3.16.07 PawSox v. Rochester Red Wings - The Providence-Worcester Turnpike
Pawtucket WINS! 4-0 in 5 and a half. Rainout!
There was a whole two-sentence Pawtucket Red Sox report in the paper this morning. Chad Spann got a three-run homer and Jon Lester pitched two scoreless innings. Lester is a spotlight-hogger. I know that sounds callous because of his medical problems, but I'm not saying it's his fault. I'm saying that we all know what the real story is: Abe Alvarez picked up the win and even pitched better than Lester. Lester gave up a hit and Alvarez did not. Barry Hertzler picked up the save. Hertzler's Magic 8-Ball says: 'OUTLOOK NOT SO GOOD'.
So far, I cannot really root for Chad Spann. He is like a kitten hiding in a laundry hamper. No, strike that: he is boring. I'll have to talk to him and see what's going on.
In other news, I'll be having lunch with Jim Rice in a couple of weeks. He is the special guest at the PawSox luncheon. It's gonna be great, I think.
Let's be careful out there today.
