Took the kids to the pool tonight, just got 'em all to bed, and I look up and the game is about to start. So: short and sweet tonight.
I hope Papi hits one in that swimming pool in the outfield at Chase Field, JD treats Stephen like every older brother should by beating him down, and Beckett wins #9 tonight.
I need the memory of the first 3 games in Oakland wiped out of my mind like The Fresh Prince and TLJ did in "Men in Black" ASAP. Those low scoring games this past week? Just a blip on the run scoring radar, and tonight's the night they start on another swath of destruction through the NL like they did last year.
Lugo goes 4-4, Ortiz and Manny go back to back, and Beckett goes 8 strong innings.
Hey: it COULD happen.
