Happy Thursday everyone. The Red Sox actually got a win on Thursday, snapping a nine-game streak and hopefully sparking a run. Not towards the playoffs, of course, but at least towards respectability. The bar is low. They’ll look to make good on that this weekend with a four-game set against the Orioles that gets underway tonight at 7:30 PM ET. They’ll have Nathan Eovaldi on the mound tonight with Asher Wojciechowski going for Baltimore. There’s also a bunch of day baseball today including a contest between the White Sox and Tigers at 2:00 PM ET on ESPN 2. In the NBA, there are four playoff games on ESPN starting at 1:00 PM ET, and in the NHL there are a pair of first round games on NBCSN with the Islanders and Stars both looking to finish off their respective series. Use this space to discuss whatever you’d like. As always, just be nice to each other.
