David Ortiz has been emblematic of the Red Sox this season; such high hopes, but so little to show for it. The hard truth is, things may not get any better.

Sox Game Not Televised In My Area

Jason Varitek and Heidi Watney

So…I listened to Joe Castiglione and the great Dave O’Brien on the radio. They do some fine work, but no TV (the game was apparently on NESN Plus) means no Heidi Watney. Damn Bruins!

Anywho, we saw the good, the bad, and the ugly from Josh Beckett. The bad? Allowing six hits and four runs in the first two innings against the Toledo Mudhens. The good? Settling down at that point, and throwing three scoreless frames in an 11-6 win. The ugly? The chin beard.

Unfortunately for Toledo, somebody named Aaron Laffey started the game, and promptly allowed a lead off home run to Dustin Pedroia. He then proceeded to strike out the side with his weak ass sh*t. The Sox caught up to him, however, in a seven-run second highlighted by a grand slam by Victor Martinez.

Paul Byrd pitched three innings in a tuneup for his presumed role as playoff long man.

Notes:

Sox catcher Dusty Brown hit his first career home run…Beckett improved to 17-6 with 199 strikeouts…Pedroia’s first inning homer was the first lead off HR for the Sox in 2009…reserve outfielder Brian Anderson was 3-3 with a homer and 3 RBI
