Red Sox Chick/Toeing the Rubber

Because you always need a backup plan

Midday Beckett

I love watching baseball on a sunny afternoon.  The only thing better would be if I sat in the park instead of in my living room to watch it.  But I’ll take NESN’s coverage of today’s game over nothing.  Sun shining, a little breeze and the Red Sox on the field at Fenway = a perfect day.

I had last night’s game on but was only paying attention to bits and pieces while doing other things.  So when Lackey left the game, I thought “Well, that could have gone worse”…little did I realize how right I was when I saw he had given up hits in the double digits.  How frustrating must it be for the Royals and their fans to know that they got 11 hits against Lackey and 16 in all and still lost the game 12-5?  Hell, the Sox even spotted them two errors and they still came out the losers.  I do not miss the days when many of our own games ended in such frustration.

1:35pm today we get to see Beckett take the mound in the sunny, summer afternoon.  That’s my idea of time well spent!

  1. It’s just mind boggling that a team can get that many hits and not get a W.  It’s also mind boggling that Lackey keeps winning.  I’ll take it.  Tough loss today.

  2. Then Josh has about the same line as Lackey except he only gives up 5 hits and takes a loss.  Such is baseball.  A perfect day spoilt.

  4. Hey Cyn! I’ve been out of the loop for a little while. Are you still doing Live Chats? If so, when is the next one??

    • Hey K! 🙂 Actually, we haven’t done one in a while. My situation has been such that it hasn’t worked out for me. I’m hoping to start them back up sometime in August, though. I really miss them!
