Trade Deadline Results in Hilarity

Sox add to the comedy that has been their 2012 season by trading for native son and all-time comedian, Steven Wright, at the deadline. Unsurprisingly, Wright is a knuckleballer.

  • Strikeout, lineout for Beckett to start off. Now the terrifying Cabrera…is out on two pitches. Baseball!

  • No score for Sox after getting leadoff man on and loading bases with 2 out…but a 35-pitch first inning against the best pitcher on Earth is not a bad start. Still, there may be no other opportunities in this game…

  • Somehow (Verlander allergic to rain?) the Sox have scored 4 to the 1 Beckett allowed before being pulled (injury?). The game is official now after Mortensen got through the Detroit 5th.

  • Also Verlander has thrown 94 pitches through 4…pretty sweet!

  • Win last night after Detroit rally in 6th snuffed by the rain. But since the rain kind of aided their rally, seems only fair. Can’t remember last time Sox WON a rain-shortened game; they seem to be mostly losses in my memory.

    Sweep ‘em, please.
