It’s great to see the Sox playing the Indians again. As Remy went through the defense on the Indians we were pleasantly reminded that they have Ass-Dribble Cabrera playing second base.
We learned that Travis Hafner has a fan club consisting of one rather large woman called “Hafner’s Heffers”. I don’t know about anyone else, but I thought it was hysterical and reminded me of the Pittsburgh fans we found during football season. Click for Front Click for Back.
I forgot to touch on the buried jersey stuff in my Bruins frenzy I was thrown into on Sunday night when I posted so I’ll touch on that now. Um, who gives a shit? Seriously? It’s such a fucking stupid thing. We all got a chuckle out of the fact that a Sox jersey was buried in the New Yankees Stadium, but did we really give a shit? I know I didn’t.
But apparently Hank Steinbrenner did. It cost the team $50K to have the jersey dug up. You’re telling me that the $50K couldn’t have been used for something better like maybe a few extra toilets? Just thinking out loud. Now they want to charge this guy with a crime too? Um, I don’t think that the shirt was hurting anything. It’s stupid mush-mouth Hank’s idea to dig it up, don’t put the blame on this guy.
So to recap, the Sox took two of three from the Spanks. Mike Timlin showed us on Friday that he’s old and perhaps keeping Bryan Corey on the team would’ve been the better play. Time will tell, but I put Friday’s loss on Timlin’s shoulders despite the fact the offense managed one God Damned hit (A JD homer) until Coco’s bullshit bunt hit in the 9th made it two.
Even with the departure of Charles Steinberg the Sox continue to whore themselves out to every avail. The latest is yet another Massachusetts Lottery ticket, this time a $20 ticket. Um, I didn’t win shit on the $5 or $10 tickets all of a sudden I’m going to pay $20? Eat a dick is a phrase that comes to mind. Even better, since we already can’t get tickets to games the team is now going to hold random auctions for tickets. Now normally when it benefits the Jimmy Fund or The Red Sox Foundation I’m OK with auctions, but these latest ones are just a way for the team to make more money. Um, fuck you, you greedy bag of dicks.
Let’s keep going on this for a minute. Jerry Remy as president of Red Sox Nation, telling me to “join”. Um, I was born into it and I don’t need a faggoty card to prove it. Now I see him on the Jordan’s Furniture commercial telling me to buy furniture and that it’s a great deal. Mind your business and don’t tell me what to do. Also there’s no fucking way I’m entering the “Ring Raffle”. I wasn’t on the fucking team, I’m a fan. Players get rings, not fucking fans. At least proceeds for that go to the Red Sox Foundation.
Finally I will touch on something I heard on Sports Radio over the weekend. Booing David Ortiz. The question was proposed that if the slump continues at what point do the fans get on him? How about you don’t! Unlike a piece of human excrement like Julio Lugo, Ortiz has given everything to this team that gave him a shot when the Twins didn’t want him. He’s huge in the community, great with kids and is an all around good guy. Let him hit his way out and applaud his efforts.
Ortiz = Free Pass
It’s 4-1 Indians in the 5th and the Sox blew a bases loaded opportunity in the 1st. Lester can’t buy a fucking strike. That’s it, I’m not watching. If they come back, great. If not, I didn’t waste my time watching. Maybe the C’s, minus the Big Three, will beat the Knicks? We shall see.
