brian McCann. Salty to the Yanks isn’t out of the realm of possibilities.

    We drink your Saltalamacchia. We drink it all up!

    You could have at least lied to make me feel better!

    Oh how devastated I would be if I saw the headline “Chocolate Pudding Made Illegal.” (or any pudding for that matter)

    Hello! JOHNNY DAMON?????? Yah, THAT sucked. Such a #%*!#*## TRAITOR!

    Sorry, I need my reasons to mention that jackwad’s name.

    Enjoy the world series! But enjoy vacation first.
