    Red Sox 11, Nationals 3:
    Did you see THAT PLAY???

    Posted by Christine E. at 6:15 pm in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox Comments (2)

    Holy Buckets! Good thing I have TiVo, because Nick Green’s stunning defensive play in the 3rd inning deserved a 2nd (even 3rd or 4th) look. That play reminded me of one Alex Gonzales would have made–it was beautiful!

    And it’s been 11 days since Julio Lugo has started–and in that span, the Sox are 8-3–I am thinking it would be decidedly different if Lugo had played those games. In light of this, I cannot see how Nick Green can lose out on this equation. The way the kid has been playing, the shortstop position should be HIS to lose…But I would be happy if the Sox dumped Lugo (although with that ridiculous salary, that seems impossible) and go with a platoon of Lowrie and Green…

    Bad Penny! pitched OK yesterday, although he did throw a TON of pitches (112, 68 for strikes) in his 5 2/3 innings of work, but until the Sox cracked it open in the 8th inning, it looked like it was going to be a nail-biting close game. Penny gave up 3 runs on 6 hits while walking 3, throwing a wild pitch and striking out 6…

    The bullpen combined for 3 1/3 innings of 2 hit, no run ball, walking 3 and striking out 2. And for the record, let’s keep Dusty Brown, give him a chance to play in the majors, (he made his debut in the 9th inning last night) and send Daniel Bard down to Pawtucket, where he can work out his kinks…

    And can we mention here, with the Skanks losing AGAIN, the Sox are now 5 games ahead in the AL East….And their road record now sits about .500, at 18-17…Yay!

    Holy Buckets–Is that Nationals team the elephant’s bone yard or what? Josh Bard, Willie Harris, Nick Johnson, Batsh*t Julian Tavarez–I was waiting for Rudy Seanez to come bounding out of the bullpen–and what is up with their “W” Its the freaking “W” for the Wilton Cake Decorating Company! Pretty lame.

    And, never to disappoint, check out this quote from BatSh*t, when asked why he signed with the Nationals: “Why did I sign with the Nationals? When you go to a club at 4 in the morning, and you’re just waiting, waiting, a 600-pounder looks like J-Lo. And to me this is Jennifer Lopez right here. It’s 4 in the morning. Too much to drink. So, Nationals: Jennifer Lopez to me.” I just hope we see him again, maybe he’ll roll the ball, or bounce it to 1st base…He was always SO much fun to watch!

    All-Star Update: Yes, Jason Bay still leads all outfielders in votes, Jacoby Ellsbury has moved up to 6th (he was 10th in outfielder voting), JD Drew is now 11th, and everyone else is the same, except Mark Toxemia has regained the lead over Kevin Youkilis for the start at 1st base, by over 35,000 votes. Alright Red Sox Nation, pull out the 19 e-mail addresses you have (c’mon you know you have a bunch) and start voting! You can vote 25 times per e-mail, with the polls closing at 11:59pm next Thursday, July 2…The All-Star game is July 14 in St Louis…

    Jed Lowrie only got 2 at bats last night–and in the 2nd, he was hit by a pitch on the knee (the other at bat produced a hit) and left with a contusion. He will probably sit out tonight as a precaution, but it should not be a setback for him…

    Remember Matt Clement? The Emancipator? While he hasn’t played in the majors since 2006, he will still be involved with baseball–on the High School level. He has been hired as baseball coach for his Alma Mater, Butler High School, in Butler, PA, which is just outside of Pittsburgh. His career numbers with the Padres, Marlins, Cubs and Sox was 89-86 with his best season coming in 2005 with the Sox where he was 13-6, and was an All-Star…

    Coming up: One more day until Smoltz, but in the meantime, Jon Lester gets the start this evening in game 2, opposed by Craig Stammen. 1st pitch: 7:05pm

      That chick is just gorgeous, I mean mostly all seems to think she is dumb but that’s just an act, it does require some skills to become one of the most famous people in the world.
