the sox lost again yesterday (3-2. they had it and they blew it in the 9th). the royals beat the rangers 7-2 so yay except alex went 0 for 3 and they replaced him. (i know, this is all repeats)
as for right now, the rays are kicking the sox's butts 12-4 in the 8th (ellsbury is 1 for 3 with a ribbie), and the royals are beating the giants 2-0 but alex isn't playing.
speaking of the giants, i was looking at my random feeds, and i was glad to see that the giants signed lincecum to a 1-year, $650,000 deal. this makes me happy for 2 reasons: 1) this way, i know he's not going to the yankees, and 2) his deal isn't that extravagant. i mean, hello, lincecum won the cy young, so most people would probably get all cocky and expect millions, but he went with a modest $650K. don't get me wrong, that's still a lot of money and more than i'll ever get in a year, but it's nice to see that someone awesome has some restraint (unlike a certain former red sox outfielder who refused 2 years and $45mil from the dodgers AGAIN).
