There is only the game to win. But it's baseball, ya know?

Hopefully Dice-K looks good.

Other than that, whatever.

I like Dice. So I'll watch. And winning is still more fun than losing, even winning that doesn't matter.

Nope. Broke it pinch hitting against the Yankees.

A guy named Matsuzaka is making a fairly important start today. He's no Dusty Brown, but he might be worth checking out, as was Lester yesterday.

There are five or six months out of the year in which there are no Red Sox games to see. So as long as they are playing and I'm home (or not busy at work), I'm a-watchin'. I'm not sure that warrants a "Super Fan" designation, though.

(Now, if I was an Orioles fan, and my team was 40+ games out, I might skip the final games. Maybe.)

***

Also, who knows what might be in that "meaningless game"? A triple play? No-hitter? Lind hitting 4 home runs? Lowell getting the cycle? Two fake umps behind the plate?

Or an opposing pitcher getting nailed with a line drive in the exact same way that Lester got hit a week ago. GOD, that was weird.
btw, Carrasco has a contusion in the quad area, so hopefully he'll be able to make his next... oh, never mind.

I was there last night, and that was scary. From RF, I thought that it hit him in the shin and I immediately thought of Halladay when Carrasco couldn't put any weight on the leg coming off the field. I then proceeded to horrify my poor girlfriend with a very detailed account of the Bryce Florie incident, and I don't think that she wants to go to games anymore.

Now I am bummed because it will be 6 months before I get to watch the Sox at Fenway again.

Me too, but that says more about the rest of that game. Brown was about the most awkward pitcher imaginable.

They can have a running series of jokes where Shaq trashes Mississippi State for being inferior to LSU at every sport.

Alright, you owe me. Last Oct I sat here and watched a loss to the LAAAAAs (or something like that) for my b-day. Now I wil try again from my lesser seats of the bleachers. Get it done. That way when the scoreboard announces my upcoming fortieth I can at least revel in a victory as I hang my head in shame. Not for my age, not for the ostentacious display of my fast receding youth, not for anything but thayt among my friends I count two Yankee fans. Forgive me, oh Nation.

Tito was on PTI today for five good minutes, and went on and on about how VMart changed the team. Let's hope that precludes Tek from seeing any time in the postseason.
