The second-place Boston Red Sox open up a three-game set against the first-place New York Yankees tonight, which means two things. One, that a man wearing a Big Papi jersey in Penn Station this morning better be faster and tougher than the real Big Papi, or he won’t make it anywhere near the Bronx. And two, Alec Baldwin and John Krasinski are due for Round 3 of their New Era shenanigans. Recall that last we saw the It’s Complicated co-stars, Baldwin had punched Krasinski in the face and urged him to get plastic surgery. So I don’t blame Krasinski for seeking revenge by billboarding Baldwin’s pooch. But much like the old Boston Cheers gang, who were always outclassed and outmaneuvered in their ongoing rivalry with Gary’s Old Towne Tavern, the Office star might be in over his head. This dog don’t hunt.
Three commercials, two clear Baldwin victories. But he’s yet to wear a Yankees hat.
