Well, that wasn't pretty. The Red Sox did everything right last night, and the Rockies looked rusty as hell in a 13-1 blowout. Josh Beckett went seven strong with nine K's, and pretty much everybody in Boston's lineup hit a line-drive double, singled, and walked throughout the course of the game. Colorado starter Jeff Francis lasted only four innings, but at least he got out of the game before the floodgates opened in the fifth. That's when the Sox put together seven runs — all with two outs — on a parade of line drives off of Franklin Morales. Morales got the hook, and Ryan Speier came to the rescue… by issuing three bases-loaded walks. And that's when I turned the TV off.
Anyway, in lieu of a still from Deliverance, this post is accompanied with video of Joe Buck dropping "Jub-Jub" on Chris Myers, courtesy Home Run Derby. Myers joins an animated iguana as the only being ot get that moniker, while Conan O'Brien's charity of choice will soon be $1000 richer. If there's such a thing as a "rich" charity.
