It's the first day of October. Do you know what that means?
It's officially Soxtober time in Boston.
Soxtober was created in 2007 amidst controversy. Many said it was stolen from the Colorado Rockies after they created the catchy slogan of "Rocktober."
The Cleveland Indians
are coming to Boston for the next four days as catcher/first baseman Victor Martinez faces his former club for the first time since the trade.
This is the last time they'll all get in some work before flying out to face the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
in the American League Division Series. They need to have themselves in playoff mode.
There's a chance that Saturday's game could be washed out, which means Sunday could turn into a day/night doubleheader. If that happens, it'll be interesting to see if Terry Francona makes adjustments with the rotation.
