First day of Autumn

I am not a big fan of Autumn, things end in the fall.  The leaves turn color and drop off the trees, it gets dark early and baseball comes to an end.

Sure there are still 10 regular season games, and then the playoffs, and then of course the World Series.  But if the Red Sox are not in the Series, well it’s just one more reason to dislike Autumn.

The game last night was really good, but it was against Baltimore, and we should have done that in the first 2 games of the series.  I have been saying all along that it’s not over yet, but after losing 2 out of 3 to Baltimore, I finally had to concede that it is over.

With no pressure going into the Yankees series they should be pretty enjoyable games.

PAPI LOVE: David Ortiz (right) gets a...

Wish we had seen more of this.

I hope Mike gets to play a couple of games to end the season.

I know he has to retire, I know his hip won’t stand much more, but I will miss him.

I know why people don’t read the sports page

I think Gerry Callahan from the Boston Herald and Dan Shaughnessy from the Boston Globe,are the same person.

They both contine to write negatively about the Sox.  They won’t give them a break no matter what is going on.  Injuries, so what, the rest of the team makes a zillion dollars so we should still be in first place.  So what’s the problem?

We still have 31 games to play, that means we are not out of it yet!  How about some of that “Home Town Spirit”, if we beat the Yankees, and we beat TampaBaltimore………….well there is a hell of a good chance we will make the wild card.  It’s not like we didn’t do it before (2004) when the writers ( see above) had us down and out.

Hopefully it all starts tonight against Baltimore.

I’m So Sorry Dustin

Okay, so I never really cared much for him, but this was the year, he was doing great, went into a slump and started doing great again.  I tried not to like him, but he made it so hard.  I have a record for liking players and having them get hurt.  I also have a record for liking players and getting them traded, so I guess were lucky he’s still with the team.  Get well quickly Dustin.  And I promise I’ll keep it a secret that I like you.ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST: Red Sox...

Now Victor Martinez, I’ve liked him since he started playing for us.  Sorry.

Great California trip, I have friends and family that were at the Giant, RedSox games.  I know they were watching with mixed emotions.   

Again we come away with a 1 out of 3 win. Can’t wait to get the Sox home.

Off tonight, then 2 games at home with Tampa Bay, then a much needed second day off and Baltimore comes to town.

Hopefully by next week most of the injured are back on the field.

2 out of 3 ain’t bad!

Thanks to my I.T. people for getting me back on line. You guys are the Best

Down to Baltimore tonight. The season is winding down so quickly. Just think in less than 3 weeks we will be in the playoffs.

Last night could have gone better, but what the heck, the Angels are leaving mad at the umpires and not us. That’s okay. 

Didn’t like the accusation that the Umps are intimidated by the fans in Boston. I really don’t think the Umpires are intimidated by anyone.  They hold the power. They can throw you out of a game, get you suspended maybe even get you banned if you do something bad enough.

Looks like it’s going to be a really nice weekend for baseball!
