While this weekend wasn’t completely flawless, it was exactly what the doctor ordered. The Cuban Club was absolutely dominant, Nick Madrigal and Yasmani Grandal busted out in a big way, Dylan Cease found his fastball control again, and even Nicky Delmonico hit one out of the infield. The Sox are over .500 in August for the first time since Robin Ventura first found himself in the 3rd base dugout. It’s obviously a technicality but I’m completely going to take it.
It’s Sunday night, the Sox swept the Royals in KC for the first time in modern memory, and I get to watch hockey for the next few hours before I get to sleep in for as long as I want tomorrow. Life is good (if just for a little bit), and I’ll see you all tomorrow for the Brew Crew preview. CELEBRATE!
