Friday Late Night Fight: Sox-O’s Gamer V

The Best Team In The Majors, the Boston Red Sox, take their show on the road to Oakland, their traveling companion to the Land Of The Rising Sun in the bizarre pre-season circus that was the Japan leg of the regular season openers.

  • Ehhhh…f*** it.
    It’s one of them “Wakefield sucks” nights. I wonder when he’ll stop being league-average/useful-enough at his (extremely reasonable) price. I kinda hate the feeling of knowing any given night with Wakefield could be an utter shellacking, though at least the Detroit 8 IP shutout early this year was fun to watch.

  • Shitty game to come home to. Shoulda stayed out longer.
    Oh well, Jacoby just slapped a ball to left field to plate a run. Steal a base damnit!

  • Why the hell wasn’t Ellsbury stealing? Now Papi has to lead off!

  • The umpire randomly threw someone out of the game for no apparent reason.
    It was Dave Magadan, the batting coach. Wtf?

  • Shouldn’t it be Sox-A’s?

  • Kazz, yeah, shoulda. I was pressed for time. Probably would have worked out better for Boston if it woulda been Sox-Os though…
