Bedard’s Weekend Briefing 07.19.19: Chris Sale finally wins at Fenway (golf clap), crucial stretch beckons after Baltimore

[get_snippet] [theme-my-login show_title=0]

Good morning!

A few random thoughts while I wonder if Tiger's back will make it to the back nine on Friday ...

  • If you see Chris Sale walking around, make sure you slap him on the back and congratulate a pitcher making $30 million per season for winning his first home game in over a calendar year. Well done.
  • Just don't mention it was against the terrible Jays. Oh, and now the Red Sox get to beat up on the Orioles. Then the fun is over.
  • After three games at Fenway South, the Red Sox will face the Rays and Yankees for 14 straight games. That could be the season and the wild-card race in two weeks. Should be fun.
  • The Yankees just swept a doubleheader from the Rays and three-straight games. Red Sox are 10 back, two for the wild card.

Time to hit the links...
