Not sure if anyone outside of Boston is aware of this, but apparently a teenage Kevin Millar doing his best Springsteen impression is the talk of the town. It's become the 2003 Rally Monkey on the scoreboards at Fenway.

I saw this on the scoreboard while sitting in right field in Fenway last Saturday. Hilarious. Too bad the eighth inning rally fell short. Very appropriate with Millar having a good year and Springsteen coming to town. Sure beats the stupid monkey.
Pending physicals, the Yankees just acquired Damaso Marte and Xavier Nady (sportsillustrated.cnn.com) from Pittsburgh for Russ Ohlendorf (who they got from Arizona in the Randy Johnson trade), Jose Tabata, and two others from the low minors.
