Tonight, from what I understand, that new pitcher from Japan is starting for the Sox against Boston College. Can’t imagine anyone in New England will be watching, though. I mean, I Love the 90s is on VH-1 at the same time.

And remember, even though it’s spring training, if he wins, the World Series is ours. If he loses, it’s all hellfire and dragons and guys with pointy wizard hats having their way with your Aunt Lucy.

Also, today is Izzy Alcantara day at Surviving Grady. Feel free to show someone a little Izzy love.
