    Red Sox 15, Oreos 10:
    That is the way the Cookie Crumbles…

    Posted by Christine E. at 4:08 pm in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox Comments (3)

    Ya know, I always liked the Oreos–even growing up, I thought they were a fun team–not as cool as the Sox, but a team I could root for when I was in Baltimore, and enjoy watching the Sox beat the snot out of…

    But, since Buck Showalter, who I do not recall being quite so snarky when he was with the Rangers-even when A-Rod was there, has taken over the helm of the Baltimore Orioles, they are no longer fun. They are a whiny, self-important bunch of CHILDREN, who should focus on the fact that they SUCK, rather than whine that they are being “disrespected”

    Yeah, disrespected. Last night on NESN, Heidi spoke with that pitcher from last week, Kevin-what’s-his-head, and he was going on about how they feel the Red Sox have disrespected them, and how he didn’t feel they should have has the same punishment. Well, KEVIN, you actually don’t: YOU are a relief pitcher (in the loosest sense of the word); you are not a guarantee to play every day. Big Papi, on the other hand, is the Red Sox starting DH–he plays everyday….

    Granted, I think David Ortiz overreacted last week when Greg-what’s-his-head threw at him (wasn’t even skillful enough to actually HIT him) and then said something to him after he got out. But that is baseball, it happens, its over, we move on. You don’t hear the Sox jawing about this 2 weeks later…

    I think it was a very good idea that MLB had Big Papi and Greg serve their 3 game suspensions during this series–so far, there hasn’t been any issues. No one has hit anyone. Now Showalter needs to shut his mouth (cause you KNOW this all rolls downhill) and focus on his team, or chances are he won’t HAVE a team to manage next year…

    Welcome Back to Carl Crawford, who came off the DL and got right back into the thick of things, going 2 for 5 with and RBI, and scoring 2 runs. He has been on the DL since June 17th with a left leg hamstring.

    In more good news, Jon Lester has been penciled in to be activated from the DL on July 25th to kick off the 4 games against Kansas City. Let’s hope his lat issue is over and done with

    And, what a shocked, Bobby Jenks is back on the DL, retroactive to July 8th for the 3rd time this season, and for the 2nd time with the same injury–the back issue that put him on the DL in June. Yep, I was right: this is going to be a “thing” all year…

    Speaking of “things” I guess I should weigh in about Fat Boy Roger and his mistrial. I haven’t followed the case that closely, but apparently a mistrial was declared because the prosecution screw up and present evidence they were not allow to. Millions and millions and MILLIONS of dollars of taxpayer’s money went to prosecute him–all gone. And it wasn’t like a jury was deadlocked. It was pretty much a procedural error, so it all gets thrown out the window. And, even though there will be a hearing is September to decide, I doubt the government will not be retrying the case, so Fat Boy Roger gets off, scot free. Thankyouverymuch…WHAT a freaking WASTE…

    Oh, and for the record, I think I can speak for a great majority of Red Sox Nation when I say this: Josh Reddick needs to be the starting Right Fielder for the Boston Red Sox, and JD Drew needs to be benched, or released, or sent to the elephant graveyard–whatever it is you do to players who are sucking black holes at their positions…

    Finally, our friends over at eTrue Sports have released this little nugget: Boston Red Sox GM Theo Epstein announced today a deal to trade J.D. Drew and John Lackey for Little League right-fielder Lucy Van Pelt. “Lucy’s positive approach is going to be huge in the locker room,” said Epstein. As I said to their editor, Frank Coffey, if only it were true…

    Coming up: Thunder dome: 2 men go in, only one comes out. Rookie Kyle Weiland vs Jeremy Guthrie, where all the trouble started 2 weeks ago–if nothing else, it should be entertaining–cause, if something is going to happen–it will probably happen when these 2 are on the mound. 1st pitch 7:10pm…

      I’m starting to agree with you on Reddick. I’ve been a JD Drew apologist in the past… but maybe he could be trade fodder. Couple him with the newly good (???) Lackey…

      But I’m with you. I don’t like being this annoyed by the Orioles. I’m glad we’re out of Baltimore. Showalter has ruined that team in my brain.
