The guy who may turn out to be the "gem' of the Great Nick Punto Deal is Rubby De La Rosa. Last night, he hurled seven strong innings in Boston's 2-1 win over Kansas City. The other hero on the night was Mike Napoli who clouted his 11th HR in the sixth to provide the eventual martin of victory. De La Rosa won his third game of the year, lowering his ERA to 2.64. So, The Carmine Hose have won six of their last seven—continiting their revival in Post-Pierzynski Era.
