So to save you the suspense I will be away from the computer on Friday so no update. This is it till late Sunday/early Monday.
So we’ll start with the Sox. Grandpa Timlin put the nail in the coffin of his Sox career last night. Called on in an 8-1 game with two on and you immediately give up a three run home run? Weak. The team needs to make a move to get Paul Byrd on the roster, I say the team releases Grandpa Timlin. A move that should’ve come months ago.
With that, I give you the Grandpa photos from the archives.
The Sox are a rumored destination for disgruntled Detroit Tiger Gary Sheffield. The Sheff was rumored to be on his way to Boston when his contract was up with the Yankees, but the Yankees exercised the option on his contract and then dumped him to the Tigers. Gary, very bitter from the move, would want nothing more that to stick it up the Yankees ass and win a Championship with the Sox. Why not? He would help the team, still has pop in his bat, and if any pink hats get out of line in left he’s shown he’s not afraid to hit them.
Mikey Lowell went to the 15 DL. Sheff has played some first, third, and plays both corner outfield spots. I think he’d fit in well with this veteran crew. Let’s hope the waiver wire falls in the Red Sox favor.
John Lynch visited with the Pats today. I know Stew wouldn’t like the signing but I would like it. Two of the hardest hitting safeties in your backfield, sure they may have lost a step or two but they’ll hit the shit of anyone that they can. With the Pats bringing the safeties up to blitz that could be a lot of hitting. Pay attention Brett Favre.
Speaking of Favre. He has a tired arm. Maybe you should have stayed retired asshole.
Speaking of the NFL, I found this gem about Adam “Don’t Call Me Pacman” Jones on ESPN. You can click it to read the whole thing, but I want to highlight my favorite part:
Since being traded to the Cowboys, Jones has tried to surround himself with a better support group. He’s befriended former Cowboys Michael Irvin and Deion Sanders. Jones also has become friends with several of his new teammates, including Tank Johnson, whom the Cowboys helped return from a similar suspension last season.
So Tank that spends almost as much time with the police as Jones, Michael Irvin who is a coke head and a head of the Dallas White House, and Deion Sanders? What, Rae Carruth not available? What about OJ or Mike Vick? Fucking ridiculous.
I think that’s enough randomness to last a long weekend. Like I said, back Monday with more Olympic, Sox, and Pats summations.
