Listening to Felger and Mazz and they play that clip, I crack up.
This guy is a waste of space. As Mazz said, this year’s Bobby Jenks.
I know I was excited whethe Sox traded for him, no longer. He’s blown more games than anyone I can remember in recent Sox history.
Release him. Stop faking injuries for this fat tub of goo. Pray Bailey comes back healthy and move on for the terrible Hanrahan experiment.
We have the Bruins trudging to the finish line, the Celtics in the playoffs, and the Red Sox playing in the muck. I found myself flipping between the three and disappointed wherever I stopped.
The Bruins were once again sleep walking. They’re limping to the finish. Against a sub .500 team I expected better but they lost 5-2. The game was over after two. They fade so much late in games I had no confidence after two so I flipped over to the C’s abandoning the Bruins.
It wasn’t any better in New York. Garnett got his fourth foul and then their offense – which looked good at the beginning of the second and midway through the second – faded. Invisible in the second half just like they did in game one. They’re old and seeing it. Pretty sure this series is the Knicks for the winning. The C’s may take a game but I think they’re done and this may be the end of KG’s career.
Meanwhile in Fenway the Sox were down 13-0. I have to believe Uncle Larry was locked in a closet somewhere when I read this gem from Gordon Edes:
Red Sox management was sufficiently embarrassed that they offered anyone holding a ticket to this dreck free admission to Wednesday afternoon’s series finale against the Athletics or Thursday night’s game against the Houston Astros, who will be making their Boston debut as an American League entry. Fans can exchange their ticket stubs at Gate E beginning two hours before game time.
Free admission? I think Uncle Larry is definitely locked in a closet.
Three games, three losses. A bad night all around.
First the awesome shot from last night’s Boston skyline.
Second, a story.
From 1999 to probably 2010 I bought several Sox hats. From the Nomar #5 hat I got in 2001 up to the red fitted Boston B I grabbed before hopping a flight to Baltimore in 2010. Lots of hats. Some worn a couple times (2004 Championship hat), others worn a ton (faded fitted blue Boston B). Worst hat was the batting practice with the wicking material; garbage.
I bring this up because it’s been a few years since I bought a new Sox hat. The team has turned me off so much I just couldn’t justify it.
Then last Monday happened. And the Sox released this…
For the first time in about three years, I bought a new Sox hat. One that has proceeds going to One Fund Boston instead of Uncle Larry’s pocket. Click on the picture and it’ll bring you to a site where you can buy your own.
I encourage everyone to do the same.
I’ll hopefully be back to regular posts tomorrow…for now, David Ortiz from Saturday’s Sox game; the first home game after last Monday’s tragedy.
Yesterday Toucher and Rich played the audio of the video I posted yesterday, it still gave me goose bumps.
It did get me thinking of how the Sox would handle the game tonight. I tried calling Felger and Mazz but couldn’t get through. Around 10:45 the thought still swirling in my head as I was driving home from watching the Sox, I called the Adam Jones show on The Sports Hub.
My statement and question was simple. The Anthem at the Bruins game seemed so organic and real; how are the Red Sox and more specifically Uncle Larry and Dr Charles going to handle Friday night at Fenway.
Jones said its not a competition and they’ll handle it with grace and class.
But it’s Uncle Larry. He doesn’t want to be outshined. I find it hard to believe that whatever is planned tonight (they’re dropping the flag on the Monster, that’s confirmed) won’t come off as insincere even if it’s not intentional.
Hearing stories related to this tragedy has given me hope with humanity. Strangers’ acts of kindness to other strangers has been great. Here’s hoping the Sox keep that going and don’t get hokey.
