It’s our third game in a span of roughly 24 hours. Only this one means much, much more. Because we don’t want to fall much further down the ladder in the East. And as I’ll be taking in this game from my office, every Lackey walk, surrendered home run, or missed scoring opportunity for the Sox will likely result in me threatening a co-worker. And I just don’t need to deal with that today.

So let’s have a win. In fact, how ’bout an easy one. A laugher. I’ll take that.
