Today, I was aware that the game started in the afternoon, since the Royals have to get away for their next victimization, at the hands of the LA Angels (of Anaheim). So I was contented to check the score on my cell phone. Often, the dozens of score-messages I get accumulate in my text-message inbox for a while before I delete them. So when I saw three messages, one saying START 0 Kansas City 0 Boston 0; another saying Kansas City 0 Boston 1; and another saying FINAL Kansas City 0 Boston 1, I just thought I hadn't gotten the messages for this game for some reason, and that these were just last night's messages left in my inbox. Then I checked around when I got home...and apparently it was another one-run special for the Sox this afternoon. Bizarre. What the hell is up with the Red Sox bats?
Boston Crazy Driving has a theory.
Jere has an interesting factoid at the end of his post.
