It's been a lovely day here in DC and I was out on the front porch with the family this afternoon when the Talking Heads great song "Once in a Lifetime" came on and it just fit perfectly. Life is crazy. I did also hear one of my favourite Boston songs this afternoon, but I'm saving it for tomorrow's game.
With Marco Scutaro still, out, Jose Bautista assumes the leadoff role while John McDonald takes his spot at shortstop. Anyone heard anything about Marco today?
As for pitching matchups, Ricky Romero makes the start against a team that has caused him trouble, while fellow young hurler Clay Buchholz makes the start for Boston.
