FINAL: Red Sox 3 Orioles 1


Boy, Adam Jones must feel like a real asshole. Just yesterday he was saying that he wanted to spoil the Red Sox home opener and shut up the fans. Sure, he hit a home run--and that was cute and all-- but the bottom line is the Orioles suck and guys on sucky teams shouldnt talk shit. Because more often than not, they will end up looking like assholes.

Anyway, on to the game. Clay Buchholz allowed only 3 hits over 7 innings and all three were singles.  He struck out 8 and looked friggin awesome.  He has gone 7 innings in each of his two starts this season and has an ERA of 0.64.

Last season in his first two starts he allowed 7 earned runs and 5 earnes runs respectively.  What the hell happened to this guy?  It probably has something to do with the fact that the toxic asshole Josh Beckett is gone. 

Arrogance, laziness and assholeism is contagious.  Shipping Beckett out of town for a sack of baseballs was the best thing this ownership has done in a long time.  It changed the culture of the clubhouse and has turned this pitching staff around.

Im surprised no one else is talking about the Beckett effect (or should I say, lack of Beckett effect).  I mean, having John Farrell here has probably played a bit of a role in the pitching staff not sucking, but the fact that Josh Beckett isnt here is huge. 

Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz have the talent to be great pitchers in this league--hell, they each have thrown no-hitters--but at some point, Josh Beckett have up on life and when he did, he brought them down with him.

Anyway, enough about that cocksucker.  The season is now a week old and the Red Sox have the best record in the American League.  I know its early, but that isnt going to stop me from gloating about it.  They have looked wicked pissa so far and Im going to relish this like a bastid.
