One down....

Well, Daisuke got it done for us in a big way! After loading the bases on three walks in the first, we carried a no-hitter into the 7th (thanks, Chip Carey for jinxing that one for us). As usual, it wasn't a stress-free outing - I was on the edge of my seat most of the way. Still, Daisuke and the bullpen got it done, and the Red Sox won 2-0.

I had hoped we could split these first two in Tampa, and the game I most doubted was last night's. I now realize how big that game one victory was. It pretty much takes home field advantage away from the Rays, and sets us up well for the rest of the series. I don't want to be greedy, but taking game two tonight would put us at a huge advantage. And it doesn't hurt that we've got "Commander Kick-Ass" on the mound for us.....

Yes, time for Josh Beckett to retake his rightful place as leader of the free world - er, as Ace of the Staff!

Go Sox

Beth, I honestly think he's hurt still. He just doesn't look the same. Hope I'm wrong, but I just have a feeling.

And Chip Caray needs to start taking his meds.
