The Red Sox got shut out last night by John Lackey. It was awesome.

2 days ago, the Yankees pummeled the Twins 7-2. Hardly awesome.

 

Starting in like an hour 10 minutes ago, the Yankees and Twinkies (this matches up well) will try again in Game 2 of the ALDS as Nick Blackburn takes the bump vs AJ Burnett.

 

Prediction: I hate AJ Burnett.

Starting in about 6 hours or so Emotdamn_medium (I need to stop reading the Sunday game times) 3 hours or so, the Angels will try to head into Fenway up 2-0 after stymieing the Boston bats. Josh Beckett and his multiple epidurals in his back will try and shut down Torii Hunter and the rest of the Halos while Jered Weaver continues to be an under-appreciated stud.

 

 

Prediction: I don't particularly care for the Angels OF, but then again, I don't really like Boston at all either, so therefore Vlad will hit a home run off of his shoelaces.

Discussion question: The Sahhhhx traded Anibal Sanchez and Hanley Ramirez (and a couple of inconsequential pitchers) for Josh Beckett, Guillermo Mota and Mike Lowell. Looking at the Sox now and the Marlins now, was it a good trade for both sides?

 

Root for who you will, play nicely, don't make me come in there.
