Every Sunday ESPN nationally televises one baseball game, and last night they showed the final game of the three-game set between the archrivals Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees. The Red Sox won the rubber game of the series 7-2, thanks to a strong pitching performance from David Wells, who pitched 8 1/3 solid innings. After a Gary Sheffield single in the ninth inning, Red Sox manager replaced Wells with relief pitcher Keith Foulke, who has been struggling greatly this year. The announcers said that Foulke had flown to Birmingham, Alabama, last week to see Dr. Glenn Fleisig. That was a name that caught my ear.
Yesterday after work I headed downtown for the evening. First stop was one of my favorite restuarants in Chinatown: Taiwan Cafe. Taiwan Cafe is the best place in town for soup dumplings (very, very yummy).
