Sox Beat Bax

You all saw Tek giving Pap targets that were way outside or high when he had two-strike counts tonight, right? If Pap wastes 0-2 pitches to Orlando Hudson, why not to A-Rod last Sunday? Nice comeback win tonight. Not even Julio "Edgar Renteria" Lugo could stop us from winning. Does that guy know how to ruin it for pitchers or what? Twice Tavarez gets on base, and twice Lugo effs it up. (And those routine grounders are tough, eh, Julio?) Anyway, we delivered the bomb and we still have a double-digit lead.

Still trying to figure out why the Yanks, when the AL East is playing the NL West, get to play the Pirates. Yet another unfair thing about interleague play. I heard Roger pitched to a 4.50 ERA today--lemme guess, standing ovation followed by each fan individually massaging that living turd as he walked off the mound. Well, I'm sure I'm at least half right. I haven't seen any highlights nor do I want to.

Okay, Sports Desk just came on, right after the Sox win, and they give us a montage of Clemens, as if he's some guy we all love and want to see. Ooh, he rubbed Babe's head like the old days! Hey, fucking Roger, you fucking piece of shitty toilet paper, the "curse" is over! Keep rubbing Babe's head if you wanna blow a three-game lead in the playoffs. Uh, NESN, can we not play fucking choir music when we show Fatty on screen? I'd noted during Roger's comeback that people seemed to be treating him like Jesus. Do we have to get that shit from NESN, too? So, yeah, I just saw the highlights, even though I said I didn't want to. But I was typing through most of them, so it's okay.

Wow, who'd have thought Foxwoods could out-crappify themselves? They have, replacing the "Wonder of it All" song with a cheesy number that goes "everybody break out!" Terrible job.

Nice piece by Tina Cervasio with Manny and his haircutter guy. Cool to see Manny talking to the camera and stuff.

And great job by LeBron James in his press conference, answering a Sopranos question in depth. I've never seen the show, but the fact that it wasn't our average press conference was a good thing.

Okay, here' the new little poem for you, but let me warn you, it's a little wordy:

Beckett, Schilling, Wakefield, Tavarez, and Dice-K and pray for all nice days.

Tomorrow, you'll get your JPotG Award winner, and a post about males and females in society and sports, and stuff like that. Oh, wait, I didn't do a JPotG for last night yet. I'll just throw that into one of yesterday's posts tomorrow. Or whatever.

Jere's Mom here:
Just read in the Times this morning that in order to be a successful blogger, the blogger must be authoritative and passionate. If that doesn't describe perfectly A Red Sox Fan from Pinstripe Territory, I don't what would.
 
But Jere, and I will NEVER stick up for "dem bums," they DO have to play the Mets 6 times. And I think that balances it all out. If Roger pitches like he did yesterday, get ready for a .500 record, Pinstiped Fans!
 
"Uh, NESN, can we not play fucking choir music when we show Fatty on screen? I'd noted during Roger's comeback that people seemed to be treating him like Jesus."

Yeah, I'm not sure what NESN was thinking here. This kind of irked me too.

Seeing Tavarez during his first at bat was the highlight of the game for me. This is why I--in stark contrast to almost everyone else--love interleague play. Because we get to have surreal moments like this. (And what does it say about our lineup that Tavarez gets on base twice only to be immediately erased by our "lead off" man each time?)
 
Peter: You may remember my long rants in the past about why I think the Yanks getting to play the Mets 6 times a year only makes it MORE unfair for us, as we don't have a "little brother" team in our own city that can't figure out how to beat us. Look at the Mets vs Yanks record since interleague started.

horse: Yeah, I like wacky stuff like that--but having these games every year makes that stuff less and less special.

Mom, thanks.
 
Playing Choir Music For Clemens?

F--- F------ Clemens;

That's what's proclaimed by "The Nation";

TJ, NESN

Rant or no, this just isn't true w/r/t the Yankees and Mets.

Why would you do this?
 
I hate that it's true, but it is true.

About this conversation, we've already had it.
 
Well if that's the sort of logic you're content with, don't let me stop you.

The fact of the matter is that the Yankees made hay against the Mets when they were bad. Since the Mets have improved, they've played them pretty much even.

But definitely, the performance of the 01 Mets is relevant there.
 
Speaking of that new Foxwoods commerical "Everybody Break Out" where the couple climbs out of their old suits and has a blast blowing their life savings for a losing cause, does anyone else think the woman looks like a tranny at the beginning before she "breaks out?"
