I had some problems with blogger over the weekend and wasn't able to cover everything that went down around the league. But I would be remiss if I didn't at least mention the staggering Red Sox-Marlins game last Friday. The Sox, of course, scored ten runs before making an out in the top of the first. Check out Ed Cossette's take over at the revamped Bambino's Curse.
Of course, I was more excited about the Marlins come-from-behind win against the Sox on Saturday. And yes, I did roll my eyes and curse a lot about Gabe Kapler's performance over the weekend. Love it while it lasts, Sox Nation, cause it ain't going to last through September.
Give this to the Red Sox: they have been anything but dull. I don't know the count, but they must have played some of the most dramatic, thrilling, (not to mention heart-breaking) and exciting games in baseball this year. If the could fix the pitching, they could be real trouble for the Yankees and everybody else in the league.
As the Sox gear up for the big weekend serious in the Bronx, they have moved Mr. Kim to the bullpen, hoping to avoid any further bullpen disasters.
