In a battle that could have ended the way it did in Tombstone... Sox young "gun" (love that movie) Buchy the kid shot down "Doc" Halladay !!! and uh the Blue Jays in a Buccholz blaze of glory (love that song) ... forever changing the history/mystery of the O.K. Corral
Just as V-Mart now knows that every dog will have his day.... last night was Clay's, uh... day... pitching 6 innings and only giving up 1 run on 6 hits... You go boy !!!!! The bullpen took over and preserved Clay's sterling effort.... pitching 3 frames of near-perfect ball... YES.. I DID just say that !!!! Nuf Ced
The Sox' double barreled bats were once again fully loaded, cocked... uhhhhhhhhh.... and ready to fire... and fire they did as Papi Grande, JBay and V-Mart continued their assaults on opposing pitchers... each peppering a big fly..... JBay's 27th...Papi and V-Mart's 19th each....
The only starters to not get a hit were JD and Nicky. Despite Tek sitting again and Dustin's new daddydom.... the Sox proved how well stocked they are in still fielding a formidable line-up. Youkah and Casey even chipped in with stolen bases !!!!...
"Painfully" absent was a steal from our THIEF.... hmmmmmm, I wonder..... he couldn't possibly be postponing a Sox record-breaking attempt until....... until...... THIS WEEKEND !!!!!!!!!!! AT HOME !!!!! AGAINST THE STANKEES !!!!!!!!!!!...... NUF CED
One "episode" that I WAS able to partake in viewing (after my electricity was restored) was in the 9th inning.. V-Mart had just dinged the Toronto pitcher.... next up...... you guessed it !!!!!! YOUKAH !!!!!!!! So what happened... You guessed it again.... Youk took yet another one for the team square in the back.... does 2 0 look like this..
Returning tonight will be our "virgin" father as Jonny Lester takes the hill. With the Twinkies (hungry AGAIN) downing the Rangers.... the Beantown Bombers are on top of the wild card race... and with the Evil Empire on a Boston brigade this weekend...... things are really heating up - gotta "love" August in New England !!!!!!!!!
REMDAWG RETURNS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In a blockbuster of an announcement, Jerry Remy returns to the booth... YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS !!! albeit on a part time basis... AWWWWWWWWWWWW !!!! I'll take what I can get, though. And could it get any better than having Remdawg return on Friday.... uh, the opening game of the afore-mentioned Stankee weekend ?!?!?! Boy I can't wait to here those 3 little words again.... NO !!!!! Not THOSE words.... these.... "Buenos Noches Amigos !!!" Nuf Ced
As always... it's been real..... it's been fun..... and it really has been a lot of fun !!!!!
