Slow Summer Friday here at the Banter. Tonight gives Tanaka vs. the Sox.

Tanaka tonight or Nuno? Because if it's the latter I can make backup plans.
 Yeah, probably need some backup plans myself. ESPN has Nuno going tonight and Tanaka pitching tomorrow.
Going to Slattery's midtown pub with my Meetup group to watch the game tonight. I'm hoping that since the Sox seem to be in a giant vortex of suck that it will somehow overshadow the fact that Nuno is pitching. Who knows - maybe he's due for a rebound and will have a good game
Er, Nuno. My bad.
 No. Nuno's bad.
If Nuno ladles out the "Italian Wedding" soup again (you know, meatballs?) this should be his last start.
