A Good Night to be a Sox Fan

What could be better on a night in July than sitting at the Cell with thousands of other Sox fans, watching a thrilling come-from-victory against the defending AL champs? Not much. And thank you Carlos Torres.

I’ve spent a lot of time over the years envious of the Twins and their piranha-like lineup. Well, I’m envious no more. With the return of  Quentin, Pods doing his Rickey Henderson imitation and the insertion of Beckham at third, this is a terrific lineup. It’s not only productive and balanced–but a whole lot of fun to watch.
Note of the day: A couple of future major leaguers had outstanding performances last night. Playing centerfield and leading off for Class AA Birmingham, John Danks’ younger brother Jordan went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in the Barons’ 3-2 triumph over Montgomery. He’s batting .292. This year’s No. 1 draft pick Jared Mitchell, who just joined Class A Kannapolis a couple of weeks ago, is hitting .500. Last night, in the Intimidators’ 5-2 win over Augusta, he went 2-for-3 with a run scored. He was also in centerfield.
