Wild Win North of the Border
I wasn’t in Toronto, but I was keeping tabs on that game tonight and it was a wild one. David Ortiz went deep, so that means the Red Sox must have won. They are now 16-2 when the big man goes deep. It’s a good sign that he is starting to swing the bat again. The whole dynamic of the offense is different when Ortiz is the caliber of hitter he was in June and July, rather than April and May and the first half of August.
Speaking of getting locked in again, Jason Bay clubs another one tonight. His hot streaks can last a long time, as we witnessed earlier this year, so that’s big.
Beckett was due for an outing like this. I wonder if it is a coincidence that it comes on a night Jason Varitek was not behind the plate.
Hearty congratulations to the Pedroia family on the birth of son Dylan. I’m sure Dustin will be explaining the art of a laser show to his young boy in no time.
All for now.
Hope all is well.
