Okay, that was friggin awesome. I knew this lineup was stacked but damn, even I didn't see this coming.
This offense friggin exploded on Cole Hamels. Dustin Pedroia and Hanley Ramirez each hit two home runs (including a grand slam for Ramirez) and Mookie Betts had one. And Clay Buchholz actually looked like an ace. Seriously, he went 7 innings, didnt allow a run, gave up 3 hits and struck out 9.
I don't care that it was against the pathetic Phillies. That is friggin nasty stuff right there.
So Cole Hamels sucked, Mookie Betts hit a home run and Jon Lester last night only lasted 4.1 innings for the Cubs and gave up 8 runs and 3 hits. Somewhere, Ben Cherington is sitting back with his feet up and thinking, "yup."
