Ted Lilly. You could take Ty Cobb, Rogers Hornsby, Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Josh Gibson, Willie Mays, Ted Williams, and Barry Bonds, put them in Red Sox uniforms, and Ted Freakin' Lilly would mow them down. Shut them out. Make 'em look like blind Little Leaguers.Blue Jays - 060 011 000 - 8 12 1
Red Sox - 100 000 023 - 6 9 0
The seasons change, but all Boston batters go limp against Lilly (7-6-1-0-10). Once he left the game, the Red Sox suddenly started hitting. They came oh so close -- Ortiz up as the tying run against BJ Ryan in the ninth -- but Tiz skied the first pitch to medium right to end the game.
And on the back of Matt Clement's weak outing (4-8-7-4-1) that nice 6-1 start receeds further into the distance. We're now 6-3 and Toronto and the MFY are both 5-4. Bah.
