So David Wells gives up two solo shots in the first, then pitches seven and a third innings of shutout ball. I didn't see that coming. I was terrified at first. But I guess there's a chance that Wells doesn't suck. If this becomes the norm for him, I think the Red Sox will have the AL East in the hat once we get Schilling back. I mean hell, if you can hold the Yankees to two runs, then you will win ballgames if you've got the muscle that the Sox have in the batting order, especially now that Renteria is starting to come back into his own. And we can expect better numbers from most of the rest of them down the stretch ("we," for the purposes of this post, refers to me, Saije, Mickerdoo, and anyone else who knows who Big Papi is, and/or has ever asked themselves, "What would Johnny Damon Do?"
I am, in short, happy with the results of tonights game, and happier still that I was actually able to watch it out here in Chicago.
