An 8-20 August.........So Far
That's a pretty dreadful month. And there are two games in two days left to go. Yesterday in Oakland, Josh Beckett and Manny Delcarmen were just fine, holding the A's to 2 runs. But the bats, or at least the bats in the line up, were mostly silent as the Sox took one on the chin yet again, 2-1. A day game and then the team is Mass. bound. At least the starting times will be back to normal. The team's performance? That's to be determined.
On the injury front, it looks like Trot and Tek will be back this weekend. And Gonzo too! Big Papi stayed in the hospital last night, and we await word. Those tests take time. Manny is in Boston too, still hobbled. And much the same word on Jon Lester, who is also back home.
These are tough times. It takes a special breed of fans to make it through. Do you have what it takes? I do. I'll be back later, when the cloud obscured sun makes an appearance in the eastern skies.
