THE VIEW FROM THE CROWS NEST
It was nice to win a series, even nicer to win two in a row, especially so against the Mets and a couple of their young hurlers that everyone thinks so highly of. Now, we face the Bosox, they're a serious team for serious fans. I have no idea on if we caught the Mets on their way down or if there's actually some evidence of the plane being pulled out of its nosedive. We'll have to wait and see how the lads fare against those Beantowners and then check the tea leaves once again. While expectations are low, I hope to be pleasantly surprised.
Friday: Patrick Corbin (4-11/5.37/1.61) vs David Price (9-8/4.34/1.28)
Anyone here who doesn't think Pat is broken, please raise your hand. Okay, now that I am writing to myself we have to wonder if Rubby comes back this year if Patrick doesn't get shut down. I'm certainly wondering about it. Put him on the 60 day DL with a broken psyche. It appears that Pat's innate abilities are being held hostage by the Win Kong. Perhaps we need to send in Jack Burton.
Saturday: Archie Bradley (4-7/4.80/1.51) vs Clay Buchholz (4-9/5.64/1.54)
I think we have a shot in this game. Call me a cockeyed optimist, but I think we're going to see a good outing from him. I have no evidence whatsoever to back up this feeling, but perhaps I simply took a hit off of a six demon bag....
Sunday: Zack Greinke (11-3/3.67/1.15) vs Rick Porcello (15-3/3.40/1.08)
This should be an awesome game, hope we can all wake up early enough to see it and enjoy our favorite beverage of choice.
Porcello - 3.1, Steven Wright - 2.5, David Price 1.6
Mookie Betts - 4.4, Xander Bogaerts - 3.9, Jackie Bradley Jr. 3-8
Zach of Greinke - 2.7... no one left on the team above one. Although Corbin has managed to reached a -1.1 to match Mssr Miller for futility amongst our starters.
Jake Lamb - 3.5, Jean Segura 3.4 and Paul Goldschmidt - 2.9
FOOD TRUCK FANTASIES
I predict tacos and Jumbo Jacks... pizza.. well, lets wait and see.
