I Take It All Back
90-72? More like 72-90 based on Day 1. But maybe it is good luck...like rain on your wedding day.
Kidding aside, I did take two good things away from this game, which were more or less hidden in the blowout result. (1) Bobby Jenks had a solid 9th inning with no walks and a strikeout to start the year. I think the game is 90% half-mental for Bobby, so getting off on the right foot is good for him. (2) The Sox touched up Borowski for two runs in the 9th. So Borowski gets off on the wrong foot. With Cleveland's bullpen problems of 2006, I think getting in the head of their relievers might be key.
So you sit Scott Podsednik...but you play Darrin Erstad? Worked, I guess....
