Boston plays at Kansas City tonight. It’ll be Clay Buchholz against Anthony Lerew. I do this for a living and I try and pay attention, but I have no idea who Anthony Lerew is.
One would suspect the Red Sox are not overly thrilled with the idea of playing a night game in Kansas City and then showing up in NYC around 5 a.m. to play the Yankees that night. To which the Yankees would reply, “Tough noogies, we just made another West Coast trip.”
Meanwhile, doesn’t some HGH maker need to get commercials on ESPN for that game on Sunday?
