Bat's Come Alive-Sox Romp
Can you say MVP?
15-2 over the D-Ray's.
Now that's more like it.
What a night the middle of the lineup had. Ortiz was 4-5 with 2 2 run HR's and 4RBI's. Manny was 4 for 4 with 2 HR's and 3 RBI's. Trot was 4-6 with 3 RBI's, and Tek was 4 for 5 with 2 RBI's. Not bad at all. One of Papi's homerun's was a monster shot that apparently ended up in some children's playing area. Older-Dude had a great line from that one: "They need to put out a public address [announcement] to tell those children out there to be careful". Older-Dude is funny! How bout that!
Schilling wasn't looking so hot in the beginning but he pulled it together and pitched a solid game. One of the runs that was scored the runner tagged up from 2nd on a sac fly and scored. I didn't know that was possible. I guess Damon was a little lazy on the play.
I was at a bar with a buddy and it was nice to be able to watch the game on a TV and see the NESN guys. The whole computer thing just get's a little old, especially in our current cramped computer quarters.
I like winning.
It is very funny to see rookie pitcher phenom Craig Hansen carrying around his pink backup. That is a rookie hazing thing. It is a good one. Having been on the both sides of hazing I like the people who make it fun. Back in the day when I was in a fraternity I used to make pledges wander the house like they were superheros. One of them had to be Mr Invisible and he was pretty damn good at it. The other one had to be spider man and he couldn't touch the floor. Now that's humor. So is this guy carrying his pink back pack with him everywhere and having it at his feet in the bullpen. He also seems to be taking it with a good sense of humor as well. That's funny.
Hopefully Wake can keep up his great pitching again tonight and lead us to another win. I wouldn't mind if the Yankees could lose too. This series in Baltimore this weekend is huge. I was supposed to go to 2 damn games but now I only get to go to 1 due to some family stuff. Ohh well.
