That was an impressive doubleheader by the Red Sox. Granted, they’ve had the Rays’ number all year, but that doesn’t make it any less amazing. I just like them beating the Rays, that’s all…
- I think it’s the greatest thing when Jonny Gomes hits a no-doubter and he just does the slow bat drop. Just like last night. (Jonny Gomes’ walkoff homer secures doubleheader sweep for Sox)
- Now, the Red Sox still have a firm grasp on first place in the AL East, and a lot of the credit goes to the guys who started out far from the spotlight. (Bit players have played major roles for Red Sox)
- Sure, I’ll take this version of Alfredo Aceves, the guy who’s the quality spot starter who’s less psycho and more let’s-build-towel-forts-in-the-dugout crazy. (Time to accept Aceves)
- We all know full well that what Mike Carp‘s doing isn’t going to hold up over an entire season. But it sure is damn fun to watch him go, isn’t it? (Mike Carp: The new Brian Daubach?)
- Another pair of Sox down. For Clay Buchholz, it’s better safe than sorry, but with David Ross, foul balls are taking their toll. (Buchholz, Ross sent to disabled list)
- We’re over a month away from the trade deadline, and it’s about time to take inventory. First on the list? That oddly effective starting rotation. (Priority No. 1 For The Red Sox: Figuring Out What To Make Of These Starters)
- Oh, New York. The Yankees haven’t had an effective third baseman in what, three years? Still, it’s sad to see a guy like Kevin Youkilis go down. (Kevin Youkilis needs back surgery, out 10-12 weeks)
You work that 8th inning, Felix Doubront.
In fact, Doubront has now recorded an out in his eighth inning of work for his first time as a pro at any level.
