    Red Sox 8, Rangers 3:
    And that would be a sweep!

    Posted by Christine E. at 11:40 am in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox Comments (2)

    OK, I have to admit–On Monday morning, when I was putting the little red dots on my calendar for the weekend, (red dots for wins, black for losses) I got a little carried away and put a red dot on this game–despite the fact that it wasn’t even going to be played for another 3 hours….

    And despite the fact that Clay Buchholz could not get out of the 4th inning in his last outing against the Skanks (where he gave up 7 runs over 3 2/3 innings..) He fared MUCH better this time around, throwing 6 innings of no-run ball, throwing 103 pitches, 68 for strikes, and only allowing 5 hits while walking 2 and striking out 6. From Clay: “I’ve felt like I’ve had good stuff just about every time I’ve gone out, but there’s a difference between having good stuff and just going out and pitching…It’s a whole world of difference, and I felt like I actually pitched today, instead of just going out there and throwing curveballs and changeups and hoping something good will come out of it.”

    With yesterday’s win, the Sox are 65-48 on Patriots Day…

    Old friend Kason Gabbard didn’t do so well, having to leave the game after the 2nd inning with back spasms–He has been throwing scoreless ball until then, but unfortunately for the Rangers, his replacement, Dustin Nippert sucked out loud, giving up the 8 runs the Sox scored in the game…

    And we had better check for pods in the basement–Julio Lugo went 4 for 4 with a walk and a RBI–do do do do…

    Historic Hardware for Manny: Along with the Tiger’s Miguel Cabrera, Manny Ramirez was named the AL Bank of America Co Player of the Week for April 14-21. His 16th time winning the honor, which is the most of any player EVER, was based on him going 10-24 with 4 homer runs and 8 RBI’s for a Batting average of .417 for that span…

    In a very good turn of events, Mike Lowell has been cleared to take batting practice today–if all goes well, its possible that he could be activated when he is eligibly to do so on Friday–How cool would that be? I miss seeing him terrible, despite the fact that Youk is superb at 3rd, and Sean Casey has been stellar at 1st base (and with his bat)

    Coming up: The Sox start a 3-game series with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Pittsburgh, USA, North American Continent. Josh Beckett gets the nod and will throw 1st pitch at 7:05pm, opposed by Angel’s starter, Jered Weaver

    During the game I will be attending a local AAA baseball game–The Scranton/WB Skanks vs the Cleveland Indians Triple A team, The Buffalo Bisons–Go Bisons!

      Great sweep by the boys, Christine.

      No Beckett tonight, but Pauley set ’em down in order in the first. Hope things are going well for you and here’s to 14-7!

      Without a doubt, your correct!. I’ve got a quick dilemma, if you don’t mind. We have been preparing to get a residence within Seattle, nevertheless I don’t know if we should have confidence in the actual inspector. How can you tell if we can have faith in that they know all they claim they do? Soon after having an inspector go over the residence we where thinking of buying. They then had a chimney sweep come clean the chimney and he discovered several things wrong with the fireplace that the inspector did not. Just what exactly should we do? These guys are the ones that rescued our rear end. The Mad Hatter Chimney Sweep 1000 4th Avenue, Seattle, WA 98104 – (206) 274-6409
