Buchholz-Coke a duel? Nah. That was nothing. Tonight’s the real deal, at least on paper. Beckett-Verlander, two guys who have started the year hot and look to keep going. The Sox, lucky to score a run last night, may be lucky to get a hit tonight. Hopes aren’t high, but spirits are, at least, a little higher these days.

Well, I guess I can watch the Bruins now. JD sleeping in right costs the Sox a run and that is probably all Verlaunder needs.
Don’t know who Verlaunder is. Damn iPhone!
Beckett looks unsharp.
Papi kisses the ring of BABIP.
JD gets that run back! 2-1 Sox. Bruins up 1-0.
Wow, Austin Jackson was doing *terrible* before compiling a nice 10-game hit streak. It’ll be interesting to see if he can keep it up while still striking out every fourth at bat.
Josh thru 5. Still 2-1.
Gosh, Verlander is really nice to watch. Works quick, paints.
The way Beckett has been dealing lately 2 runs may be all he needs, I hope.
Curious, Josh is out after 83 pitches and six innings. Worried something is wrong with him.
Where is all the fog coming from, or is my iPad failing.
Would you be surprised if every team was .500 at the same time in the a.l. east this year?
Oh, and nice dinger papi.
Edes just posted on Twitter that Sox agreed to a minor league deal with Kevin Millwood
Verlander has a great move to first keeping Carl guessing
And the Bs kill the Bolts’ first pp. Still 1-0.
Millwood can hold down the fort in P’tucket when Doubront calls recalled.
Six strong from JB, Albers a good 7th, Bard on for the 8th.
Kevin Millwood is awful.
Bard promptly gives up a homer.
Is it just me or does Bard just doesn’t look as sharp as he has in the past…and just like that back-to-back off him
Fucking Bard. What a waste.
Ugh. Warm someone up, tito
IBM, I think they needed Millwood because Dubront is hurt and we may see Millwood up to take Dice-K’s slot, unfortunately. Aceves needs to be in the bullpen.
Call goes in our favor there
3-3, bottom 8, Time to start over.
If Wheeler and Jenks can get healthy, Aceves will be in the rotation.
Verlander is still in there in the 8th.
Toronto beats Tampa, 3-2.
So Sox have an opportunity to move up.
So when is Pedoria going to start hitting??
Gonzo appears very confused by Verlander.
This game, one that seemed to be a huge bonus win over Verlander, went to shit fast.
Just reported on NESN that Beckett left because he has some neck stiffness, this would be major suckage if he is hurt
Beckett left with a tight neck. Isn’t that a town in New Jersey?
And let’s hope that lined shot to the back of paps knee doesn’t cause any issues
Bruins 1, Tampa 0, 2nd int.
Looks like Tim Thomas is having a strong game
This game was a toss up anyway. Verlander was going to be tough, but we had Beckett on the bump so it could have gone either way. Bard threw two bad pitches and Paplebon is doing his this isn’t a save routine of sucking
Well, screw this game. Two innings from six in a row and over Verlander to boot, and now this.
Paps loads the bases with 1 out, then ks Boesch on 3 pitches.
Bruins look very solid. Probably should have potted one more, but not bad on the road. 20 big minutes left.
And then Paps ks Miggy.
Paps goes for the dramatic. Time for a hero now. Cmon I’m ready to go to bed.
Papi singles. Iglesias to third, none out. Huge chance here.
Drew IBB. Plugged, none out. This is it I think, Oki coming in and Youk out of the game. Win now or else!
Deep fly ball Jed!
Nice to see Papi hitting well lately
Great AB here by Jed.
Wow. I have never seen that. Iglesias gunned out at home on a bloop single to left that turns into a FC. Terrible luck for the Sox.
I mean, that is just ridiculous what happened.
Now Crawford rips one just foul down to right. Where is the luck?
Ok, make it 2-2 Bruins!
Sweet way to go carl.
Paps looked like a psychopath after greeting Crawford. Serious serial killer vibe.
Unbelievable win, too bad Beckett couldn’t get the win but I’ll take it
Paps looked like billy bob thornton’s character in Slingblade
2-0 Bs, mid way through 3rd
Sox get Franklin Morales from Rox for PTBNL. Oki DFA’d.
Bs win too!
