Well, looks like this one could be going deep into the night — er, late into the afternoon. Brandon Moss — that “some guy named Moss,” as I referred to him in an earlier e-mail — just homered off Huston Street in the ninth.
Street’s 76 saves are the fifth-most ever by a player whose 24 years old or younger, but he now has 21 blown saves, too. He needs to be way more consistent. He missed location and left one down-and-in, and of course, any lefty will tell you what they think of pitches in that area.
Street can only hope this doesn’t set the tone for his season. Incidentally, Street just gave up a long blast foul to Jacoby Ellsbury. Does not look at all sharp.
