Curt Schilling and the Red Sox prepare to face the second place Baltimore Orioles tonight. Yeah, hard to believe, but true. I was hoping for some pregame quotes over at 38 pitches, but all is quiet over there. I guess Curt will let Mr. Splittie do the talking tonight.
The Sox were a rather lofty 15-3 against the O’s last season, with Baltimore pitchers posting a 6.99 ERA against the Sox. The Orioles will go with Daniel Cabrera, much to the delight of the Red Sox. Cabrera is 1-6 with an ERA over 9 in his 8 starts against Boston. He lost all 3 outings last season versus the Sox.
Meanwhile, the LAST PLACE Yankees (I will enjoy it as long as it lasts) were rained out, so in the basement they will stay. Life is good.
