Egg laying by more than the Easter Bunny

The Sox have lost consecutive series to the Rays and Angels now. The pitching has been mediocre, and the hitting hasn't been able to come through in the clutch just yet. Its a long season, way to early to panic. Besides the Sox haven't taken a regular season series in Anahiem since 2006 so it isn't like they don't play us tough out there. Rays and Yanks square off this coming week, so it will be interesting to see how that shakes out for the first time this season.

I missed much of yesterdays game with it being Easter and my father-in-laws birthday, so I had to catch the maylay in highlights later on. JB wasn't throwing at Abreu and all that nonsense from Scoscia that the league office ought to look into it is all a bunch of horse hockey (to quote Colonel Potter of MASH 4077th). Like one of the Red Sox interviewed said, there was a lot of emotions in this series due to the tragic accident the other day, so something was bound to pop sometime. 

Now we head off to Oakland to matchup with Billy Beane's Bunch of A's. Another late start on the left coast which hopefully will go smoother than it has been of late. Good time to get the bats working, and for Lester to show up strong.
