Jason Johnson has lost his last seven decisions. But he deserved the win in his last start, and it’s a new era in Boston — the post "Holy freaking crap, we just got swept by the freaking Kansas City Royals!" era. It’s the Orioles now, a team against which the Sox have had better success than any other in the AL over the past two years.
As last night showed, coming home to find Baltimore waiting to serve you apparently sits well with this team. A series sweep would be nice, so the momentum can help push this club through the Big Boys later this month.
For now, I’m sure Johnson would like just a win in a Boston uniform, and I’m sure his teammates would like to provide him one.
