So I decided to enjoy the day instead of locking myself up in a hotel room and I missed the majority of the game.Â Game stories tell me Wake struggled early and then settled down and that Gavin Floyd was perfect through five (The Baseball Project thanks you, Nick Green!).Â Â Not really much you can do with this game but keep it in the rear-view mirror.
Crabcakes is on the mound Sunday afternoon and then Josh Beckett pitches on Labor Day afternoon, so the team still has a good chance at leaving Chicago with a split for this series.Â I’ll be good with that.Â Let’s hope Crabby and Beckett cooperate.
Tonight was the final home game for the PawSox.Â I had planned to go but like so many of my McCoy plans this year, that ended up not happening.Â I went north, not south, this weekend.Â KellyO made it down for the last game and the PawSox didn’t disappoint, beating the Syracuse Chiefs 8-2.Â The PawSox have three more games in Syracuse and their season is over Tuesday night.Â It’s a sad reminder that fall is coming quickly and with it no more baseball.Â I enjoy Triple A and MLB on different levels and given how much exposure the MLB teams have, even in the off-season, I miss the Triple-A team just a little bit more when they aren’t playing.Â With any luck, the BoSox are going to give us baseball throughout October but for now I’ll wallow in a little sadness over the Triple-A season ending this week.
My math could be off but I believe Sunday afternoon at Lehigh Valley will be Kyle Snyder’s last start of his season (I think it should be Sunday but it could be for the last game on Monday).Â He has done an awful lot for the Bisons, regardless of the struggles of the team as a whole, and I hope that it translates into a call-up after their season ends.Â Â He’s earned it.
A reminder that both Sunday’s and Monday’s games are at 2:05pm EST.Â The chances are good that I might, once again,Â miss the majority of Sunday’s game but I’ll definitely be in a place to watch all of Monday’s.Â Small steps, right?
