I am NOT responsible for this. Longoria & Upton might be!

I have alibis. I swear. Could be Upton and Longoria's fault for launching so many HR's its way this post-season.

The Boston Red Sox's season isn't quite up in flames, but a small fire at a landmark near Fenway Park can't be a good omen.

The fire Wednesday melted and blackened some of the plastic panels on the red, white and blue Citgo sign over Fenway's Green Monster in left field. No one was injured.

The Green Monster has seen several balls soar over it in recent days. Boston trails Tampa 3-1 in the American League Championship Series.

You know, a little more than a decade ago, a broadcast booth at Fulton County Stadium caught fire, and the Braves went on to win the division ...

Jason, the sign is at least a few blocks away from Fenway. Longoria is good, but he ain't that good.
