GT: A's @ Red Sox - July 30

I am convinced this is exactly what the Red Sox need.

Break up the standard and play a day game on a Thursday. Yes, this is it. This will break the Sox out of their slump and get on a streak. It all starts here. Today. Now -- or, well, 1:35.

Jon Lester will turn it around for the Sox today. Mark my words. Say goodbye to this 4-8 post-All-Star break record. It's a thing of the past after today.

Editor's Note: Of course, if I'm wrong I will deny all of this. This post will be deleted and there shall be no record of this. I can do that, ya' know.
