Some side notes:
Conor Gillaspie had another rock solid game behind the scenes today. Good defense, good at bats, desperately needed walks, and a double to boot. Kudos to the Sox scouting department for finding this kid. I just wish they had found him before the Sox gave Keppinger a 3 year deal. Nothing fancy about Conor, just a really solid baseball player. We need more players like him.
Tyler Flowers followed up his solid game in Minnesota by looking completely inept at the plate tonight. He just can't seem to string good games together. He came up multiple times in RISP situations and lunged at pitches way out of the zone in every at bat. Oh well, at least he made a good tag at the plate.
The very existence of flamethrowers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, "You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done." -George Carlin
