Last night, Boston overcame Wakefield's struggles, coming all the way back, putting the tying run on second base in the ninth before falling to Minnesota, 9-8.
What's worse, tonight's game featured three first inning runs, and then nothing, as Clay the Wonder Horse had another rough day at the office in a 7-3 loss. That makes 3 out of 4 dropped to the Twinkies.
Baltimore next, and that may perk things up. But if we don't watch it, they'll spank us too.
Fascinating "This American Life" this week, a really detailed and interesting look at the credit crisis. Very well done and very interesting.
