Game 37, Red Sox at Mariners
Beckett v Olson. 7:10.
As much as I’m an M’s fan, it’s going to take a lot to produce a better moment than John Lackey getting tossed in two pitches. That’s just cool. Interestingly, the Sox-M’s game wasn’t the longest odds of the day in Vegas: you could get that for the Mets over SF, NY over the Twins, and Tampa over Cleveland (Twins… value bet?).
Anyway, my point: sure, Olson got called up just over a week ago. But last night the M’s squeaked out a game they didn’t have much business winning. No reason they couldn’t do it again. Hopefully it won’t involve getting Ichiro! plunked.
