Blame Canada

Okay, granted the Red Sox are playing in their 3rd country in two weeks. Granted, they are probably suffering from massive jet lag. Granted, they had spring training cut short by a week and are still trying to blow the cobwebs out. But...

I hate those pesky Blue Jays. They've always been a pain in the side of the Red Sox. And this weekend has proven that it will continue to be true in '08. In both games, the 6th inning has proven to be our undoing. And I can't place all the blame in the lap of our bullpen. Our offense has truly - excuse me - sucked.

Our one hope arrives tomorrow at 1pm. Josh Beckett - our stopper, our Commander Kick Ass - will be making his first start of the year. He's coming off a rough spring - he was on the DL due to back spasms and hip issues. But he seems to be healthy and whole tomorrow. He's going to be allowed five innings, it's been reported. And he's going up against THEIR ace, Doc Holliday.

If we could salvage one game - if Josh can be our Ace again - if we can head home with a winning season - well, we might be able to put this long, at time nightmarish, road trip behind us. Until tomorrow!

After reading about today's game, I am as ready for them to get back home as they are.

The Blue Jays own us right now. Hopefully the Commander rights the ship tomorrow.
