Lugo, Big Papi and Texy's BBFIf you didn’t see last night’s game on TV or in person at Fenway like somebody I know, you missed arguably one of the best games of the season at the Fens. Trailing by 5 runs in the 5th inning, the Red Sox put a can of whoop ass on the Angels and Jered Weaver. The big blow off the inning came off of the bat of Big Papi, who crushed a ball into the rightfield seats. That gave the Sox the lead for good as they would add 4 more runs in a 10-5 win. Before Yo-Yo Tavarez takes the ball today, let’s take a look at the headlines and happenings from the Boston and Los Angeles area media on this fall-like day in New England.
