Something just feels off about this season. Celebrating Independence Day in Canada is more of the same. Perhaps this incongruous turn is what flips this weird season around for the defending world champs.

Looking forward to the Red Sox creating fireworks with their bats and showing the Canadian heathens what American Independence Day is all about. Rockets red glare, bombs bursting in air and all the rest.

When I think of the enormous optimism required to begin a revolution, the combination of desperation and courage, then I become ashamed of myself for giving up on the American political situation and even, on occasion, baseball.
Happy Independence Day, all!
And Geaux, Sox!

definitely feels weird to have a July 4th game at a regular time, 7pm, and probably with no fanfare

Let the whole world know that today
Is a day of reckoning.
Let the weak be strong, let the right be wrong
Roll the stone away, let the guilty pay
It's Independence Day.

the Blue Jays are protecting Stroman from some minor injury OR keeping him 100% before trading him, so we luckily avoid him. another bullpen game for them.

Velazquez is going. he was great as a 6th starter last year, not so much this year but beats Josh A Smith.

Sox could homer every inning tonight, and it might not be enough.

what is this guy hitting when not against us again? and then he actually flicks a ball decently outside of the zone solidly out to left-center.
