So Doug Mirabelli walks to the plate in the bottom of the 5th inning tonight, Sox trailing by a run and scoreless for 13 straight innings. And as the NESN graphic displays Dougie's 0-for-5 start, I say to myself, "It's a shame, sure looks like Mirabelli's toast."
One pitch later, Mirabelli breaks up John Lackey's shutout with an absolute bomb to deep, deep right-center.
The lesson...c'mon, do I really need to say it? I am, as you know, an idiot.
