No starter for Pawtucket yet tonight, but the Charlotte Knights are throwing Charlie Leesman out there.
According to correspondent Jack Horan, the Knights' strength lies in their pitching: "The Knights’ strength lies in its pitching staff, which tied with Indianapolis for first in ERA (3.15) in the regular season... The Red Sox will need to produce hits to overcome Knights pitching, manager Arnie Beyeler said Monday. “They really pitch very well. Their bullpen is lights out. We’re going to have to come out and swing the bats. They’re well balanced all around, they’ve got some power. The bottom line with all these playoff games is pitching.”
Did you know that the Charlotte Knights are the Triple-A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox? How could you be so stupid?
Providence's Tim Britton writes about it, too, evidently under the influence of mushrooms: "WHO KNEW GOETHE COULD SUMMARIZE THE EMOTIONS ENTERING A MINOR-LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES SO WELL? Goethe loved baseball."
Okay, what do I know? Brendan McGair claims that Steven Wright is starting tonight.
All the cool kids have now decided that they need to cover Pawtucket and stink up the press box. Yeah, thanks for this. Let me give you a piece of advice, Junior: Your music make sense to no one... But yourself.
I'll be there, too, just as I always have been.
