The Red Sox, skidding into late July, send their ailing knuckleballer to the mound tonight after a long rest. Questions abound. Will he hold up? Will Kevin Youkilis snap out of a horrible slump? Will the Royals do to the Sox this year what they did to the Yanks last? Will Curt blog mid-game, and let us know what the heck is wrong with our beloved team? Will tonight end with the Sox in first or second? Will we begin the quick descent back into madness after having spent the better part of 7 weeks trying to build up our tolerance for the inevitable tough losses? Answers during and after the game, and we expect your comments here.
