Now That the Yankees Lost to the A’s, Let’s See What the New Guy’s Got.

Judging from the camo shirt under his Jersey, this guy will fit in to the clubhouse just fine.

The Red Sox are going to win more than one game after the All Star break. Sure, it wasn’t impressive, other than the catch by Ellsbury and Pedroia’s diving stab in the fourth, but it was a win, and something to build on. Penny was good enough to stay, and we’ve got Lester going tonight.  Hopefully building on that will include scoring some runs for Lester tonight.

More importantly tonight we get our first look at the guy who replaced Kotsay on the roster. Adam Laroche will be playing first tonight and batting sixth (giving The Beard a well deserved day off), and as we’ve seen with last year’s July deal, guys love getting out of Pittburgh and into the real baseball of Fenway. Plus, this guy is notoriously nasty in the second half. So LaRoche (who, dispite his last name, is not French and loves his freedom fries, freedom dressing and freedom toast as much as any red blooded American) will get a greeting from the Fenway Faithful tonight and will hopefully show his pleasure by helping the Sox score some f#$%ing runs for once.

And the Yanks already lost to the A’s (that Nomar guy helped us out), so it’s already a good day.

Go Sox.

Done.
