The Blue Duck is headed to Fenway for the Sox opener of a three game series against the New York Mets. Skipping out of work early to go sit in the bleachers for a Friday night game under the lights in Beantown is as perfect a night as one can ask for. Getting to see the game’s best pitcher pitch against the hometown team is a bonus.
The Sox are on a roll, winning their last three and 6 of 10, and are getting Dice-K back from injury.
The Mets are on a slide, losing the last 4 games and 6 out of their last 10.
Should be a great one and we’ll try to get some pics up from the game this weekend.
The Blue Duck’s prediction on the game:
Santana – 7 IP, 3H, 1BB, 1ER, 9k (ND)
Dice-K – 6IP, 6H, 3BB, 2ER, 8k (ND)
Both offenses are great (although both are underperforming). The Mets “improved” bullpen will fail Santana again and the Sox will take it, 6-4 in 10 innings.
