Checking In...

Couple of quick in-game notes on a slow Friday afternoon...

- J.D. Drew misplayed a first inning flyball into a run, but made up for it in the home half with a triple. Sox have given young Clay a comfortable cushion with a 6-1 lead in the bottom of the 2nd. Papi went deep in the first.

- Wily Mo is officially No Mo. He was traded today to the Washington Nationals for cash and a player to be named. Whenever I think of Wily, I'll remember the moonshot home runs, the dramatic hit against the Orioles in the first game that Gagne blew, and the adventures with the glove.

- The Sox' shortage at catcher could become more visible than they ever hoped it would be. Doug Mirabelli started today's first game, and hurt himself running the bases. They probably won't play Varitek in both games, so may need to call someone up to take Dougie's place. Depending on the severity, this could be interesting. Only in Boston do we get all out of whack over a .220 hitting catcher who plays one day a week. Hey, it's what we do.
