The Baseball Desert

Thursday, May 24, 2007


The bad news: the Sox lost the series against the Yankees.

The good news: they're still 9 1/2 games up in the division and continue to have the best record in baseball.

The good news, part II: they now head to Texas, where they'll face a team with the worst record in baseball (18-29) and some fairly lukewarm pitchers: Brandon McCarthy (4-4, 5.82), Vicente Padilla (2-6, 5.52) and Kameron Loe (1-4, 6.38).

Time to put some more daylight between first and second place in the AL East, methinks.
