Hope still exists for tonight’s game against the Nationals.

MLB: Washington Nationals at Boston Red Sox
Come round.
Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

The sad-sack Red Sox continue their season tonight against the Nationals at 7:30 p.m. at Fenway Park.

Yesterday was awful for many reasons, the Sox’s perpetual bumbling among them. They lost 10-2 and, in one of many more important details, Chadwick Boseman, who played Jackie Robinson in 42, died on the real Jackie Robinson Day. I’d promise you today was going to be better for the Red Sox, but I can’t. Also, Chris Mazza is starting.

For the Nationals, it’s Sox system legend Aníbal Sánchez, who deserves credit for sticking around this long. Also they have Juan Soto, who’s very good at baseball and younger than you. Yes, you. You’re old. (Luis García, starting at sexond base, the youngest player in baseball, could be your grandchild.)

The Red Sox are the Red Sox. It is what it is:
