It's 10-2 Sox after 6.
This is no time to be complacent, though we might want to appreciate our aging / adjusting former ace, so figure it out Valentine / McClure. He's at an even 100 pitches and I vote let him pitch the 7th.
Don't try to strike everybody out. Strikeouts are boring!
“First sinker I ever threw was to Jason Varitek in my first start in the big leagues. … He said, ‘Here, throw a two-seam.’ I guess he thought I threw one. So I just gripped it and threw it. I wasn’t going to tell Jason Varitek I didn’t throw a two-seam fastball." Clay Buchholz
