Well believe me, I wish I could eat my words, but...I told you so about Derek Lowe. Not that you, Anonymous Sox Fan, needed to be told that Lowe's pitching thusfar this season has by and large resembled a steaming heap of hot garbage. Tonight's game vs. the D-Bags seemed to be more about which pitching staff was worse, not which team was better. Zambrano had to leave the mound with a visible shit-stain on the seat of his pants in the shape of Florida after the fourth inning, came back in the fifth to suck a little more, then left the game permanently. Derek Lowe didn't hang around that long...he left having pitched 2 2/3 innings during which he was tagged for six runs. Against the DEVIL RAYS, ladies and gentlemen. The offense did an alright job trying to catch up, but it just didn't happen for the Sox tonight. It's okay. Sox are going back to Boston to face Roy Halladay for the quadrillionth-millionth time this season, whoop-dee-do, why do Canadians have baseball teams?
