Sox won a long one last night, the grittiest 11-8 win you’ll see this year, and the good part of the bullepn is gassed (and Aceves seemingly hurt). Breslow: 2.1, Bailey: 1.2, Tazawa: 1.0, Uehara: 1.0. Time for Doubie to come up big.
Making my nearly-annual pilgrimage to see the Sox in person tonight. When choosing the one game (arguable I can afford to go to even one game and only missing one bedtime with the kiddo), I chose the game I thought the Sox were most likely to win. Game 1: Lester vs. King Felix, no way. Game 2: Webster vs. Iwakuma, ewwww (missed a great game in retrospect). Game 3: Doubront vs. Harang, ah, okay, struggling righty (Sox better against righties, though Harang has been better recently) and the Mariners are a little worse against lefties and Doubront seems to have found it a little bit. Game 4: Dempster vs. TBA–probably Bonderman, eh, kind of a coin flip with the other game, and I prefer a night game for missing less time with the kid and the like (also I sunburn).
Anyway, maybe I’ll post a time or two at Safeco. Either way, comment away!
