The Dreaded Pink Sox: Red Sox at Phillies Game Thread, June 12, 2009

New, 216 comments


In the first game of what's sure to include three days of civil, dignified crowd interaction, the 2007 World Champion Boston Red Sox come to town to face off with the defending 2008 World Champion Philadelphia Phillies. Two historically moribund franchises rocking fresh jewelry. Nouveau rich, if you will. Yankees, Dodgers, and Cardinals say: There goes the neighborhood!

Red Sox lefty Jon Lester will face off against Joe Blanton, who's finally returned to something close to 2007-8 form.

Discuss the game below.
