Go Andruw, it’s ya birfday, get bizzy, it’s yer birfday. w00t w00t.
I’m glad the Sox won this one, if for no other reason than to punish Jose Lopez for staring at his grand slam. It barely cleared the fence, he took a trot as if it were a no-doubter. I know players don’t get to hit a grand slam every day, but I felt it was borderline bush league.
