    And the Sweep is Complete…

    What a GREAT time in the Holy Land this weekend! And here are some random thoughts from the game I saw Saturday, and the game I did not on Sunday, as I was traveling home… Despite the fact that it was cold and rainy on Saturday night– a crappy night at Fenway Park is better […]

    Another Wonky Contest…

    Holy Buckets! What IS it with the Red/White Sox dynamic this year, each game weirder than the last (except for game 3, which was just an acid flash back to the early part of the decade…) and of course, this is a game I miss…. Not that he could have pitched a ton of innings, […]

    Flashback to 2004, 2007, etc etc…

    It was JUST like old times! Tim Wakefield pitched brilliantly (7 innings, throwing 94 pitches, 73 for strikes(!!!) giving up 1 run on 6 hits while walking 1 and striking out 3–and no wild pitches, OR passed balls!) He also threw his 1st 17 pitches for strikes–every last one…And then someone from the bullpen comes […]

    Another strange game…

    Jon Lester pitched well, but unfortunately, the run support did not happen until the 8th inning, when Jason Bay hit the home run (his 28th) to put the Sox ahead for good. Manny WHO? Lester’s line: 6 2/3 innings, giving up 3 runs on 4 hits (including a homer) while walking 2, throwing a wild […]

    One strange duck of a game…

    How does one score 6 runs with only 2 hits? If your Jose Contreras and you cannot pick up the ball, resulting in the error–the Sox do–with 6 unearned runs…Here is his line: 2.2 innings, throwing 84 pitches, 46 for strikes, while giving up 7 runs (ONE earned) on 4 hits (including Mike Lowell’s 3-run […]

    A Much Needed Sweep…

    Holy Buckets! Did Jon Lester twirl a gem last night or what? 8 Innings of 1 run ball, improving his record to 10-7 with an 3.58 ERA…The rest of his line:3 hits, while walking 2  and striking out 5… And this sweep gives the Sox a great boost going into the 3-game home series against […]
