    Early fireworks at Fenway

    At least Vaz did a great job of standing on third and clapping instead of scoring on Franchy’s single.

    No excuses. No offense. No defense. No direction.

    6/28 Because somebody had to do it - Wacha vs. Strickling

    6/13 Finals Game 5 @ GSW

    Klay must have created an angle.
