    Red Sox 4, Twins 3:
    2 out of 3 Ain’t Bad…

    Posted by Christine E. at 11:29 am in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox Comment (1)

    And taking 2 out of 3 from the Twins is notable–especially in the scary Metrodome–and it’s not super common either–Sox haven’t done it since 2000.

    And while Schilling was less than pleased with his outing, which was the 4th consecutive win for him, he went 6 2/3 with 7 strikeouts, and only giving up 3 runs on 8 hits and walking 2…If that is a sucky outing for him–hopefully he will have many more of those type of sucky outings…

    So now we head to Toronto for 3 after an off day (have I ever mentioned how much I HATE off days?) still firmly in 1st place–and hopefully the Sox can take at least 2 of the 3 games from Toronto–I swear it feels like the sox have played the Blue Jays like 40 times already this year…but after this series, the Sox will not face them again until my wedding weekend..and the a GREAT wedding present would be for the Sox to still be firmly in 1st place…

    Unfortunately, while the Skanks are still 5.5 games behind the Sox, they are now currently in 2nd place–of course I knew they would not stay in the cellar forever–but it was nice to hope…

    And unfortunately, all people want to talk about is Mercenary Roger—UGH…Can we make this go away now..Please? I did not think it was possible to loathe him, more than I already did—but that….that….DISPLAY at Skankee Stadium, pretending that he is all about the Skankees–yeah, right, Roger, all you care about is the M..O…N…E…Y…you Mercenary…

    Oki-Dokey: I KNOW the Sox Management did not expect to get what they did in Hideki Okajima–a brilliant reliever, and perfect complement to Jonathan Papelbon–But we will take it… With the scoreless inning he threw in the win on Sunday , that makes 16 consecutive, and the 1st time he has given up any hits (he gave up 2). And his ERA? .56–yes, like 56 cents…

    Lester Setback: Looks like the Sox will continue with the promise to be conservative with Jon Lester’s return. After the muscle cramp that cut short his last start, he will begin a rehab program of playing catch tomorrow in Toronto, before moving to long tossing, then to throwing in the bullpen–when he has cleared all of those, then he will start again…He must be horribly frustrated…

    Tomorrow: Josh Beckett goes for win #7 in Toronto as he faces Victor Zambrano. 1st pitch 7:07pm

      Hi Christine: If you haven’t read it yet, read Schilling’s post at his blog today: priceless.

      I hate off days, even more so when all the radio guys were talking about today was Roger going to the Yankees.

      If he wins more than 8 games you’ll have to peel me off the floor.


      Be safe,
