So Cashner makes his return. It will be mildly hilarious if the Os hit him. For fans of irony.
I look forward to Remy pronouncing the name of the O's pitcher: Wojciechowski. (thank goodness for copy/paste)
The game is scheduled to begin at 1:05. I, for one, would not mind a Heat Delay.
Geaux Sox, etc.

Have tickets but bailing,
Ditto. Went to a Philadelphia Union game last night and I thought my son was going to actually just cease to be, melting down in front of the seat in a puddle on the concrete. He was miserable. I can't be ruining baseball like that. Gonna be in the pool today instead and will put the game on the radio.

When I was a kid, there was lots more golf on TV. (that wasn't a good thing.) My friends and I all used the phrase 'TV tester', which as most of you probably know, is a 5' putt in front of a national audience. Today's game is a TV tester for the Sox. Tampa may be fading, but we're 3 games behind Cleveland and Oakland, and we haven't shown much. If Cashner is shit again, I'm going to have to start paying less attention, because their mediocrity is breaking my heart.

Never heard of a TV Tester. Is that if your favorite golfer doesn’t make the putt, you kick the TV in?

That's what I feel like now, but what we meant then was an athletic thing that you 'should' be able to do easily, but had the added pressure of public/media scrutiny. Front end of a one-and-one free throw, easy ground ball one step to your glove side, receiving a weaker 2nd serve in tennis. My friends and I used it a lot, although the only media scrutiny at our events was how smart-ass we were with each other.

Living in TX definitely has changed what "hot" is. Usually from late May until early October it's basically 95-100 every day. And, no.... it's not "dry heat". Austin is pretty fucking humid and we've had a lot of rain this year so it's extra miserable. When I hear/read people from back in New England and New York complaining about the heat, I gotta laugh. That said... I never thought that a a winter day that hits 35 would feel absolutely frigid. We adapt. 105 is the new 90. 35 is the new 20

Grew up in ET for 25 years and have now lived in Pennsylvania for 13. Bodies change. Anything above 80 now is hot, back in Texas that’d be a cool summer day.

It’s all perspective. Well and many here don’t have A/C.

Just signing on... without looking at any stats, I have to believe Trey Mancini has owned the Sox as much as anybody.

Okay, having put that out there, let me find some stats...

I would plan on swinging the bat....this ump is going to call anything close a strike (can't say I blame him)

The age-old question: what pitcher in the history of baseball had the most dominating, unhittable stuff of all time, Nolan Ryan, Pedro Martinez, or Asher Wojciechowski?

So, seven of Boston's nine outs are through strike outs? Who is this guy for Baltimore?

I was at the Dodgers game last night and Kershaw had a start like this -- 5 K's through 2 and 7 through 3. Left with a 6-0 lead in the 7th and the Marlins came back on the Dodgers bullpen to tie it up in the 8th...before their own bullpen coughed it right back and the Dodgers won 10-6.

I could totally see that happening today (with the Orioles playing the part of the Dodgers)
