a lot of things don't make sense to me right now. one is why we have so many half days for school (i don't argue it, though, 'cause i enjoy getting home early). another is how if steroids are supposed to make a player better, then why are a-rod's sans-steroids numbers a lot better than his with-steroids numbers (he's not the only one who i've seen this happen to). and finally, i don't get how the sox could sign someone in the offseason and then let them go before the season started. josh bard got the boot, so george kottaras will be varitek's backup, and i realize we don't need a lot of backups but we just signed the guy!
whatever. red sox are off, royals and mariners at 9:05pm, and lincecum is back in the action for today's start vs. the cubs at 4:05pm (and to clarify things, he didn't have the flu, he had bronchitis.)
