As time goes by

I remember the first time I ever went to Fenway to watch the Sox play.  Sure I had heard them on the radio and watched a few games on TV, but sitting on the first base line, right over the dugout. Unbelieveable! It was love at first sight.

My problem is I can’t let go.  When I like a player, or coach, or even manager I can’t bear to see them leave.  Either with injury or a trade or retirement.

Well it’s happening again, Mike Lowell is retiring.  I understand his hip just won’t come back. I know when he is out on the field he gives it all, but he feels this is the end.  Time to throw in the towel. 

I really missed him on third base this season, and hate the thought of him off the sox permanently

But time goes on and things change, and I’m sure someday the Sox will have another third baseman that wins the Golden Glove.  I just hope we don’t have to wait to long.

Adios` Mike, you made it look so easy!

So Handsome!

    Love your loyalty to Mike Lowell, who, IMHO is one of the great Red Sox of the past 20 years. I’ll miss him too. I also love the photo of your family with the WS trophies – sweet! Granddaughter looks like she enjoyed that quite a bit!

    BUT – as for your wait until the next Red Sox 3d baseman wins a Gold Glove – Does the name “Adrian Beltre” ring a bell, or what?

    Beltre is probably the Red Sox team MVP for 2010 at this point. He has to be in the running for 3B Golden Glove this year, because he has been nothing short of spectacular.

      Thank you. It’s been a while, but I think I’m back blogging. And my Granddaughter now almost 12, is still a huge Red Sox Fan. It runs in the family!!

    I think Beltre has been good, but spectacular.I don’t know about that. On the other hand I can’t think of anyone that’s been better. So this could be his year.
    And the way the Sox are playing, The Wild Card isn’t out of reach yet!
    I think if the Sox win the Wild Card position, Beltre is a shoe in for the Golden Glove!
