Note to Red Sox batters: contrary to what you may think, ace pitchers can't actually score runs (unless you're in the National League, but even then most of them bunt or strike out). I know that Mariners hurler Felix Hernandez was on fire last night, but surely one of the most powerful lineups in the game can offer their own star a little run support even against some real pitching.
I believe Yogi Berra summed it up best when he said "Pitching always beats batting -- and vice-versa."
(Yes, I know it's way too early in the season to be taking these things so seriously, but I can't help it! I blame going to Spring Training...)
