Game time: 5:00 pm EDT

Scheduled starters: Joe Blanton (14-10, 3.84) v. Jon Lester (4-0, 4.45)

The game will be on NESN.

Boston weather:

Noon observation at KBOS: Wind out of the southwest at 13 mph, visibility 9 miles, few clouds at 20,000 feet, temperature 88F, DP 66F.

Forecast: Another warm night at the old ballyard. It'll be more humid than last evening, and there's a chance of some gusty winds out of the southwest, which is blowing out toward left. There's a slight chance of showers or thunderstorms associated with a trough that is ahead of a cold front approaching from the northwest. There's some convection firing over the Adirondacks now; most likely the convective activity will stay north of the Boston area.

It'll be close to 90F at game time, and with the early game, we'll have another two hours of sun and some heating, so the winds are not likely to diminish until late in the game.

God I wished I'd checked a weather report before I left South Jersey. I brought a jacket just in case, but never considered shorts. I'll be the guy sweating his ass off in jeans in Secion 10.

I think Boston has places called stores. In those stores, I think they sell shorts. This time of year, I'd think those stores would have clearance sales for shorts. :whistle

Looks like I may be stuck at work for another 12 hour day, and listening in my office. Middle management sucks!

I'll miss a good chunk of it seeing I have to teach from 6-7:15. I get to listen to both ends on the radio, and miss the middle.

Yankee losses are one of life's unexpected pleasures. But we no longer have to worry about them in terms of the division race. Win this afternoon/tonight and the magic number is two.

EDIT: I was agahst to see what I'd written. Yankee LOSSES are a pleasure. Mea culpa.

Thats an awful lot of called strikes. Not that I'm complaining. But gameday shows them pretty far outside of the zone...

I've got gameday, so, I can't be sure, but did Stewart just rob a home run from Ellsbury?

EDIT: Of course not, they're playing in Fenway, forgot about the monster.

It was cooler today in Tuscaloosa, Alabama than Boston? No way. I call foul.

It appears that Jon is staying up with the heat, though. Five strikeouts in just two innings?

Actually, it is possible. Word is Victor Conte has been trying to market his "pogo stick" steroid here as of late. Maybe Shannon Stewart took him up on it?

Following on game day, so the line looks o.k.--3 innings, 3 hits, 1 run, 1 bb, 6 k's. How does Lester look--how's his location?

Now if we can just get some runs here. Time for the bats to wake up.
