Boston Sports Tonight!

I need to ask Raquel how to make this a glittery dead Bluejay

Boston Red Sox vs the 1st Place Toronto Blue Jays 7pm

Brian Tallet vs. Tim Wakefield

After the success of the Tampa Bay Satan Rays last year, it was only inevitable that the media slaps the "ARE THEY THIS YEARS RAYS??" tag to the Blue Jays. Let me just say this....they might be. The Blue Jays have always been like one player away from being really good, and have a pitching staff that even without Dustin McGowan, Jesse Litsch and Shaun Marcum is one of the best in the leagues. Roy Halladay would be my "player on another team, that I fucking love", and somehow the Jays have the best offense in the league, in the top 5 in basically everything. And where the hell did Adam Lind come from? The Red Sox on the other hand, have the worst starting pitching in the league, and a cleanup hitter who has hit like three balls into the outfield all season. Wakefield struggled in his last outting against the Angels. This could be a statement series for the Blue Jays and could answer the question, are they contenders or pretenders?

Frivilous Prop Bet- Fed up with David Ortiz's lack of power, the Red Sox pull off a stunning trade, sending Ortiz and Julio Lugo to the Reds for Jay Bruce who changes on his way to the park in the back of Raquel's car. He gets to the game in the 7th inning and promptly replaces JD Drew in the field, who tweaked a hammy rounding first base. Bruce hits a pinch hit home run in the 9th against BlowJob Ryan to win the game.

Series Prop Bet- Tim Wakefield is rocked, allowing 5 runs in 7 innings, and the Red Sox struggle to score runs all night. Ortiz's siesta continues, as he goes 0-4 with three strikeouts. (Sorry the Bostonfail stink hasn't come off my clothes from the weekend)
