I saw parts of this game through the ESPN bonus coverage during the Red Sox-Cardinals rain delay. The most important thing I determined from this game is this:
Mark McLemore is a decent colorman. He doesn't say anything earth-shatterring, but I'd much rather listen to him than the arrogant Tim McCarvers, Joe Morgans, Jeff Brantleys, and Rick Sutcliffes of the world. Those guys suck.
Beltre 3 hits? WOO!
I think Meche just enjoys throwing as many pitches as he possibly can to each batter.
