Boston Homer Party

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: Not much here.  Didn't tune in till top of 8 when Rangers hit 3 homers and first seven Rangers batters in that inning reached safely.  Heard mention that Young was lifted for David "Charlie" Murphy because of a stiff back, that's not good.  Also, it seems that a lot of times huge offensive outputs like this are followed up by anemic performances the next day, we'll see.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining:  Offense was very strong to unbelievably strong.  21 hits, 18 runs.  Colby Lewis has walked one batter in his first two starts.  Is that good?

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: There was a Vicente Padilla sighting (former Ranger '06-'09) who came in as a reliever for the Red Stockings.  I just remember Padilla being a pitcher who either had terrible control at times or would bean a batter for a team just 'cause he felt like it.  Used to make for interesting ballgames when he pitched for the Rangers, if someone went yard on him it seemed like clockwork that he would bean the next guy.
