Joe Thurston Escapes From Evil Clutches of Yankees, Starts on Brady Day

Ah Patriots' Day. We once went to a Patriots' Day Sox game... and the Sox lost, 18-0, to the Minnesota Twins. I think we stayed three innings. Probably not going to have a repeat of that today, as the Sox are quite good these days and I'm behind a computer screen in New York. Batting ninth today? Joseph William Thurston. He's come along way. Here's a tidbit from his Wikipedia page:

On July 29, 2005, he was sent to the New York Yankees as part of a conditional deal. He played for their Triple-A team, the Columbus Clippers and was granted free agency after the season.

There's nothing more patriotic than escaping the Yankees. USA! USA! Go Sox!
