JD serves the second and final day of his suspension today … we are scoreless over our last 23 innings and are 0-22 in scoring position the last two days … amazingly, we are hitting .281 on the road and .216 at home … things have to change! We need the weather to hold off, we need to win this game and we need to score a few runs along the way. Is that asking for too much on a Saturday afternoon? With 48 home runs, Jermaine Dye is tied with Tampa’s Carlos Pena for most home runs in the American League since Opening Day 2008.
The books and cards are complete, our top amateur scouts are in town and the draft war room is set up for Tuesday’s First-Year Player Draft. The Sox pick 23rd in the first round and our scouting staff will basically be in meetings from now until the first pick discussing players, comparing notes and evaluating the country’s top talent. It’s a fun time to just be a fly on the wall …
