Another Sox win last night!! They trumped the A's thanks to an error by Oakland shortstop Bobby Crosby and a GIGANTIC 3-run homer by Jason Varitek. Derek Lowe gave up his necessary 5 runs but still walked away with the W, perhaps thanks in part to the players wearing their red jerseys which they were wearing last time Lowe got a win...when was that? I'm having a hard time remembering, must have been awhile ago. Anastacio Martinez looked bad last night, giving up consecutive hits and getting pulled from the game in the seventh with two men on. Embree and Timlin were able to get the Sox out of the inning, however, and Keith Foulke closed it out. How great has he been this year?? Hot damn!! I love watching the A's lose. I hope all their turd fans are in absolute agony.
Sox go for their second consecutive sweep tonight, Arroyo vs. Mulder. Wish I didn't have to work!!
Oh, and a cool thing: I don't know if you've heard about the nightmare going on in the Dominican and Haiti right now, but flash flooding and mudslides have killed over 600 people there, with up to 400 still unaccounted for. Pedro Martinez has apparently contacted some of his fellow ballplayers and countrymen with the idea to set up a relief fund for the families affected by this disaster. Very, very cool thing to do. You go, Pete.
