Just The Way Empire 'Drew' It Up; Sox Fall, 8-7

Saturday, they blew one three-run lead; so on Sunday, they blew two. That's the kind of progress we've come to expect from the 2014 Carmine Hose. Of course, ex-Sox Stephen Drew was the offensive stud for The Bronx Embalmers, getting a pair of hits and four RBIs in the 8-7 loss. More importantly, Clay Buchholz (our new 'ace') was bad again—coughing up those two three-run leads and generally being the polar opposite of the guy we saw at the start of the 2013 season. Take heart, Sox fans—they're off tonight.
