Gaijin Leviathan

J.D. Drew is on fire. He's playing like Tuffy Rhodes right now. If the Sox were to leave him behind in Tokyo, Sadaharu Oh's home run record would be toppled in a matter of months. Drew hit a three-run home run in Japan exhibition #1 and a grand slam in Japan exhibition #2. So much for that jetlag he complained about.

Other positive news from the Sox' 9-2 win over the Yomiuri Giants: Okajima got a giant ovation when he entered the game and pitched a scoreless seventh. Crisp hit a triple. Lowrie hit a home run. Wake pitched well.

Now it's on to the 'regular season' games!
