Break Out the Vander Meer References: Sox-A’s Gamer

Last time out, Jon Lester did something special. Now, he has a chance — like 250 other pitchers, by my count to repeat that feat. Unfortunately, the odds aren’t the best: 249 have failed.

To make matters worse for the Red Sox, it might take something special  for the Red Sox to actually have a chance at winning this game, considering 1. They’re on the road, and 2. They’re facing a pitcher with a modicum of talent. I would say the Sox are the Boston Celtics of MLB, but the Celtics now have actually won a road game in the last two weeks, something the Red Sox (0-6 on the road in that span) cannot say.

So comment away!

  • Goddamnit Manny misplays a ball and drops a fly ball, turns into a triple.

  • At the Philly airport heading west, I have 5 more minutes of wireless (and half a margarita) before my flight takes off. I gotta say that Manny going 3 for 3 is going to make this flight a little easier….

  • Amazing that two of the best bullpens in the league from last year, Boston and Cleveland, are now among the worst. Really speaks to how truly volatile bullpen arms are.

  • Unfortunately RBF all three were singles. Still a good sign though.
    The Rays are back in first place, and have the best record in baseball (tied for it with the D-Backs, actually). And it’s almost June! This is a wierd feeling.

  • The Sox road record could get a boost by playing the Seattle Mariners next. Seattle is one of the worst teams in baseball and, judging from the gamers with the Yankees, has essentially given up.

  • Hopefully, SoxFan. Unfortunately the Yanks missed King Felix, whereas we face him tonight.
    Ugh, another 10:00 start tonight. I had the West Coast.
