Sox need to WAKEfield up!

What the hell is going on with this team. One day they're the champs the next they can't get a friggen run. Maddening I tell yah.
Two positives from this weekend Fridays unbelievable comeback in the 9th and Franky Viola burning up the booth. I mean I have enjoyed Eck, Roberts, and the plethora of other randomly Sox-related broadcasters, but Franky V was magnificent. Orsillo couldn't contain himself with some of the gems V was laying on him. I mean this is a guy who sounded like he was sitting at the corner of the bar telling old war stories to whoever would listen. Hopefully we get much more Viola in the final months of the season, because if the Sox keep squandering their leads it'll be a long October.
Orsillio has proved he can work with every style of broadcast partner from cards like Viola to stiffs like Macha. Forget the talk about Youk, Orsillio is my MVP.
