  • So far this year Gardner is actually hitting better against lefties. And he just got his first homer of the year thanks to Mr. Beuhrle.

  • Varitek throuws out Lugo. Nice.
    Scoreles after three. We could use a nice and easy 8-2 or something like that, but it looks like another close game so far.

  • Cano is so amazingly awesome.

  • Home run Varitek. Shame Beltre hit into a DP right before him.

  • Phil Hughes is pretty damn awesome as well.

  • More fun with Nick Johnson’s stats: his BA and SLG combined is lower than his OBP. I’m sure he’ll start hitting at some point, but until then it’s just funny to see him getting walked more Albert Pujols.

  • This…whole team is awesome.

  • Cheering against Julio Lugo is considerably more enjoyable than trying to cheer for him.

  • Ugh I hate these Orioles broadcasters. They get half the names wrong, and complain about every close call that goes against the Orioles.

  • Swept by the Orioles. It’s the end of the world as we know it – and I don’t feel fine at all. Amazing, the ways this team finds to lose.

  • The Orioles almost doubled their season win total with that series.

  • What’s really sad is is the Sox had four full-time players in their lineup yesterday. How a “brilliant” team ends up with three DH’s I have no idea. Losing Cameron and Ellsbury has hurt, but they’re not worth more than a win or two. The real problem was thinking Martinez is a full-time catcher – something he hasn’t done for a reason in recent season. But someone in the organization obviously decided a catcher’s defense isn’t important. I’d love to know who. And did Bill James really agree?
