"We'll be coming hard here soon, too," Melvin said. "We've got 23 games left. We will. Time is there. "I think we're going to pick it up. I think the last 20 games or so we're going to get really hot. ace. Jon Lester pitched well enough to win 90 percent of his starts. So did Hernandez. And if it's a one-game playoff Sept. 30 for the right to advance to the A.L. Division Series, then it could well be Hernandez against Lester all over again.

Burmese beauty queen May Myat Noe lost her title last week due to her "lack of personality, integrity, loyalty to the organization, and lovely character," officials said in a statement issued the same day. The letter also cites her ungrateful attitude and trustworthiness as part of their reasoning. That ungrateful attitude refers to the 16-year-olds decision not to permanently alter her physical appearance, even when the organization offered to foot the bill. Noe is ready to relinquish the title and tiara, just as soon as she gets an apology, she said in a press conference Tuesday. Noe won the title in May, but later returned to Seoul to leverage her success into a singing career. Officials decided bigger breasts were a part of the deal. "We thought she should be more beautiful...so as soon as she arrived we sent her to the hospital to operate on her breasts," said David Kim, director of media for the pageant, The Guardian reports . The beauty queen denied the officials demand. She left South Korea with the crown and headed back to Myanmar, original parts intact. Pageant officials want a new queen to fill Noes shoes, but first, they need that $100,000 Swarovski crystal-encrusted tiara back. Kim claims the former queen absconded with the crown, but Noe claims she did not know of her dethronement until she had already left Seoul. Noe wants to wipe her hands clean of Miss Asia Pacific West, but shes holding onto the crown until pageant officials apologize for calling her a thief, not to mention for trying to strong-arm her into breast augmentation. "I don't want a crown from an organization with such a bad reputation," Noe said. "But I won't give it back to the Koreans unless they apologize. Not just to me but my country for giving it a bad image."
