Back in the Saddle

Sorry to disappear for a day or two. With the team on the West Coast, these late nights really kick my butt.
I logged on today expecting a debate about Ozzie’s use of Jon Garland Monday night, but apparently 13 runs last night quickly moved us on to another topic.
Can’t speak for everyone, but how would you have liked being a member of the drawn-in Seattle infield with Jermaine Dye at the plate last night? JD promptly lined a shot into the right field stands. I’m guessing the second baseman held his breath on the pitch.
Ozzie’s line about Bobby Jenks, "When you get guys out, you’re big. When you don’t get guys out, you’re fat" was quoted in Sports Illustrated’s They Said It segment (SI, May 1).
By the way, did anyone else read Rick Reilly’s column about Ozzie an issue or so ago? Ozzie found it confusing. I found it denigrating to anyone who speaks with English as a second language. Just my opinion.
A CD to recommend … Sugarland. My wife laughs at my new Country-Western bent, but I really enjoy Jennifer Nettles’ voice. Jennifer grew up in Douglas, Ga., home of Sox hitting coach Greg Walker and sang the National Anthem last year before one of our games. Now, she has made it big with Bon Jovi.
