Eighth time’s the charm?

Okay. What I am going to ask you to do -might- sound a little bit ridiculous, but bear with me, k? Find the sturdiest wall you can- and just run into it. Face first. Wear a mouth guard, because you don’t need to lose any teeth over this.

Or get into a fight with your carpenter and fall overboard.

Or SOMETHING, guys. Because we need positivity. Wake’s trying for 200 for the eighth time, and we need SOMETHING to keep us all from making Susan Lucci jokes.

That something?


So. The next time we talk, Soxies, I’m not going to mention tries 1 through 7. I’m not going to mention how ridiculously stupid our luck is. I’m not going to mention how ridiculously stupid our bull pen is. And Curt Young? Curt Young WHO? I have NOOOOOOOO recollection of Curt Young.

Operation positivity.

It’s going to work.

Hey, why isn’t K-Youk in the lineup? Crap, amnesia, what aren’t you telling me?!

Oh, it’s going to be a bad GREAT day.



Never mind. Don’t try it. How ’bout hypnotism?

Can you hypnotize people through the internet?

You are getting very sleepy. Feel those ocean breezes. Toronto? What Toronto? There’s no one but you and the beach, baby. You, the beach and Tim Wakefield and-


You guys! You guys! We’re SAVED!

The Red Sox hope Kevin Youkilis can return to the lineup Tuesday night. The third baseman missed the weekend series at Tampa Bay with a hip problem that will probably force him to play in discomfort for the rest of the season.
