Lots of great things came out of last night’s 5-4 Red Sox win over the White Sox. Joe Kelly turned in his fourth straight quality start and Rusney Castillo went an impressive 3-for-4, knocking in all 5 of the Red Sox’ runs.
But for me, the game’s most memorable image came when Pablo Sandoval dropped a twenty-megaton belly flop on a tarp along the third base side while snaring a foul ball. It was a spectacular catch, although it also gave us one of the season’s most horrific — and painfully long — crotch shots.
Guy’s got a good hundred, hundred-fifty pounds on me and he’s making moves that would land me in rehab. My hat’s off to him.
