    Red Sox 4, Skanks 6:
    Well, We knew they would not win them all…

    Posted by Christine E. at 4:50 pm in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox Comments (2)

    So now, I guess it’s all over, since the Skanks won a game, we should just give the World Series trophy to them now huh?

    Seriously, this is the mentality of some Skankee fans, as unfathomable as it is…

    Doesn’t it always feel like a shortstop error contributes to a loss? It does to me…Now, don’t get me wrong, I like Marco Scutaro, and think he will do more good than bad in 2010 (and no, the wall-ball double off Rivera in the 9th did not escape me either) But the error that started the ripple effect that caused the loss…Blah Blah Blah

    But the suckiest thing of it was that the Skanks has THREE errors to the Sox ONE, but they still won…UGH…

    Jon Lester, while certainly pitched well enough for the win, was not as good as he can be: Throwing 94 pitches, 53 for strikes in his 5 innings of work, Lester gave up 4 runs on 5 hits while walking 3, hitting 2, and striking out 4…

    So, apparently, Youk was raising money during spring training for his charity, Hits for Kids, by having fan donate $1 to vote on what he should do with his beard–the choices were: Shave it all off, a mustache only, A Fu Manchu, or the full goatee that he wore last year. And the fans have spoken. Kevin Youkilis will continue to look like Agent Zed’s son for the foreseeable future…

    OK, Big Papi is 0-7 in 2 games this year–Not sure we really need to panic quite yet, but I just hope that if it continues for an extended period of time (oh, like LAST YEAR) that Tito does the right thing and gives his bats to Mike Lowell. But for right now, the fans freaking out, and Big Papi being aggravated about the fans freaking out, is kinda nuts…

    Ryan Westmoreland, the minor league outfielder who underwent brain surgery during Spring Training was at the game on Sunday night, sitting in the luxury box of John Henry. It was also announced that he will continue his therapy at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Boston. Ryan’s father weighs in: “We don’t know, at this stage, what’s going to happen. The surgeon said it perfectly when he came out of the operating room. He said, ‘First thing is his life, second thing is quality of life, and we’ll deal with the rest after that. Right now, he’s trying to get back to a point where he can live a normal life. If baseball is in the cards, it’s a bonus. Right now, we’re just concentrating on quality of life.” Good Luck and Tons of Positive Vibes to Ryan and his family…

    Reason #708 why I like Tito Francona: When asked about Neil Diamond singing “Sweet Caroline” on Sunday: “I don’t know if the Red Sox want to hear this, but I actually thought it was Dick Vitale.” Can I just say that while I sing along with the song, I try not to think about the lyrics too much–the idea that the song was written for Caroline Kennedy when she was a child more than kinda creeps me right out…

    Coming up: John Lackey takes the mound in deciding game of this 3 games series, and his 1st major league start for a team not named the Angels. He is opposed by Andy Pettitte, who is honor of his 879th season in baseball, will add another “T” in his name–somewhere. 1st pitch 7:10pm…

    Go Sox!

      Yay, Lackey! Hope you saw the game last night. The end was too depressing to dwell on, but Ortiz hit a single… that was lovely… and Lackey impressed me in a big way.
