    Red Sox 1, Toronto 3:
    Not exactly the way I envisioned…

    Posted by Christine E. at 11:35 am in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox Comment (1)

    Well, 3 games into the 2nd half, the Sox are 1-2, and have lost 2 games in the standings, which means there is only 1 game that separates the Sox and the Skanks in the AL East….

    Freaking wonderful…

    Can’t blame Jon Lester, who held his own again the master himself, Doc Halladay, who may have pitched his last in a Blue Hay uniform–a complete game, 105 pitch (78 for strikes) 6-hitter, giving up only 1 run to the Sox while walking 1 and striking out 7. If that was his swan song in Toronto, it was a hell of one…

    And on just about any other day, Lester’s line would have been more than enough: 7 innings, throwing 112 pitches (66 for strikes) while walking 4 (a bit concerning, this) while striking out 6. It was also nice to see Manny Delcarmen come in and have a good outing, giving up only 1 hit in his 1 inning of work.

    Daisuke is coming back to Boston briefly to meet with Tito, pitching coach John Farrell, and the medical staff to gauge his progress on his rehab. From Tito: “Nothing’s changed, because it’s not supposed to [yet], but everything is still good…I know I’ve said it before — he’s done a great job of working….[He’s been limited to] flat ground. I think the farthest he’s gone is to 120 [feet]. When we see him again on Friday, we’ll have a little better feel for where he’s at.” It’s looking more and more like this will be a lost season for Daisuke, as he is not expected back until late August or early September…I for one, don’t want him back until his is “right” Whatever THAT means…

    Jed Lowrie came back on Saturday and wasted no time, hitting a home run in the Sox loss–and, apparently, because of Nick Green’s excellent play, Jed Lowrie will also serve as the backup to 3rd baseman Mike Lowell…

    And yesterday was the 1,400th game that Jason Varitek has played with the Boston Red Sox–which makes him #9 pm the all-time list

    Went to the Baseball Hall of Fame this weekend–HOLY…BUCKETS! What an amazing place–you can just FEEL the history pouring off everything…Too a ton of pictures, which I will post–If you have never been, its something you really need to see…and I got this VERY cool T-shirt that says “Is It 7:05 yet?”

    Coming up: The Sox head to Texas to play the “Dark Bright Blue Team”–the Rangers. Jon Smoltz makes his 5th start for the Sox, going for his 2nd win, opposed by former protégé‚ Kevin Millwood. 1st pitch 8:05pm…
