East 4, West 1
America's Civil War was North vs South. The Cape Cod War was East vs West, and played in Fenway Park.
When it was all said and done, the East had pulled out a 4-1 victory over their Western counterparts.
James Ramsey may become a big star, or he may be waiting your table in 5 years. However, he will always have a memory of jacking one out of Fenway Park. Ramsey goes to Florida State, and he is playing for the Y/D Red Sox this summer. He was the MVP of the game.
Mason Katz also drove in a run for the East, and they got another run on a Western throwing error.
White 3, Red 1
The Chicago White Sox won the first Sox battle, but the war remains!
Tim Wakefield failed to get his 200th career win, dropping to 6-4, 5.06. Jarod Saltalamacchia hit a home run to provide Boston's only offense.
The loss hurts, but I feel somewhat better knowing that the Naw York Yankees lost, too. Boston currently holds a 2.5 game lead in the AL East.
The two teams meet again in Chicago tonight, at 7 PM. Jon Lester (10-4, 2.23) starts for Boston.
Boston is also hot on the trail of Colorado starting pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez, who would help shore up our starting rotation. Baseball is near her trading deadline, so expect another post on this soon.
The Philadelphia Eagles signed franchise cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha from the Oakland Raiders. Nnamdi will pair with newly-acquired Dominique Rogers-Cromartie to give Philly a formidable defensive backfield. This move most likely spells an end to the Philadelphia tenure of old friend Asante Samuel.
This takes Nnamdi away from the Jets, where he would have been teamed with Darelle Revis in a Brady-stifling pairing.
Philly also added former Tennessee QB Vince Young, to back up Michael Vick.
- The Patriots signed QB Ryan Mallett and OL Marcus Cannon. They also released DE Ty Warren, TE Alge Crumpler, OT Nick Kaczur, LB Tully Banta-Cain, DL Marcus Stroud, CB Tony Carter and LB Ryan Coulson.
