Rusney-Palooza Propels Red Sox Past Pale Hose, 5-4

New Red Sox President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski almost signed Rusney Castillo out of Cuba—but a certain team outbid him. Now, Castillo is beginning to fulfill the promise seen in him by Dombrowski, the Red Sox and many other clubs. Last night, Castillo knocked in all five Boston runs in a 5-4 win at what we still insist on calling The New Comiskey Park (which President Obama, of course, calls "Co-minsky Park"). In any event, Castillo homered, doubled and singled in his most productive game in Carmine Hose. Also, Joe Kelly (and his 1970s mustache) had yet another solid start—going 7 1/3 innings and giving up just two earned runs. A nice win to start a tough road trip.
