Game 083 - Sox at Texas (W 7-4)

I was so out of the loop this weekend that I didn’t even realize that Matt Clement had been snubbed from the All Star Game. I first read about this absolute travesty of justice when I read the Boston.com headline for tonight’s game. If there’s been one constant on this rotation throughout the season, hasn’t it been Clement? With all the injuries and inconsistencies, isn’t he a sure-fire All Star?

Well, I hope he proves the doubters wrong tonight. It appears to be a tall order, from the little I’ve heard on TV about the opposing pitcher (Chan Ho Park), but I think Clement can get it done and this lineup is due for another offensive explosion.

Maybe Manny will hit his 21st grand slam tonight. Stranger things have happened.
