After Jake, Matt and the boys in Boston, its off to a visit with the New York Yankees for 3 game series, from there on the 5th of September we open a four game series with the Orioles before heading back to The Cell.

Enjoy the day off, and will see you  on the field in  Boston

That was a super game with Jose Quintana getting the win and Addison Reed the save. Final Score was Sox – 5 and the Twinkies – 2.

Chris Sale will be in the office tomorrow for game three.

I have been off sick with a migraine for the last few days and will be doing some Catch-Up games for you. One of my Sorority Sisters gifted me a subscription to MLB. TV so I am able to see all the games and catch up on those I might miss.

See you on the field
