Red Sox Play Two, Lose Two.

The Boston Red Sox lost both games of a day/night doubleheader to the Chicago White Sox. The scores were 3-1 and 3-1. The two runs Boston plated were the lowest doubleheader total since they also scored two in a doubleheader in 1976. Yes, that's right. 1976!!! And now it's been revealed that Mike Lowell had been playing with two non-displaced fractured ribs. He's cleared to play as long as he can stand the pain. The Red Sox are a whopping ten games behind the NY Yankees and seven and a half behind Tampa Bay. I really think this season is over, closed, kaput, forget about it.

Clay Buchholz started the first game and was the tough luck loser. He only gave up two earned runs in his five innings. No run support saddled him with the loss. Right now the Sox are limiting his innings so he can come back against the Rays on Wednesday. I think it's too late for those kind of shenanigans and I hope he's not injured. He still has the lowest ERA of any starting pitcher in the American League. In game two, John Lackey went seven innings and gave up only one earned run. Two other runs were credited as unearned. Lackey got the loss because of, and I repeat, NO RUN SUPPORT.

The less I say this morning, the better. I'm going over to Full Tilt Poker dot com to play a little Texas Hold 'Em No Limit. I love it and I'm GOOD at it. Boston again plays the Pale Hose this afternoon starting at 1:10pm EDT at dear little old Fenway. It'll be Buehrle facing off against Beckett. Which Beckett will it be this afternoon? Only the Shadow knows. Or maybe Superman. The Hulk? Possibly Batman or Robin. Nah, Robin would be clueless.

Have a great Sunday and a wonderful Labor Day Monday. Stay safe on those roads. The police have been giving out tickets to the lucky recipients here in north central Connecticut left and right, east and west, north and south. So on that note, as always, BE SAFE. Thanks for being here.
