I suppose two hits are better than one hit.
You’ll have to forgive me, I woke up to see that CSNNE (Comcast Sports New England) was off the air. I don’t know if it was technical difficulties or whatever but the screen went black at 7AM and hasn’t come back.
Remember a couple weeks back when the Red Sox finally hit the .500 mark? Yeah, they had that poll question over on ESPN.com asking if now that the Sox hit the .500 mark would they dip back below. I was in the minority that said they’d absolutely fall back. Well I was right.
Heading into yesterday’s game the team headed into their match-up against the Orioles the Red Sox had finally dug themselves back up to the .500 mark. I wanted that poll question to pop again so I could say they’d fall below again.
That’s why they play the games. To prove me right.
The Sox welcomed Youkilis off the DL with a solo home run. That was all the offense for the Sox. One other hit and a loss that put them back below .500.
I was at dinner last night and noticed the folks over at NESN were nice enough to put the Sox ahead of the Yankees in the standings even though both teams have 21-21 records. Don’t the Yankees own the tie-breaker since they have the head-to-head better record?
Oh well. Sox lost anyways. Dropped back below .500. Yankees won and went above .500. What does that mean. Sox own last place all by themselves.
Great read over on Yahoo! about teams buying their way to the top of the standings and how it’s not working. Check it out if you have a few minutes.
I’ll be watching the Celtics tonight. Hopefully the Celts close it out. Back tomorrow with a recap.
