    Red Sox 8, KC 6:
    Winning a Road Series…

    Posted by Christine E. at 5:23 pm in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox Comment (1)

    Good thing That Clay Person actually pitched a decent (if kinda short) game–5 innings, throwing 94 pitches, 59 for strikes and only giving up 3 runs (2 earned) while walking 2, and striking out 1–getting his 1st win in his 1st start of the 2010 campaign

    And it’s a good thing the offense kept up the hitting, including a 2nd homer in as many days for Dustin Pedroia, who had a most excellent 4 for 5 at the plate on Sunday afternoon…

    Because the Ramon S. Experiment is failing. Miserably.

    A %*&#@^*^#@*!^#*@^ 33.75 ERA? He pitched to 3 batters in the 8th and could not get an out, but he did manage to give up 3 runs on 3 hits (including a 3-run shot to Jose Guillen)while walking and striking out none…Time to break up the Demonic Bullpen Tandem. Speaking of which, MDC had a great outing yesterday, throwing 27 pitches over 2 scoreless innings of work, walking only 1…

    I know we are only 6 games into the season, but something needs to be done–bring up Ramon A, or Alan Embree–just please get rid of this guy…

    And can I even tell you how mu heart was in my throat when Adrian Beltre and collided, and I could almost hear the crunch of ribs as Adrian’s knee smashed into Jacoby’s chest–fortunately, there was nothing broken–only pretty bruised–he is listed as day to day…He weighs in: “I mean, it’s sore, but I’ll be fine. He kneed me right in the ribs so that was the thing I was worried about is a broken rib or something like that. I’m sure there’s quite a bit of swelling because it is tough to breathe…I guess the thing is to wake up tomorrow and see how I feel. As long as nothing is broken, I guess it’s [a matter of] pain tolerance. I feel pretty good. I know it’s going to be really sore tomorrow. I also hit my hip pretty good. I think I’ll be alright.”

    Big Papi has a pretty awful day as well, with 4 strike-outs– which means he has struck out 8 times in his last 9 at bats and is hitting .111 with no homers, one RBI and nine strikeouts for the 1st week of the season. Yup, the freaking out should begin any minute now…

    And a general note to reporters–when a person has a bad day on the field—don’t ask them how they feel about it–how do you THINK they feel about it? Do you really think a player wants to go ON and ON about a game they would rather forget? If you did a sucky job at work one day, would you want people constantly busting your ass about it? Asking you how you felt? So lay off. There is nothing anyone can say to fix it, or make it better. So let’s move on…K?

    So this may be the last year for Mike Lowell huh? Apparently this is part of the reason he accepted 3 years from the Sox when he re-signed with the Sox in 2007, rather than accepting the 4 year-deal from the Phillies. Citing the desire to be with his young family (his kids are 8 and 5), he is definitely leaning towards making this his last season. And no, it really has nothing to do with his current situation: “I don’t accept it (being a beach player) at all. What that means, I don’t know. I’m not going to be (a jerk) about it…it’s a much different scenario. I don’t think anyone would accept it…This sucks–and he deserves better…

    This afternoon: The Sox go to Minnesota to help the Minnesota Twins unveil their brand new park, Target Field. Jon Lester gets the start for the Sox, opposed by Carl Pavano. 1st pitch 4:10pm…

      Eek! I’m kind of glad I was moving and missed out on games over the weekend… the Jacoby spill would have gotten to me! So glad he’s okay.
