We do not stain the game in this house

Idle questions for an idle day: What's the over/under on a bench-clearing brawl in the Beckett/Clemens game on Wednesday?

Will the brawl actually start before the game, when Beckett walks up to Clemens and says, "Dude, you were my idol when I was, like, nine," and Clemens replies, "Get off my lawn, punk"?

How many hit-by-pitches does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie-Pop?

I fully expect Clemens to preen around like a peacock with his prodigy Beckett in the house. He will have a smug grin on his face from the get-go.

I also fully expect Beckett to be petulant and completely ignore the presence of Clemens, and never look at him directly.

It's gonna be epic.

Ha, I can see it that way, too, although it's equally fun to imagine them both puffing their chests out and cussin' at each other across the empty park, while Posada and Varitek desperately try to hold them back and mouth "sorry" back and forth at each other.

I really am just hoping nobody gets hurt. (I still feel bad for Doug Mientkewicz.)

It will be a battle of the drama queens. One for the ages. I cannot wait.
