Well I'm stuck at work so this will be a relatively short one. Today is the Boston Marathon which is why the game is starting so early. We have dropped two in a row which means we are 3-6 over our past nine. Not exactly lighting the world on fire since we left home. It would do a world of good to win this last series and gain a bit of momentum to get home and take on the Yankees and Rays.
Today is one where we should have the pitching advantage with Romero and Dice-K taking the mound. Granted of course, nothing every comes easy. While Dice-K is struggling so far this year he has traditionally dominated the Jays. Ricky is off to a great start for the Jays and looks to take his second win in 4 starts.
|2011 - Ricky Romero||1-1||3||3||1||0||0||0||21.2||16||7||4||1||4||20||1.66||.92|
|2011 - Daisuke Matsuzaka||0-2||2||2||0||0||0||0||7.0||14||10||10||3||5||4||12.86||2.71|
As mentioned I am stuck at work at the moment, and I am writing this the night before so I have no idea what the lineups are going to be. Johnny Mac could be in LF for all I know at the moment.
