    Red Sox 13, Toronto 0:
    Winning the Series…

    Posted by Christine E. at 12:40 pm in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox Comment (1)

    2 Series played, 2 Series won. And if the Sox can manage to do this more often than not, this is going to be a VERY fun season…

    And as much as I love R.A. Dickey, can’t say I am all broken up about the fact that we beat the snot out of him–as we all know, the knuckleball is a fickle mistress–8 earned runs…Yikes!

    And Jon Lester was downright brilliant, throwing 7 strong, shutout innings for his 2nd win of the season. The rest of his line: 100 pitches, 67 for strikes, while walking none, hitting a batter, and striking out 6. And, in addition to his 2 wins, he starts the season with sparkling 1.50 ERA.

    And then there was John Lackey, who actually wasn’t too horrible in Saturday’s contest (he has only given up 2 runs—and struck out 8), until he had to leave the game in the 5th inning with a strained bicep. And a DL stint is likely for the beleaguered starter. UGH…Holy Hell…

    But Holy Buckets, How bout Will Middlebrooks???? 5 for 4 with THREE (almost FOUR!) homer and 4 RBI’s. Maybe his wrist really IS all better…

    Red Sox offense had 6 long balls in yesterday’s game, with Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli, and Daniel Nava getting into the act…

    Look for Stephen Drew to be back as shortstop sometime during this homestand. He was actually supposed to start today’s Open Day Home Game, but his final rehab assignment was postponed due to cold…

    But since Jose Iglesias is 9 of 17 thus far this season (go read that again–I had to…) his absence hasn’t really been felt. Of course, Inglesias can’t keep up this pace, so I expect as soon as Drew is back, he’ll be spending some quality time in Pawtucket.

    Speaking of Pawtucket, David Ortiz may be heading there for his rehab assignment as soon as the end of this week. It’s anticipated he would spend a week or so with the AAA club, before meeting the Sox during their next road trip…

    Happy Birthday to the last Teammate, Hall of Famer Bobby Doer, who turned 95 years old yesterday…

    Finally, in honor of Opening Day, 2013, here is an article from fellow BBA-er, Arne at Misc Baseball, chronicling the first game ever played by the Boston Red Sox in 1901. Great read. Check it out!

    Coming up: Fenway Park Opening Day, 2013! That Clay Person gets the nod, opposed by Wei-Yin Chen. 1st pitch 2:05pm…

    Then yet ANOTHER off day, and then Game 2 of the 3 game series against the Baltimore. Ryan Dempster, who will hopefully fare better in his 2nd start, gets the nod, opposed by Jake Arrieta for the cookies. 1st pitch: 7:10pm…

    Let’s do this…
