An Almost 5-Game Winning Streak

Nice job by HH and BroHo today in an 11-0 win. The loss on Saturday still kills me though--we could have gone into the break on a 5-gamer.

So the first half ends with us 5 back of the Yanks and 10 back of first place in the loss column. The perfect set-up to a second-half funtime comeback. And we start at home against the Royals, just like in the Morgan's Magic season of 1988. I was lucky enough to be at that doubleheader that started all the fun that year.

I can't believe all the original Ramones are dead now, with the passing of Tommy. Joey and Dee Dee died two and three years before I started this blog, but I see I mentioned Johnny's death here back in 2004. Note: the game I said I'd be going to in The Bronx the next night was that classic 9/17/04 Mariano-blown "catch the ball!" game. That night was one of my favorite baseball game experiences.

Hey Jere, just someone that enjoys reading your stuff - checking in that all is ok - did I miss you moving elsewhere or you are just taking a break from things Red? Neil
 
Hey Neil, I just finally figured I'd stop this thing. Decided to just end it rather than throwing a year-long retirement party for myself like some (classy) people.

I'm sure I'll start up other blogs at some point when I have time, I'll let everyone know...

I kept my twitter account and thought I'd keep tweeting just because I always have something to say, but again I just don't have the time these days and the Jeter shit is just too depressing, I'd rather avert my eyes.
 
And to answer your specific question--I'd never take a break from the Red Sox, you know me better than that;)
 
Sad to hear but thanks for all the entertainment over the years.

You're welcome!
 
RE2PECT!

Sad to see you go.
 
#2 on your scorecard, #2 in your toilet bowl....
 
Always enjoyed this blog too. Hopefully you start it back up for 2015
 
Thank you. But it's over. Will let everybody know if/when I start something new.
 
Thanks for everything and good luck!
 
You're welcome, thank you!
 
Jere—I really missed reading your blog the last couple months of this rough Sox season. Hoping you start another one up for 2015.
 
Thanks!
 
Just want to say I've missed your blog... never more than this weekend. If you ever want to come out of retirement and throw a year-long going away party, I'll help bully people into re2pecting you!
 
Haha, thanks! Yeah I had fun avoiding the whole end of the festival for Our Great Leader. I had a lot to say obviously but I just couldn't deal. Thanks for your support over the years and of course for your amazing website.
