The posting’s been intermittent, and it has less to do with the fact that the Sox are playing so well there’s nothing to complain about than that the summer is fully mature and Lamaze classes have come calling. In any case, this poster is still here, very happy about the current roll (and let’s just say it: the Sox are HOT!), and relishing in the improved defense. Theo deserves major credit for that Nomar trade – it really has shored up a team that was desperately in need of some better glovework, and the Red Sox have picked it up since #5 left on a jetplane.
Make no mistake, we’re still worried about Terry’s ability to manage close ballgames, though his errors may be cloaked by diving stabs at first base (thanks, Doug) and acrobatic grabs in the hole (thanks, Orlando). And the Sox still have zero distance between them and the WC chasers. So nothing’s really different, at least not yet.
Lastly, welcome back, ‘Tek, and play well this weekend.
