    Red Sox 7, Skankees 3:
    That’s The Way I Like It….

    Posted by Christine E. at 11:21 am in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox Comment (1)

    See? The Sox beat the Skanks and I suddenly feel SO much better–although there were times in last night game when I thought I was breaking out into hives–that is what you get when Batsh*t Julian pitches–lots of entertainment–but a greater hive potential…

    But, fortunately, Julian pitched well again last night, on his 34th birthday no less, going 5 2/3 and giving up 2 runs on 3 hits–he actually took a no hitter into the 4th inning–and got a little help from good grand friend Manny Ramirez who hit a 3-run shot off Mike Mussina in the 1st inning to stake Julian the lead before he even took the mound.

    And speaking of Moose–apparently, he did not have his fast ball last night, as evidence by the fact that he got wracked for 7 runs on 10 hits–currently his fast ball is being clocked at about 88-90 mph–not a good thing for him…or the Skanks…at all…

    And Mike Lowell (have I mentioned how much I LOVE this guy?) continues to be on fire, hitting his NINTH homer of the season in the 4th. Not that its that much of a surprise as he OWNS Moose–his career numbers against the pitcher are (9-for-17), or a nifty .529…

    Instead of subjecting myself to Skankee commentary (and the gave was not even available last night) I have been listening to MLB Radio which carries WRKO–and it’s the BEST $14.95 for a season I ever spent!

    My fiancé overheard 2 Skankee fans talking before yesterdays game “If the Yankees could win 10 and the Red Sox could lose 10, the we would be in good shape.” Well, duh….

    Beckett report: Just waiting for his time to pass, Josh Beckett’s finger is healed and he is ready to go. To keep him arm strength up until he is activated early next week, he will throw a side session equivalent to 5 innings of work: Says Josh: “I’m keeping my arm strength up, that’s all I can do right now…John Farrell has been awesome, coming in and working with me and making sure I’m getting my throwing in, making sure I’m throwing enough pitches to keep my arm strength up. When I come back, I should be in that 90 to 100 pitch range, so I should be able to go some innings for this team.”

    Slappy strikes again: In the 8th inning last night, A-Fraud threw an elbow into his successful attempt to break up the double play. While it was not questioned by the umps, Pedroia has something to say: “He went in late and kind of threw an elbow,” said Pedroia. “A little cheap, but no big deal.” Now does this surprise anyone? Didn’t think so…

    Tonight: Curt Schilling will face Andy Pettitte in the final game of this 3 game set against the Skanks–remember how I said I would be happy with 2 out of 3? Gentlemen, you know what to do…1st pitch 7:05pm

      Hi Christine: felt good going to bed knowing there would be no Yankee sweep. Tavarez looked great last night and here’s to hoping Schill bounces back tonight after 2 sketchy outings.

      Great job! Hope the wedding plans are going well.
