I decided I’m going to make an attempt at liveblogging tonights game. Tonight is going to be a great pitching matchup, Curt Schilling vs. Johan Santana . Mike Timlin will be making his return from the Disabled List today, and should be making an appearance in the 8th inning.
8:12: Coco strikes out. Not a good way to start the night.
8:14: Santana gets guys behind in the count fast, the Sox are going to have try to work him deep in the count somehow.
8:15: Loretta strikes out too, I’m starting to think go first pitch swinging.
