Summer travels have wreaked havoc with us at Fenway West trying to keep up with posting recaps of the Boston Red Sox games. I spent yesterday in flying tin cans getting from San Francisco to Providence, arriving here early this morning.
While the spate of recent injuries to the Boston Red Sox has promoted some of the PawSox players up to the big show, so have the AA teams of Salem and Portland lost players to Pawtucket. Today’s game against the Rochester Red Wings (Minnesota) is also being broadcast on NESN, so there are more writers here today than at the game I attended here last year. The stadium is not as filled as I would have expected, but that could be due to the heat. At 7:30 EDT the temperature is still above 80, a very humid 80 at that point, too.
