From Last Night:

  • The Red Sox and Rays enter into Game of the Year territory (see below)
  • Bailey rolls over the Cubs with 8 innings, 0 ER
  • A fog delay at US Cellular
  • Another Kershaw-y Kershaw start

What I’m Watching Today:

  • Gerrit Cole makes his MLB debut against the Giants (7p Eastern)
  • Lester starts after Monday’s marathon game (7p Eastern)
  • Turner tries to stay hot in Miami (7p Eastern)
  • Wacha against the Mets (7p Eastern)
  • CC and Colon in Oakland, I’ll leave the jokes to you (10p Eastern)

The Big Question:

  • Can you believe that game in Tampa last night?

So here’s what happened, briefly. Alex Cobb started and got shelled. 6 run first. But the Rays clawed back. 2 in the first and 1 in each of the 3rd, 4th, 7th, and 8th. 6-6. In the 10th, the Sox got two to take the lead, then Andrew Bailey had the meltdown to end all meltdowns and sent it hurling forward deeper into the night. It ended, finally, when Nava singled home Victorino in the 14th and the Sox added another for good measure. Just for reference, one of the more incredible win expectancy graphs you will ever see:
