Baseball. Like It Ought To Be.

By Theomnipotentq @TheMightyQuinn
Back in their glory days of the mid-1980s, the Mets had as their team slogan: "Baseball. Like It Ought To Be." I couldn't help but think of that line as the Red Sox were putting a serious whipping to the Toronto Blue Jays on Patriots Day today.
The hottest hitter on the planet, Jed Lowrie, had four more hits today, including a home run, as the Sox had their third straight W, and first really comfortable win of 2011. (With Daisuke Matsuzaka on the mound, you can never entirely use that word.) I don't think there is any question about who the starting Red Sox shortstop should be now.
Dice-K was simply superb, allowing the Jays just one hit and walking one in seven innings for his first win of 2011.
Kevin Youkilis and Jacoby Ellsbury also went deep, and Carl Crawford got into the act too, getting an RBI double late in the game. Hopefully this is the start of good things to come with him.
The Sox now hit the road, with nine games in Oakland, Anaheim and Baltimore. John Lackey returns to the hill tomorrow in Oakland, a place he has historically pitched well.
And BTW, I watched a good part of today's game at the MLB Fan Cave in Greenwich Village. I'll have a post on that tomorrow, as it was quite a memorable experience to say the least.
