BoSox Fan Take: Talk about Ellsbury, Lester-Tanaka and more on BSI and social media


Jacoby Ellsbury returns to Fenway Park in the first game of a three game set between the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees tonight at 7:10 pm. BoSox Injection is the place to share your reactions — in the comments section below, on Twitter, or on the BSI Facebook page — post pictures of the best Ellsbury signs you see at Fenway, talk about the scintillating pitching matchup between Jon Lester and Masahiro Tanaka, or express your dismay with the home team’s struggles so far this season.

First Pitch: 7:10 pm ET
Venue: Fenway Park – Boston, MA
Starting Pitchers: Jon Lester (2-2, 2.17) vs. Masahiro Tanaka (2-0, 2.05)
Radio: WEEI 93.7 FM Boston (find your local affiliate on the Red Sox radio network)
TV: NESN, MLB Network
Online: MLB.tv, Gameday Audio, TuneIn Radio

Check out the Series Preview with BSI’s Paul Prims and Yanks Go Yard‘s Ricky Keeler.

Lester carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning his last start: a lefty showdown with Chris Sale and the Chicago South Siders that ultimately resulted in a Boston victory. Tanaka blanked the Cubs through eight innings his last time out, yielding a meager two hits to the North Siders.

The best reactions will be shared on BSI and our social media accounts.

Play ball!

    Looking forward to seeing some creative signage tonight. Full of bile and spite, just the way Boston does it.

    Gomes in the five hole against a right-handed pitcher again. It worked on Sunday, not sure if you can get away with it on a nightly-basis. Not sure why Nava is not starting.

      #TeamNava agrees. The good luck charm thing is tired out.

    I posted on Twitter my daughter(age 29) sleeps with Ellsbury. She turned his jersey into pajamas. Maybe Ells will hook up with Madonna?

    • Sean Sylver

      Hahaha.

  • Rick M

    Is this guy related to Professor Turo Tanaka? I’m wrestling with that one.

      Mr. Fuji’s tag team partner?

    Love the Sox but hate to say its game 3 Rangers-Flyers and I’m a Rangers fan so I am checking out full time at 4-0 but will check back in during intermissions.

    Red Sox fielding is really frustrating these days. Last night JBJ has near miss, Sizemore and Napoli miss catches, two balls just elude Bogaerts. I know they won’t get everything, but last night it seems they got nothing.
