It's Patriot's Day! For those of you not in greater Boston, it commemorates the battles of Lexington and Concord, which were fought in 1775. It's also Marathon Monday. Lotsa people taking a slightly long jog. Leonardo da Vinci was born on this day. Emma Watson. Jeromy Burnitz, who struck out a lot (as did I, in other ventures). And it's our favorite neck tattoo, Hector Velazquez, pitching against Dan Straily, who hasn't had much luck pitching with a bird on his uni. It's supposed to rain. All in all a typical Monday. The XIX in the tattoo is his son's birthday. Win this and we win the series. That would be cool.
