Game 81: July 4, 2006
Red Sox (50-31), 6
Devil Rays (37-47), 9
L: Curt Schilling (10-3)
BS: Chad Harville (1)
W: Jon Switzer (1-0)
S: Shawn Camp (4)

The Red Sox are slacking, so I decided to do so as well. Actually, I’ve been preparing for my trip to Chicago this weekend, so writing here has been less of a priority of late.

One point of interest is Casey Fossum vociferously calling for a pop fly in the second inning and promptly missing it entirely. Luckily for him it didn’t glance off him or any of his teammates before bouncing into foul territory. Unfortunately for Alex Gonzalez he swung at the next two pitches to leave Trot Nixon and Gabe Kapler stranded.

Home runs are a growing concern with both Curt Schilling and Josh Beckett. I think it’s about time the advanced scouting team is put to work to see if either pitcher is tipping his pitches or is pitching in too predictable a pattern.

Someone hid Rudy Seanez’s suck in Mike Timlin’s arm. The clubhouse prankster had better stop and stash the suck in the Tampa Bay bullpen where it belongs.

If any of you have been to Chicago, let me know if you have any ideas on cool things to do. Of course I’ll be going to US Cellularmisky Fieldpark for a game and I will be touring Wrigley Field.
