Doubleheader Doublegoodness. There's no single gum like it.

Game One: The Future Is Well, Not Dim.

  • Clay, while not doing a tremendous job of missing bats, still showed the promise that makes him our top prospect. The 5 Ks seemed to come easy, and I was impressed that he made it 6 innings without an overwhelming pitch count.
  • Offensive lovin' in this game. A true team effort, as the only player who reached 3 times (out of 15 total baserunners) was J.D. Drew.
  • Awful error. Awful. You know the one.
  • Oki and Paps did what they do best: shut the door. I would've thought the Sox might've mixed and matched here, and maybe Tito would've if Gagne weren't here. But these two are our best relievers. Efforts should have been made to make sure one was available for the nightcap.
  • We're going to miss Dougie. I can't believe I just typed that.
