Literary Solace for Sox Fans? 

On Monday night, I caught the end of Boston Red Sox season at Nectar's Bar and Lounge in downtown Burlington. Up until the ninth inning, waitresses passed out free wings in little paper containers. When the game ended, the wings vanished. A few disgruntled fans got up and sauntered into the main performance space for reggae night.

Why so grim, Sox fans, when there's a new novel out to keep you in a base-ballin' state of mind until spring training? Dirty Water: A Red Sox Mystery, by writer Mary-Ann Tirone Smith (she wrote the memoir Girls of Tender Age) and her Boston-based-blogger son Jere, tells the tale, among others, of what happens when nurses discover a baby -- whom they name, you guessed it, Ted Williams -- in Fenway Park.

In other baseball news: Three Vermont Lake Monsters were recently honored by Baseball America for their performance in the 2008 season.
