Big Papi!

David Ortiz holds the trophy after...

How sweet it is! After the start of the season he had and the abuse he took from the media and some fans, Papi is back with a bang!

According to Boston.com Big Papi is one of the top respected players in base ball today.




Kerry for Youk

It was very nice of Senator Kerry to take time out of his busy day to ask the voters of Massachusetts to stop for a second and vote for Kevin Youklis.

On the other hand the way people have been getting injured, maybe it’s not such a good idea. Kevin had a little ankle cramp last night, he should be back tonight.  We really don’t want anything worse to happen to him.

Nick Swisher is asking all the celebrities(sp) to push a vote for him.

Also up for consideration for the final spot are Michael Young (Texas), Paul Konerko (Chicago White Sox) and Delmon Young (Minnesota) . Voting ends on Thursday. So if you want to keep Kevin home and safe, and don’t want Swisher to make it, there are other options.  My personal favorite is Delmon Young.

Stay healthy Kevin, there is at least 3 more months of Baseball to play. 


I’m sorry I didn’t vote for you to play in the All Star Game, but really Kevin, just think how lucky you have been this year.  With so many of the guys injured how could we chance sending you to the West Coast to a Game that really dosen’t mean anything?

Okay, that said, everyone should be voting for you today.  You have to win, if nothing else just to beat Swisher!

Come on Red Sox Nation, let’s show them what we’ve got! Vote for Youklis today! Don’t wait until it’s too late.It was a frustrating day all around for Kevin Youkilis and the Red Sox, who failed to sweep the Orioles because of Sunday's loss.

All dressed up with no where to go

Joe Maddon didn’t use either of our starters.Josh Beckett and Tim Wakefield watched batting practice. Neither pitcher took the mound during the game.

Yeah, I’d like to have pitched, but it’s an experience I’ll remember for the rest of my life,” he said. “I’ll cherish it forever. It’s just awesome being in this clubhouse with the greatest players in the world and being able to partake in my first All-Star Game at 42 years old. (Tim Wakefield being quoted in the Boston Herald)

Red Sox starter Tim Wakefield sat on a float in the Red Carpet Parade. The 42-year-old knuckleballer was joined by his family.

At least Jay Bay, Youk and Paplebon got to play.  And they did us proud!!
