    $51,111,111.11…

    Posted by Christine E. at 11:52 am in General Comments (4)

    THAT is the exact amount of the bid for Daisuke Matsuzaka–Where the HELL did they come up with a number like that??? Weirdness…

    And while I am excited about the prospect of signing the 51 million dollar man, I am sick of talking/hearing/reading about it…Until there is actually some NEWS (i.e.: the Sox sign him or don’t..) do we really need a whole article about when Lou Merloni (LOU!!!!) was in Japan, he saw a 18 year-old Matsuzaka pitch on TV??? Can we say slow news day???

    And the stuff that dreams are made of: The 2007 Red Sox Schedule–Let the debate about Opening Day Starter Begin!

    If you look at the schedule, some strangeness is apparent:

    Doesn’t it feel that the only teams we play in September are Toronto and Tampa Bay?

    Who’s bright idea was it to open the 1st home stand with the Sox playing SEATTLE? huh?

    While we are at it–who thought it would be a good idea to end the season with a 4 game set with MINNESOTA??

    Where did these times some from? 8:11, 9:40, 12:37? Was someone smoking crack and decided: “Lets start a game at 8:13pm–and 45 seconds–and not a second before! Hmmmmm…

    At least we have a 18 day gap to get us back into and invested in the season, before we meet the Skanks–Its hard enough to be excited about baseball when its 14 degrees, but having to ramp up to deal with playing the Skanks right out of the gate–not easy…

    So, we have about 5 1/2 months to Opening Day….Crap…

      There IS no debate…Schill on the hill. In April. No other way about it!

      I agree–Curt should be the man on the mound on April 2.

      However, there will be those who feel that the $51 million dollar man should be the man of the hour–So we will see!

      All I see when I look at the calendar is on September 6 (my birthday) they will be in Baltimore and I will be there. I’m SO excited about that!
