Thank you very much Snyder. You helped us get one game done. Maybe even a second game on the will be in your future, after that?
BostonHerald.com - Boston Red Sox: Sox swat Nats -- KC castoff Snyder makes mark in debut
Snyder helped shore up a thinning rotation, and as homestand openers and Red Sox debuts go, he had himself quite a solid evening.
As for the unusual suspects who came in to relieve him - Jermaine Van Buren, Javier Lopez, Rudy Seanez and Mike Timlin - there’s an extra donut and coffee for anyone who could have projected that cast of characters would combine on four scoreless innings of relief.
I think I'm happier about Manny's homerun. His average is .216 for the month of June, after tearing it up in May (.333 with 9 HR and a slugging percentage of .714), I'm hoping that whatever ailment is bothering him (hamstring, knee, etc...) will fade and he'll come back to dominate.
