Hey look at that! A WIN!

The strangest thing about the win today was that John Lackey got the W... and he was DREADFUL.

Meanwhile Yankees starter Phil Hughes was grotesque and Boone Logan was simply awful.

Tub of Goo Bartolo Colon had the best pitching performance of the day. Going 4 1/3 innings, letting up 2 hits and striking out 5.

NATURALLY Colon got the loss!

I think I speak for Red Sox fans when I say "I'LL TAKE IT!"

Let's gleefully update the tally.


April 8 - 9-6 win against the Yankees. (The Sox end their 6 game losing streak with a slugfest. John Lackey stinks but Phil Hughes stinks even more.)


April 1 - 9-5 loss in Texas. (The Sox tie Opening Day in the 8th with an Ortiz homer only to have Bard implode and the Sox let up 4 in the bottom of the 8th.)
April 5 - 3-1 loss in Cleveland. (The Sox drop their 4th straight as the bats are dead in Cleveland.)
April 7 - 1-0 loss in Cleveland. (Sox blow a great Lester performance on a squeeze bunt and Darnell McDonald overrunning the bag to end the game.)

Look at that. -2.
Not too shabby.

Before you know it the Sox will be back to .500.

And their offense might be getting back into a groove.

Who knows? Maybe the Red Sox are like Fast Eddie Felson in The Color of Money.
And (spoiler alert) maybe the Sox can mirror the last line of the movie!
