yay alex is off the DL! except hillman might not want him to start in the rain just in case he screws up his leg again slipping in the mud. 'cause that would stink.
(4:02pm- hillman didn't have alex start in the first game, but he's probably saving alex for tonight so the team can have at least some strength. or at least that's what i'd like to think. it was probably 'cause it won't rain later...)
and about yesterday's sox game, i lied about the pitching matchup. it was actually wakefield against purcey (who apparently has a size 18 shoe. that is a massive shoe.), and the sox blanked the jays 7-zip. yay sox!
but apparently ellsbury did something to his quad and has been 'day-to-day' since the 10th (and he didn't play on his birthday, but that was partially 'cause there was no game...). if he goes on the DL, i will not be a happy camper! get well soon ellsbury!
(3:43pm- omg i saw a totally hilarious birthday card in the grocery store today, and too bad that it's past my birthday 'cause otherwise i would've bought it for myself. it was that awesome.
outside: I bet the Angels were really smiling the day you were born.
inside: They came back to beat Detroit 10-9, 2 outs in the 9th, with a walk-off grand slam.
(3:46pm- ooh, and lincecum is pitching against the padres today. go lincecum! AAMOF, he's tied for 1st in the nl for strikeouts, is 2nd in ERA and i'm pretty sure he has the best record in the nl. or at least that's what it said in the paper this morning.)
(3:58pm- the sox lost the first game of the doubleheader, 8-1, but george kottaras scored the run in his major league debut. yay kottaras!)
(4:01pm- this rain has really screwed up the schedule, huh? almost everyone has a doubleheader today. weird.)
