Don’t get too excited… it’s just the Orioles. But… YAY.
Eat it, April and part of June!
Yesterday was a preview of the All Stars Home Run Derby.
See, that’s what you’re supposed to do. When your pitcher has a weak moment, the bats are supposed to blaze. You get back up. It’s like war, people.
You never rush a bunker without cover! Haven’t you seen “Saving Private Ryan?”
“I don’t want to go out there and put us in a hole,” Miller said. “Fortunately, the offense came alive there and Pedroia had that big homer and, after that, we took off. They saved my butt because I shouldn’t have put them in that situation.”
See, John Lackey? That’s called HUMILITY.
And then there are the Stankees who, despite LOSING yesterday, continue to get buzz for Mr. 3,000.
Only one player — Carl Yastrzemski — got to 3,000 hits in a Sox uniform. As of July 7, 2011, the San Diego Padres have had more players collect career hit No. 3,000 than the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox combined.
Whatever. We got six home runs.
In Youk-watch, here’s his latest on-air!
After seeing that AND the victory, you’re too happy, right? You need a pull-me-down? Bleacher Report does an EXCELLENT job articulating Lackey-gate HERE.
Resolved yourself to that, hmm? Need worse news? We could lose Jacoby. Stop this. STOP IT NOW.
While the Ellsbury camp is open to negotiating an early extension, it’s unlikely to agree to the Red Sox’ terms. Boras likes to get his players to free agency, and he’s averse to granting team options.
SCOTT BORAS, IF THIS HAPPENS I WILL NEVER FORGIVE YOU!!!!
Six home runs. Six home runs. There. I feel better.
STUPID SCOTT BORAS.
At least the Roger Clemens trial is in recess.
In sad news, Dick Williams died. He was part of that team my dad rambled about. The 1967 “Impossible Dream” team. So, while I wasn’t born until almost 20 years later… I kind of feel like I know those guys.
“Dick Williams inherited a Red Sox team that had finished with a losing record in eight consecutive seasons and immediately set a new tone and course,” Red Sox principal owner John Henry said. “Dick was an outstanding leader who demanded excellence and accountability from all his players, leading the Impossible Dream Red Sox to the 1967 AL Pennant that forever changed baseball in New England.”
