Sox Make First Trip to Camden Yards in '09


Doesn't it seem like forever since the Red Sox played in Camden Yards?

That's because it has been. The Red Sox played their last game there on August 20th, 2008 (a game that most of us tried to quickly forget - Buchholz only lasted 2.1 innings giving up 5 ER and the Sox lost 11-6). Usually the Sox have a series in Baltimore in April or May, but this year first visit to the Yards has come much later.

In recent years, Red Sox Nation has filled the seats in Camden Yards making it seem like a home game for the Sox. This series should be no different.

O's fans are struggling to deal with a rebuilding year. Many of them are ready to jump off the Matt Weiters (three throwing errors in four games) bandwagon before it truly gets rolling, causing Baltimore Sun O's blogger Peter Schmuck to write a blog post titled, "Time to Mellow Out."

The Sox swept the O's in a 4 game series back in April. Let's hope they keep the wins coming in Baltimore.

Do you mean Matt 'Julio Lugo' Weiters? (three throwing errors in four games)
