Week The Second: April 10-16, 2016: "X Marks The Spot"
Sunday dawned with the Red Sox being Marco Estradaed into submission, a 3-0 whitewash. Monday gave us the first gut punch of the season, Baltimore's Chris Davis spoiling the home opener with a rocket to deep center off of Kimbrel to seal a 9-7 loss. Tuesday brought an early lead, which Buchholz gave back, and then yielded to the bullpen, who completed the shelling in a 9-5 loss. Wednesday brought 5 rough innings from Joe Kelly, but the offense picked him up for a 4-2 win. After Thursday's off day, Friday was those mean Jays again, and another hammering of Dickey in a 5-3 victory. Saturday was Price again, a 4-2 throttling of the Canadian power boys featuring a 3 run jack from the X Man that gives us a 3-3 week, 6-4 in toto.
