    Red Sox 4, Seattle 0:
    Definitely a step in the right direction…

    Posted by Christine E. at 10:50 am in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox Comments (6)

    A game the Sox absolutely needed to win, especially since both the X-Rays and the Skanks won their games last night. This win kept things exactly as they were–while not the best case scenario–much better than then worst…

    Thanks to Jon Lester’s STELLAR shut out performance (7.1 IP, throwing 103 pitches, 75 for strikes, giving up 0 runs on 8 hits while walking 0 and striking out 6…)

    Looks like Bartolo Colon is back on the program after his rest over the All-Star Break. He will throw a side session this week at Fenway, and continue his long toss to 120-150 feet. From Tito: “He’s been feeling great. That’s good. Sometimes, when it starts stretching out, you can’t just let a guy — even though he feels good — let him go too fast. Same thing is going to happen. We’re trying to ride herd on him a little, but he’s doing good.”

    Papi update: In this 4th rehab game (the 1stg with Single A Portland) David Ortiz when 2-3 with a walk and an RBI…From Big Papi: “I feel good. Hopefully, everything will keep going like that.” He will do 2 more rehab games with the SeaDogs and then be back #3 in the lineup on Friday night vs the Skanks–where he is desperately needed…

    If anyone wants to be grossed out, you can check out Curt Schilling’s blog site–he has posted pictures from his shoulder surgery–while there isn’t a ton of blood and gore–its pretty nasty all the same, especially the “rotted tendon” part….ewwww……

    Top Prospect Alert just released their Mid-Season Rankings for the Top 10 Red Sox Prospects. Michael Bowden, who got hit pretty hard last night in his Pawtucket Debut (4IP, throwing 84 pitches, 57 for strikes, he gave up 3 runs on 7 hits (including 5 doubles) while striking out 4 and walking 0) is #1…

    The Skankees have finally acknowledged what everyone else in baseball has known for quite some time–Jorge Posada has no business being out on the field with the condition his shoulder is. The man cannot even throw AT ALL without pain. He was placed on the DL again on Monday (for the 2nd time this season–the 1st time it was for 32 days with rotator cuff tendonitis) and will be evaluated by a surgeon today–the choices are season ending surgery today, or waiting until the end of the season…But if he cannot play now, what is the sense in waiting. I cannot say I will be unhappy to see him out of their lineup, as he has always done wall against the Sox…

    Yeah, but the way these things work is someone goes down and they replace him with someone even WORSE–yep, you know what I am talking about–those NASTY Barry Bonds rumors that just will not die. They did it in 2004, when Aaron Boone went down for being stupid–and they signed A-Fraud…

    Speaking of A-Fraud, did you know he had a little party after the Home Run Derby on Monday night last week and NONE of his teammates even bothered to show up–but you know who WAS there–Yep… MADONNA… My husband says both Madonna and A-Fraud are searching for relevance in today’s world–I don’t think I disagree with him on that…

    Tonight: Another middle of the night game–BUT the last one for the 2008 campaign–Whooo Hoo! Daisuke takes the mound for game #2 of this series, opposed by R.A. Dickey for the Mariners. 1st pitch: 10:10 pm…
