What is this "Red Sox blow out" you speak of?
I don't believe it.
The Red Sox actually won a blow out game.
As in "the game was not in doubt late."
As in "the Red Sox took a 13 run lead into the 9th inning."
As in "they were able to rest Bard, Okajima and Papelbon in the game."
As in "no need to update the Teeth Grinder/Dodged Bullet tally."
Now the Red Sox did everything in their power to MAKE it interesting. Buchholz struggled in the 6th.
Schoeneweis let up 4 in the 9th to make his ERA ugly.
But after the ugly weekend in Baltimore, it is nice to see the Red Sox unload, pad some stats (four players had 3 or more RBI) and Adrian Beltre got his first Red Sox homer. Even Bill Hall hit one out!
A stress free victory... against a team a team that has won 5 of 6 division titles no less.
I can get used to victories like this.
(I am not counting on them, but I can get used to them.)
