Frank Thomas and Dan Haren teamed up on Wednesday afternoon to beat up on the Red Sox, and avoid a sweep, as they went on to win 5-1. I was unfortunate enough to be able to actually watch this game and it quite possiblly was the most boring game I've seen all year long. The Sox never really threatened and the pace of the game was at a yawn.
Kyle Snyder proved once again that he's an effective pitcher only if he has to face a line-up once around. After that his lazy curve and slow fastball seem to be set-up on a tee for the opposition. With the July 31st trade deadline rapidly approaching I'd be shocked if we didn't see the Red Sox try to pick up someone. Tall Arroyo just doesn't seem to be getting it done, and I'm not about to throw a welcome back party for Boomer. My expectations for him are low at the highest.
Not a bad series for the Sox as they took 2 out of 3 and have an off-day today and will face the Los Angeles of Anaheim Angels who hail from California which is part of the United States of America which in turn is located in North America in the Northern hemisphere on the planet Earth in the Milky Way galaxy, for the first time this year. I really miss just calling them the Anaheim Angels...
I'll be at the game tomorrow with my girl (Jeannine) and my brother and his wife, so hopefully my personal record can improve to 6-1 :-)
