So. Last night. It was actually refreshing to see the Red Sox just pummel the Orioles like in the good ole’ days. Quite stress-free, I might add.
- Shane Victorino, professional hitter. The Flyin’ Hawaiian broke out the lumber yesterday, blasting two homers into the Monster seats and driving in seven runs. (Victorino powers Boston past Orioles 13-2)
- One cannot forget how solid Felix Doubront has been lately. Against a very potent Orioles lineup, the young southpaw worked his way out of jams and shut them down. (Doubront escapes trouble, cruises to 10th win)
- The rest of the league needs to look out for Dustin Pedroia. He just kicked off a hot streak, and who knows how many weeks or months it may last. (Dustin Pedroia on power trip)
- Welcome back, Mike Napoli. We’ve missed you and your fantastic beard, unbuttoned jersey and those moonshots you seem to hit every other day. (Napoli poised to be a middle-of-the-order force once again)
- He’s inching ever closer to coming back, and Clay Buchholz knows it. Just a few more days, and the right-hander will be back on the mound for the Red Sox. (Clay Buchholz Explains Why His Rehab Course IS Going Exactly According To Plan)
- Yep, there’s still trading to be done, and the Red Sox shipped Clayton Mortensen to the Kansas City Royals for the speedy outfielder Quintin Berry. (Red Sox trade Clayton Mortensen to Royals for Quintin Berry)
- The Tampa Bay Rays have no time nor patience for Jeremy Hellickson‘s awful pitching in a pennant race, apparently. (Rays send Jeremy Hellickson to the minors)
Hehehehe. Also, hashtag beards.
