Sunday Spot Starter For Red Sox Still Up In Air

If you're available and in Oakland on Sunday, you could pitch for the Boston Red Sox. Essentially, the Carmine Hose have no good choices for their starter that day—and even fewer options now that Steven Wright pitched 5 2/3 innings on Thursday. At this point, it looks like Brandon Workman or left-hander Drake Britton will start—so don't look for a victorious wrap-up to the season's first-half. Of course, given the way things have gone this year for Boston, Britton will probably hurl a perfect game. Anyway, if you're up to it, limber up your arm, catch the next jetBlue flight to Oakland International and report to John Farrell at Coliseum by 8AM PDT Sunday.You'll probably get the ball.
