    June 4, 2014: Boston Red Sox Star Pitcher Jon Lester “Putts for Miracles” with Local Pediatric Cancer Patients

    Posted by Christine E. at 8:45 pm in Good Deeds,Red Sox | No Comments

    Last Wednesday May 28th, Boston Red Sox star and cancer survivor Jon Lester joined area pediatric cancer patients from the EMF - Jon Lester3Jimmy Fund Clinic to “Putt for Miracles” on a traveling putting green.

    The “Tee Off” event kick-started a week-long effort by Expect Miracles Foundation to raise funds for youth and families affected by cancer. In honor of National Cancer Survivor Day on June 1, the portable putting green will make stops throughout the city through June 6, allowing participants to putt to win a free lunch while donating a suggested $10 for the cause. All participants will be entered to win a VIP Red Sox experience. Read more…

    Red Sox 4, Tampa Bay 0:
    Tampa Bay Who???

    Posted by Christine E. at 6:03 pm in Baseball,Old Friends,Random Thoughts,Red Sox | No Comments

    When you have JUST ABOUT HAD IT with the annoying and petty other team with their whiny 6.8 fans…

    When there are a million and 15 Red Sox players and managers who get thrown from games all weekend, for various and sundry reasons, despite the fact that it was fracking Tampa Bay pitching spent Friday and Saturday hitting Red Sox batters at will…(although the cranky Texan got one in yesterday…)

    What do you do? How do you retaliate?? You win, and you WIN BIG. A sweep is about as giant of a F*ck you as you can get. And I will take that any day of the week.

    And holy buckets, how the HELL did Tampa Bay usurp the Skanks as the biggest rivals of the Sox??? Weirdness. But there will Nev-A Ev-A be a team I hate more than the Skanks, even if they are rather boring these days…

    Jon Lester has finally hit .500 in the W-L column with his 6th win of the 2014 campaign, and it was a gem: 7 brilliant innings of 4-hit shutout ball, striking out 12, and walking 1. He threw 122 pitches, 73 for strikes… Read more…

    Red Sox 4, Atlanta 0:
    3…is a Magic Number…

    Holy Buckets! Again with the happy happy joy joy for another Red Sox win. Their 3rd in a row. For the first time this year. Against Atlanta. Hopefully the mojo will transfer to other teams as they can’t play the Braves all stinkin’ year…

    And John Lackey. Holy Buckets. I still cannot believe he is the same pitcher that not only was a ton of complete suckage 2 years ago, but a complete asshat. And he has done a 180 on both counts. As the ONLY winning pitcher in the Red Sox rotation, (Yeah, read that again, I’ll wait) he got his 6th win with a great outing last night. Throwing 105 pitches, 77 for strikes, he pitched 6.1 innings of shutout ball, giving up 8 hits while walking NONE and striking out 9. And again the bullpen did its job with 2.2 innings of 1 hit ball with a walk and 2 strikeouts…

    And shockingly, That Clay Person was placed on the DL yesterday with a hyper extended left knee. Uh huh. I am SURE the injury that he supposedly got THIS WEEK is responsible for the complete and utter CRAP he has been dealing all season. Yeah. SURE it is… Alex Wilson was called up from Pawtucket to take his spot on the 25 man…it will be interesting to see who wil get the spot start in his stead (and Felix’s as well) this weekend against Tampa Bay.

    Red Sox 6, Atlanta 3:
    Win Streak!

    How sad is it that everyone (myself included) is so FREAKIN happy about 2 wins in a row? That’s what happens when you are living in an alternate universe.

    And like I said on Facebook last night, the Sox may be OK if they play Atlanta for the rest of the year…

    Holy Hell…

    So Jon Lester got his first win in what seems like a VERY long time, even if it WAS like 2.5 weeks ago, and again, he pitched competently enough, 6 innings, giving up 3 runs on 8 hits (including a homer) while walking 3 and striking out 7. He threw 111 pitches, 67 for strikes.

    And again, the bullpen was nails, throwing 3 innings of 2-hit ball with a walk and 4 strikeouts…And Koji, with his 11th save of the season, now has a 0.87 ERA. Read more…

    Red Sox 8, Atlanta 6:
    Wait, What?????

    Holy Buckets, I hope this is not just a mass hysterical hallucination by the Nation, and we are going to snap out of it to find that they in fact DID NOT win…

    Because honestly, we saw a weekend where freaking Josh Beckett threw a no-no for the Dodgers and Theo hired Manny to be a MENTOR to young hitter in the Cub organization. Its alternate reality time and anything is possible…

    But it’s a good thing that they did win. My freaking black marker was running out of ink for all the black dots I have been placing on the schedule for the 2014 campaign. And speaking of,  the Sox are DEAD LAST in the AL East, 8 games behind, of all teams, TORONTO. Although that is pretty much as a result of the 7-game winning streak they are carrying…

    And I know we can go with the argument that many have: That this is the defending World Series champs, and that there are still 112 games left to be played. And its baseball, and anything can (and usually will) happen. But the fact that this ballclub is 21-29, EIGHT games UNDER .500 is completely unacceptable. Something is obviously broken with this team, and they need to figure out what the hell it is…and Fix. It. Read more…

    And that would be #6…

    Holy…#@&(&#^%@!^*@!^(&@#^!%#^*!&^@*&!^*&@

    Last year, the Sox never lost more than 3 in a row. This year, it appears they are trying to go in another direction–never WINNING more than 3 in a row. And, apparently THAT isn’t even enough, cause right now it feels like they are never going to win AGAIN…

    I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am having flashback to 2012–without the crappy attitude…

    And what the FRACK is going on with that Clay Person? Needs to work up his shoulder strength MY ASS. Another outing where he sucked OUT LOUD in about 14 different colors. There is SOMETHING wrong with him.

    His line: 4.2 IP, throwing 90 pitches, 53 for strikes, giving up 5 runs (4 earned) on 9 hits (including 2 homers) while walking 2 and striking out 2. Which means he ends up with his FOURTH loss of the season, and a 6.32 ERA…Holy Hell… Read more…
