Humber is Perfect, Red Sox. Don’t Ruin It


Philip Humber will make his first start after perfection tonight against the Boston Red Sox. The Sox have dropped a couple of games in a row while the Red Sox are coming in off of a sweep of the Twins at Target Field. Perfect. I’m sure as I type this every member of the Sox is squaring around in front of a mirror, trying to perfect those wonderful bunting skills. Perfect.

Tonight’s Lineup:

1.Alejandro De Aza – CF
2.Alexei – SS
3.Dunn – DH
4.Paulie – 1B
5.AJ – C
6.Rios – RF
7.Viciedo – LF
8.Morel 3B
9.Beckham – 2B

You read correctly. Yesterday’s game took so long that Paul Konerko’s foot healed itself. Paul now embarks on the journey to 500. Can he get there?

On the mound for the Red Sox is Felix Doubront. He’s shown a love of the strikeout so it should be interesting to see if the White Sox can hold off on that which cannot be hit and put solid swings on balls that can. First game of a 4 game series, if a tally doesn’t go in the win column tonight I’m going to be looking over my shoulder for that no-hitter curse.
