Game time is 7:05 on CSN and NESN.
We have lost 13 games in a row to the Boston Red Sox dating back to last season, and we're 0-8 against them this year. You have no idea how badly I want to beat them today. I don't care that my hope is probably futile for today and is completely futile overall. I just want to win today.
We're off Thursday before our big rivalry commences and our pitchers have to bat, which will at least get Javy or Conine out of the lineup.
