Okay, so Cincinnati in last in their division, worse even than the Houston Asstros, sporting a .413 win percentage (am I the only person who's bothered by the fact that the word "percentage" is used all the time in baseball to describe things which aren't even remotely percentages? Probably.) But that was another nice, solid win. A great outing by our starter, bouncing back from his worst of the year, and solid hitting. Johnny Damon continues to amaze -- I mean, even back in his KC days I thought of him as a great hitter, but I never expected him to become one of the elites in the league. Particularly with Brian Roberts showing signs of cooling down. (Man, now we're never re-signing Damon.)
A win tonight would be very, very nice. Wells vs. Hudson (Luke, thankfully). Unless the early-season Wells suddenly shows up, Sox should be in good shape. The .500 baseball has been going on since May 6 -- that's 34 games. Sox haven't won three in a row since May 9-11. Yikes.
