Through five innings tonight, a couple of thoughts.

It is still hard to believe that my beloved Red Sox flash such leather. The play by Lowell throwing from his butt was impressive.

I'm sure glad whoever was running the front office was able to veto John Henry who allegedly wanted to sign Burnett rather than trade for Beckett. AJ just looks like a guy getting ready to give up the big hit. And Beckett looks good firing those mid 90 BBs toward homeplate.

And Josh is one guy you want on your team. Imagine how much we would hate him in pinstripes. I love how its okay for Beckett to yell at Hillenbrand and Howard for not playing the game right and/or showing him up, but its okay for him to scream profanities, bounce around and pump his fists after a strikeout.


  1. Things sure went downhill fast.

  2. It sure did. I'll still take Josh over Burnett - yikes elbow injury?? $55MM??

    I do wonder about the HBP and whether it was a message pitch. of course now that they lost, he is not going to even hint at it. But after that he couldn't really pitch inside, so the Jays looked for stuff to drive. And they did.

    And today looks tough with the pen a little thin after last night.

    And to top it all off, the B lineup is back at it. bottom 4:


    Not to mention Tek gets his first HR last night and rides the pine today against Halladay. I guess he did catch a lot of innings and it is a long haul, but I'm still scratching my head.

  3. This game sucks.

    A few more runs for the Jays and, on paper, were looking at a .500 team.
