Happy Fourth of July!
Along with Memorial Day and Labor Day, this is one of those great baseball holidays where there is always a full slate of games. Hopefully you will see a good one today.
When was the last time Terry Francona spent a Fourth of July doing anything but being at a baseball game? “Probably when I was about three years old,” Francona said.
The sun was nice enough to grace us with its presence today.
No Big Papi in the Boston lineup today. The DH is simply getting the day off. Rocco Baldelli is serving as the DH.
