The Simpsons Movie is but a few scant hours away, and I must confess that I'm a little excited. And the Boston Globe is celebrating in its own way, employing that wonderful online utility, Simpsonize Me, to render several Red Sox players as they would look if they lived in Springfield and hung out with Homer J.

Predictably, Terry Francona frightens me the most.

I was going to Simpsonize a few people myself, but didn't have any photos with resolution high enough for the site. But you feel free.
