Awkward Personified comes to Fenway this weekend.Well, they're in the right ballpark for that!
Alex Rodriguez — the one you’ve despised all these years — makes his return to Boston for a three-game series starting Friday night, and A-Rod has a shot to tie Willie Mays for fourth on the all-time home runs list.
Rodriguez has 659 career homers. Mays hit 660. There are no words to express how wrong this feels.
What do you think, Dr. Charles Steinberg?

Perhaps the Sox’ well-known choreographer could produce Terry Cashman singing, “Willie, Mickey and the Duke.’’
And what are Fenway fans to do? Other than boo?
