    Red Sox 3, Cleveland 2:
    History in the Making…

    Posted by Christine E. at 4:12 pm in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox Comments (6)

    Of course the baseball world is a buzz with Stephen Strasburg’s exceptional major league debut –7 innings, throwing 94 pitches, 65 for strikes while giving up 2 runs on 2 hits, the only scoring on Delwyn Young’s 2 run shot in the 4th, while walking none and striking out, get this, FOURTEEN–including the last 7 batters he faced…And when he gave up the 1st homer of what will hopefully be a long and amazing career, the dummyhead in the stands who caught it? THREW IT BACK–dummyhead…

    The only completely unfortunate thing about Stephen Strasburg? Besides the fact that he doesn’t pitch for the Sox is he chose Satan as his agent…

    And, of course, like the rest of the world, I wanted to see this phenom pitch–but since the Nationals were playing the Pittsburgh Pirates, and I live in their blackout zone…yep–no phenom pitching for me….So then I turned to the Sox game, but, it seems that Roku and MLB.TV are having issues, and I managed to watch about 15 minutes of the game, but it kept reloading/retrieving, and then crashing, and then reloading–Netflix gave their customers a 5% discount on their next month’s bill for the issues they were having with Roku–So far, MLB has done nothing–and I would be really surprised if they did…

    While I got to watch very little of last night’s game, I was so happy to see Tim Wakefield do so well, going 7 1;/3 innings, and giving up 2 runs (1 earned) on 4 hits (including the ubiquitous homer) while walking none and striking out 6. He threw 105 pitches, 74 for strikes in his outing. And most importantly, Tim Wakefield pitched his 2777th inning for the Boston Red Sox, surpassing Fat Boy Roger for the most in the history of the franchise. Wake, classy as always, had this to say: ‘I feel very blessed to be able to wear this uniform for as long as I have. I think it’s a sign of longevity, dealing with adversity, the ups and downs, having an organization that believes in me and has kept me here for as long as I’ve been here….It’s a tribute to just never giving up. If I can pass on to somebody, maybe one of those people that are on the bubble, is never quit. I’ve never done that, regardless of how good I’ve pitched or how bad I’ve pitched. It’s always keep striving to be better, and I was fortunate to be here as long as I have been and to get a win tonight and to pass Roger for all time for innings pitched is pretty special.”

    Last night was also his 177th win–only 15 more to go to tie Roger and Cy Young for the most wins in a Sox uniform…

    And as I mentioned, only 1 of Wake’s runs was earned–the other was as a result of Adrian Beltre’s ELEVENTH error of the season–and his THIRD in the last 2 games…I know he makes the hot shot plays–sometimes-but, truly, the Sox are screwing Mike Lowell for THIS?

    In an effort to get him out of his own head and back onto the field, Jacoby Ellsbury is in Los Angeles today getting yet another 2nd opinion on his whole rub cage injury…thing… Visiting Dr. Lewis Youcum at the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic, Jacoby will get the complete soup to nuts workup to try and find out why he is still in so much pain. Tito weighs in: “I hope there isn’t something new. I think they’re just trying to get to the bottom [of it], or if nothing else, get an opinion that’s completely removed from everyone that’s around him. Hopefully we’ll get some news, and they’ll say, ‘We know you feel this, we understand that, and you can build up and you’re not going to hurt yourself.’ But we don’t know. That’s why we’re sending him. We just want to get as much information as we can…” I reallyREALLY hope there is nothing more wrong with him…

    Coming up: That Clay Person gets the start of game #3 against Cleveland, opposed by old friend Justin Masterson. 1st pitch 7:05pm…

      The following time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I do know it was my choice to read, but I really thought youd have one thing fascinating to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you could possibly repair in case you werent too busy on the lookout for attention.
