Successful Road Trip: Sox-M’s Gamer IV

4-2 so far on their AL West trip, the Sox finish it against the Mariners today, with a chance to reach .500 again if the sputtering offense is successful against James Paxton. The Sox (who demoted Masterson recently) send knuckleballer Steven Wright to the hill, in what surely must be one of his last chances to prove he can really stick as a major leaguer. Wright will turn 32 this August. Not that I’m not older than that myself, but we’re talking about baseball years.

  • I was at this game with the gerblet. It was Little League day, so we packed ourselves into the van and made the three-hour drive to Seattle, where we walked in the parade which takes the kids all the way around Safeco on the track. We took a few pictures along the way, and got a pretzel to sit outside the bullpen to watch Steven Wright take his warm-ups and for Blake Swihart to work out ahead of time with Carl Willis.

    Willis came over to my son and gave him a BP practice ball. It was a pretty good day.

  • Glad to hear you had a good one, gerb! Didn’t make it out this year to a Sox game at Safeco. Hopefully next year. I’m not holding out much hope for either team making the run necessary to make an October game possible.
