While their announcers are conducting forensic tests from their TV booths to determine if Red Sox pitchers are a domesticated breed of greased pig, the Blue Jays team on the field is performing like a barnyard epithet.

Is that all you got, Jays?

Lordy, what a letdown the latest, greatest Best Team Ever is. There’s a bad stench coming from north of the border and the Red Sox left here smelling like roses. They lost a wild first game but came back Wednesday and last night with convincing smackdowns that have left the newly revamped Blue Jays looking like a pale imitation of the underachieving Red Sox team from the last two seasons.

Remember, the Red Sox left Fenway Park after sweeping a four-game series with the Houston Astros, a team built to be swept and knows it.

This was supposed to be a prime-time, three-game American League East matchup, one team anxious to prove its fast start was no fluke, the other desperate to show its slow start was just that.

Instead of a good series, though, the Red Sox simply stepped over the Astros of the North, a team spinning into what looks like a death spiral, and it’s only early May.

For all the heat the Red Sox caught this offseason for not acquiring a superstar such as Josh Hamilton, instead making strategic strikes for role player Jonny Gomes and semi-stars like Mike Napoli, Ryan Dempster and Joel Hanrahan, the Red Sox’ new guys shined and glistened like the forearms of Clay Buchholz and Junichi Tazawa in these last two games.

Napoli went crazy on Wednesday night with two monstrous home runs. Last night, Dempster held Toronto to just four hits and one run in his six innings. Deposed-closer Hanrahan returned to that role for a night and faced the minimum in getting the save in a 3-1 victory. Sports Illustrated cover man Gomes hit a pinch-hit home run on Wednesday night and hustled like crazy on the basepaths last night.
