    Red Sox 2, Cleveland 3:
    Can’t do better than a split…

    Posted by Christine E. at 6:22 pm in Baseball,Old Friends,Random Thoughts,Red Sox | No Comments

    I guess we should all be grateful they didn’t get swept by Cleveland like they did 2 weeks ago…But FRACKING Nick Swisher and his FRACKING solo shot in the 11th off of Tazawa royally 10247326 10203294189587160 5897336974526127223 n me off on many many levels…

    But, the Sox won Thursday night’s game, which was my daughter’s first game at Fenway Park. Jon Lester was great, and Big Papi even hit a 2-run shot for the occasion. With the exception of the cranky Cleveland fan that out of nowhere, started screaming at me that my kid was kicking her, it was a great game. The crowds didn’t faze her (not even the cranky Cleveland fan), she insisted on walked the 3 blocks each way to the parking garage–and all of this was after we got stuck in traffic, and a normally 6-6-.5 hour car trip was closer to 9 hours.

    And did I mention she’s 2? But her clapping when Big Papi hit the homer was the cutest thing ever. Yeah, I’m one of those moms… Read more…

    Red Sox 5, Tigers 3:
    Is that a….dare I say it….WIN???

    Posted by Christine E. at 6:47 pm in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox | No Comments

    And this is so fracking sad sad SAD that it’s shocking–and that I get all ridiculously happy about it. Maybe this is how Houston Astros fans feel like all the time…UGH…

    So John Lackey, with his 7th win, is STILL the only Sox starter with a winning record for the 2014 campaign. And if he continues to pitch the way he has been, that trend may continue. Although, to be fair, Jon Lester usually ends pitching with backup from an anemic offense. Most of the time anyway…

    Lackey’s line: 8 IP, giving up 3 runs (2 earned, thanks to an error by Xander Bogaerts in the 7th) while walking 1 and striking out 5

    And thanks to a solo shot by Mike Napoli is his first game back from being on the DL, the Sox tied it in the 6th. But the best part of the entire contest is that David Ortiz hit a 3-run homer to win the game in the 9th. Off…Wait for it…Joba Chamberlain…ha ha ha ha ha… Read more…

    Red Sox 4, Cleveland 7, in 12:
    And then THIS happened….

    Posted by Christine E. at 6:39 pm in Baseball,BBA,Random Thoughts,Red Sox | No Comments

    Ya know…

    I like Cleveland. I like Terry Francona, and I like the 47 former Red Sox players who are currently playing for them. (Not too fond of Jason Giambi–but that is probably no surprise). They are my Dad’s favorite team. If I didn’t like the Red Sox so much, I could probably be a Cleveland Indians fan…

    And I was SO heartened by the 7 game winning streak the Sox had going on. It looked like MAYEB they had gotten their mojo back, and we were well on our way to making Brock Holt a genuine imitation super hero…

    And THEN Cleveland Happened. And 3 days later the Sox are 5 games under .500 and 8.5 games out of first place. And the suckiest thing of all is that if they could get their heads out of their asses, they could actually win the division, because c’mon, does anyone actually believe Toronto is a 97 win team????

    Me either. Read more…
