well, the sox losing to the orioles 6-2 wasn't very nice (they're currently beating toronto 4-3), but the royals retaliated from the routing by the d-backs by beating the giants 11-3. alex had a ribbie single, which is cool, but you know how some people just have "their day"? yesterday was apparently teahen's day. he was on fire. he wasn't just on fire, he was on FI-YAH. he went 3 for 4 with 2, count 'em, 2 homeruns, 4 runs and 2 ribbies. yay for teahen even though he sometimes replaces alex!
also the not-so-"haha niiiice" department, lincecum got scratched from today's start 'cause he has the flu. i'm still not sure how someone can get the flu in march (or in july, for that matter, 'cause he wasn't able to pitch in the all-star game 'cause he got hospitalized for it), but i hope he feels better soon.
