Getting that Kansas City monkey off their back in high style yesterday, the Sox now head to Arlington, Texas for a series with the Rangers before heading back to Boston for their Fenway debut. This weekend’s three game set features Tim Wakefield in the opener, then a certain short-fused psycho in the second game, finishing up with Curt Schilling on Sunday night.
It’ll be good to see Wake back on the mound, as last year’s injury-riddled campaign was a major disappointment – if back to full health he’ll be an important cog, an innings-eater with the certain ability to win someteen games. The Sox try to keep up the momentum starting at 2:05 eastern time. Use this as your game thread for today’s action.
