Bill Pullman Is No Churchill: Pads-Sox Gamer III

“Good morning. In less than an hour, baseball players from here will join others from around the world, and you will be launching the largest Padres-Red Sox battle in the history of baseball. Baseball, that word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can’t be consumed by our petty differences any more. We will be united in our common interest. Perhaps it’s fate that today is the 4th of July, and you will once again be fighting for our 3.5-game lead. Not from Yankees, Jays, or Rays, but from Orioles. We’re fighting for our right to pitch, to hit, and should we win the day, the 4th of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day when the Red Sox declared in one voice, ‘We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to win the division, we’re going to go deep in the playoffs.’ Today we celebrate our Independence Day!”

Stults vs. Webster. Enjoy some burgers and dogs and don’t blow your arm off. Comment away!

  • Webster gets through the 1st unscathed, just one walk, and then Ellsbury singles and Victorino doubles. 2nd and 3rd, none out.

  • Nice outing for Webster. 5-2 after 5 1/2. 97 pitches.

    If Farrell indeed brings in Bailey, I hope he keeps him on a short leash. On the other hand this probably is a good situation to give Bailey another chance.
