If you didn’t get a chance to watch the Futures at Fenway double-header today, well, you should have. Both were great games, and the PawSox had a come-from-behind win with a Carlos Pena home run in the eighth inning. Let’s hope we can see a few more of those next month.
Time for the major-league team to follow suit. David Wells has been solid in three consecutive starts, Manny Ramirez is back in the lineup — although even Terry Francona says he doesn’t know how well Manny can play on his right knee — and Mark Loretta returns to the lineup. Who knows, Coco Crisp might even prove me right and have a good game (yes, that was a shameless plug).
The Sox don’t seem to play well in Safeco Field, though, and they remain without Wily Mo Pena (tendinitis) and Kevin Youkilis (flu). But, hey, things could be worse — Alex Rodriguez could be playing third base.
