Hope everyone had a good All-Star Break. Congratulations to Chris Sale on getting the win in the All Star game.

Rumor has it that Jake Peavy has returned and will be the starter for the game on Saturday. John Danks is on the mound for the game today. That rumor about has been confirmed, with a press release from the Sox, Jake IS the STARTER for the Saturday game.

Tomorrow is Jake Peavy returning to the mound, after a stint on the 15 day disabled list for a cracked rib.

Drink plenty of fluids and stay cool

See you at The Cell
