Here come the Red Sox. Forgive me if I can’t get excited.
Aaron Harang vs. Justin Masterson tonight. The Sox no longer have Ted Williams, Babe Ruth, Yaz, Jim Rice, Dewey Evans, Fred Lynn, Bobby Doerr, Carlton Fisk, Jimmie Foxx, Harry Hooper, Red Ruffing, Tris Speaker, or Cy Young. They aren’t invincible, despite what ESPN wants you to believe.
I really want to win at least two games in this series. Let’s start tonight.
Discuss the game here.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
