It's nice to see The Large Father smiling again. After a rough start to the season, Papi has started to come on lately, culminating in his opposite field, over the Green Monster Grand Slam in tonight's game vs. Texas.
Throw in 5 plus from Daisuke, a Munchkin bomb, and Aardsma getting out of a bases loaded jam in the 8th, you've got a good thing going.
Matsuzaka wins his 4th game, Papi with 5 RBI tonight, and Jacoby Ellsbury could probably outrun a cheetah in a foot race. Sox win 11-3 and sit in first place in the AL East at 11-7; going into the season, with the trip to Japan and the schedule, I would have taken a .500 record as a positive.
I'm glad they don't listen to me.
