About Last Night
Knowing people on this site (at least in a cyber sense), I am assuming that I was not the only person who did not sleep a wink last night. Late night TV can be pretty bad (how can that be with 400-something channels). Thank goodness Imus In The Morning came on MSNBC at 5 am.
Last night was FRUSTRATING. For much of the season, we decried the inconsistent pitching. Now, we have gotten two outstanding performances from Gar and Javier and haven’t posted a victory.
We need one tonight. No excuses. No whining. No complaining. We need to get back on track.
Most of you probably saw a lot of Ryan Sweeney this spring (thanks to Comcast Sports Net), but you have to like what you see of the young player, nice swing, athletic, aggressive. He may stick around for awhile.
Are all good. Dye is back in the lineup. Buehrle checked out fine and is scheduled to pitch tomorrow. Bobby has some soreness in his hip but should be good to go tomorrow, according to Head Trainer Herm Schneider in Boston.
To Mark Newman at MLBAM (with major help from Maria) for posting the pages from your amazing "Blog Book" on the left-hand side of the page. The job you guys did in putting this together continues to humble me. We hope you enjoy "flipping" through the pages to check out other Sox fans who frequent the site.
Limited tickets remain for the four games this weekend, although Saturday is virtually sold out. Act now if you want to come out and cheer on your Sox.
I need to sleep tonight (we all need to sleep tonight), so we need to win.
