**MOJO** - X-Men Day 1

Lately, the Sox have been missing something. That little something "X-tra" if you will. We all know it's there, however, waiting to be unlocked and send this team on a tear. So let's see the Red Sox adopt the spirit of another band of misfits, and win some games for a fanbase that after a 2-game losing streak, has all ready begun to fear and hate them.

Taking the mound today:

Wakefield is our colossus. Always dependable, able to carry the team on his back, and sure Peter Rasputin may be a communist, but the color Red seems to get along with this team just fine. So let's see the knuckleball dance against Detroit today, and maybe a fastball special or two just to keep the hitters off balance.

From the bullpen:

When Timlin exits as the last man out of the bullpen, lets see the ice running through his veins as he locks down another win. And if he happens to shatter a few bats like they were icicles, I wouldn't complain.

And managing the team:

Sure, he may look a little dorky in that picture, but who am I to judge knowing all the backstory to virtually every major X-Men character. Let's hope that Tito can manage the bench today all ready knowing what Alan Trammel is thinking, staying one step ahead of the game and giving the team the X-tra edge it needs for the win.

You've got your mojo, now go out there and be the best there is at what you do (even though what you do may not be pretty), bub.

Remember one of the alternative X-men universes where there were little Nightcrawlers called "Bamfs"? Those were durn cute.

Your picture accompanying Francona is missing; is it supposed to be Professor X?
