Well, the weather gods are not being kind. The Sox and Rangers actually managed to play six innings last night in treacherous conditions, and I must say, Tito Francona's stalling strategy leaves quite a bit to be desired. Rangers were all over Matt Clement and the Sox, winning 6-0 when the game was called at around 10 p.m. Papi was in the batter's box and needed to have windshield wipers attached to his batting helmet. An ugly night all around, and who knows if we're going to see any more ball this weekend. Rangers come back to Fenway in early June, so we may be looking at a couple of doubleheaders if the weekend's games are postponed.
In the meantime, if you heard about Rick Sutcliffe's drunken escapades during the week, here's the video, courtesy of the wiseguys at Deadspin. Not quite on the level of Joe Namath/Suzy Kolber but still pretty damn hilarious. Unlike Sut, stay dry this weekend.
