Wrote this to a friend yesterday morning:
I’m not of the “well, it’s the Royals so the Sox will roll over them” mind, never have been, but these games could be a lot of fun!
Last night was not a lot of fun.
Okay it was a little fun.Â Seeing Bill Hall go yard is always fun.Â Having Kevin Millar on the pre and post game shows and reminiscing about 2004 was fun.Â Watching Daisuke Matsuzaka pitch like the game in Philadelphia didn’t happen?Â Not so much fun.
But there is no time to dwell.Â There are still three games against the Royals to be played and won.Â The Sox just need to get back up on it.Â Tim Wakefield, Clay Buchholz and Jon Lester will be pitching those games.Â We have every reason to be hopeful!Â Special attention should be paid to Saturday night’s game…Zack Greinke v Buchholz.Â I know that Greinke has been snakebitten by the rest of his team and that he’s this fabulous pitcher who MLB is already getting the HoF plaque ready for, but I kind of like our guy too.
First, though, there’s Wake tonight.Â The next streak has to start with a win and I think Wake’s just the guy to lead them.
