We’re a bit groggy today. For the second time this week, the Sox played a late game and lost, thus making the hours we spent cutting into sleep time to be with the team (in spirit) a complete waste of time.
Thankfully, today’s affair is an afternooner, so hopefully the Red Sox will stop sucking and realize these are the Seattle Mariners. We’re not holding out too much hope. If you can’t hit Jeff Weaver, that pretty much says it all. Also, the Red Sox are 2-8 in their last 10 games against Seattle. Yuck.
Daisuke Matsuzaka will be asked to play stopper this afternoon against Ryan Fiereband, who’s given up 17 runs in just under 19 innings this season. But he’s a lefty, so again, he’ll probably throw a perfect game (hey, that throwaway line worked last time!).
