Wakefield became the oldest pitcher in franchise history to win a game. He took the title away from the “Big Cheese” himself, Dennis Eckersley. Eck was 43 years and 349 days old when he won his last game, and Wake is 44 years and 38 days old today!!
Just to make the win that much better it was against Garza. Of all the pichers in Tampa he is the one I dislike the most. His spitting is gross. I can’t stand watching him.
Day off today while they travel to the West Coast, Oakland and Seattle, then back home.
The season is winding down. Doesn’t look like a Championship this year, but stranger things have happen. Beating Tampa 2 out of 3 games, what the he77, It’s not over yet!
It can’t possibly be over, well I guess it can, but where did the Season go? I guess it didn’t help I had a lot of personal stuff going on. And when I did tune into a game I wasn’t listening to Jerry Remy, I was listening to Eck, and let me tell you I walked away from quite a few games after a few innings. Please Jerry be well and come back next season in full force!
Seeing Big Papi smile always makes me smile and I like to start my morning off that way.
We are off to the west coast. Jon Lester is pitching the first game, I think all is well with us and the Red Sox right now.
Let the games begin!!
Who would have ever thought 2 months ago that Big Papi would have 26 home runs before the end of this season? Well I did, I never stopped believing. So when I hear the sportcasters say those things it irritates me. Papi just got off to a slow start, and all that steroid crap didn’t help. But he is back in the groove. And what better time? Tonight we start the last series of the year with the New York Yankees. It should be pretty exciting Baseball. And I am really looking forward to it.
I missed most of this week, not feeling good and just couldn’t stay up to watch TV. But I feel better and besides it’s the Yankees. The only bad thing is Eck will be the color announcer. I don’t know how much of that I can take. I may watch the game with no volume.
Lester starts tonight, Good Luck Jon.
