Watch for the "Blame Game" -- everyone's favorite -- to soar into high dudgeon in the coming off-season. The natives are vengeful. The hot stove will be no place for the faint of heart.

If it is bitterness, anger, bloodlust, and outright mayhem that you fancy you can skip right past the atavistic tong wars of the National Football League in search of a fix and go right to the off-season of the relatively pastoral game of baseball where the settling of some nasty scores can be expected.

While not being quite ready to go that far -- especially in the heat of the moment -- one can understand the disgust the Red Sox have roused; their play lately having been avowedly disgusting.
