    Red Sox 2, Cardinals 4:
    Being the Them-est Them they can be…

    There are so few things in life that are constants–taxes, death–and people always being exactly who they are… And no one can be more Jonathan Papelbon, outspoken, opinionated, and even obnoxious (especially when talking about how he should be “setting the monetary standard” for closers….) than Jonathan Papelbon. Which is why his comments about Manny […]

    Red Sox 1, Oreos 5:
    Not liking these cookie crumbs…

    Two good things in yesterday’s game: Mike Lowell played this 1st meaningful game (relatively speaking) since the ALCS when he had to shut it down before his hip fell off…He was the DH, and went 1 for 3 with a single. From Mike: “Things felt fast — like your plate discipline is a little bit […]

    Red Sox 8, Tampa Bay 2:
    Even a Blind Squirrel…

    …will eventually find a nut… Which is why I am not going to get the least bit excited about Julio Lugo being the hero of this game, going 3 for 3 with a walk and 2 RBI’s. He also did not make any errors, which is a miracle in and of itself…If he can continue […]

    Red Sox 5, Puerto Rico 9:
    Just another loss in Spring Training…

    ..And let me tell you, it’s making me none too happy…I know, they don’t MEAN anything. But I would feel better if they were winning and they didn’t mean anything… I guess the “facet block with a little bit of cortisone” did the trick for JD Drew, as he is expected to be in today’s […]

    Red Sox 8, Reds 9:
    Missed it by THIS much…

    Despite the fact that Jon Lester had another amazing outing, 2 innings of no hit ball, throwing 20 pitches (12 for strikes), and striking out 2, the Sox fell to the Red by 1… This now brings the Sox Grapefruit record to: 2-5…UGH… So much for tomorrow: Brad Penny, who was aiming for his 1st […]

    Red Sox 2, Twins 1,
    Red Sox 16, Reds 5:
    Much MUCH Better….

    Some really nice pitching happened on Sunday: Another perfect outing from Josh Beckett (2 innings thrown, with nothing else–no hits/walks/strikeouts–nuthin… Also heartening to see Tim Wakefield have 2 innings of excellence, giving up only 1 hit while walking 1, which is decidedly better than the 2 inning/3 run inaugural outing against the Twins last week… […]
