Just think, if it weren’t for Dan Bard, closer no-longer-in-waiting, the Sox would be running away with the AL East. Or at least ahead by a game or a game and a half. Even weirder, everything I read around the intertubes leads me to think that it’s the catching, not the pitching, that is crippling the Olde Towne Team.
Tonight the Sox look to rebound from another bullpen crumble (that’s a couple in just a few days) as they send Josh Beckett to the hill to face Fausto Carmona. Comment about the action here.
