Red Sox Chick/Toeing the Rubber

Because you always need a backup plan

Keep the curtain drawn and the record on

It’s always more fun to watch a win than a loss but we weren’t afforded that luxury at Pawtucket yesterday.  Still, the game was fun, the weather was nice and we got to see some good pitching (Randor Bierd pitched much better than the final score indicates and R.A. Dickey, for the Bisons, was pretty damned impressive and seeing Alan Embree take the mound was exciting – especially since he pitched so well).  It was a great day for a baseball fan who loves pitching – just wish it ended better for the PawSox.

The Red Sox proper are wearing me out.  I’m thrilled for the winning but wish it came with a little less drama.   How many of you turn the channel or (like me) at least hit the volume when Papelbon comes in?   For someone so dynamic he’s almost unwatchable for me right now.  The two three-run homers in the 7th, though?  I could take more of that, thanks!

No matter, I guess.  Sox have two wins against the Baltimore and are going for the sweep as I write this.  The upcoming week sends the Sox to Toronto and then Baltimore…how about a winning streak, fellas?
