Welcome home

6-0 Red Sox is a great way to start the home stand. Great way to welcome Dustin back.

Now we just have to keep up the momentum.

Rookie swats 1st Grand Slam.  “RYAN!”

Back in the dugout Ryan admitted he had never hit a grand slam before.  Congratulations Ryan, keep up the good work.

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.

5 for 5 in 5 hours, way to go Dustin

I’m really glad this series with Colorado is over.  I know we won last night, but 1 out of 3 is not so good.

Pedroia was in a slump and not much was said about it in the media, luckily before they got there talons into him he came out of the slump with a bang.  He has never been my favorite player, but it’s getting harder and harder not to love him.10

Thanks Dustin for salvaging the series for us.  We can now move on with our head held high.15

With the weekend here I may even get to watch some baseball.

I am pretty disapointed that Mike Lowell has been put on the DL.  I understand it was time to bring Dice K back up, but Mike deserves better.  I don’t want to see him leave, it will break my heart, but I think what the Sox are doing is just plain cruel

Today is the first day of Summer

June 21’s and the Sox are 1 game out of first place.  Where are all the people who said they couldn’t do it back in April, when to be honest we were having a really terrible Spring.  It’s okay, that is all behind us.  One game out of first with all rookies in the outfield.

What could have been sweeter than the hit in the ninth Saturday night against L.A. by Dustin Pedroia?  Dustin has never really been one of my favorites, but that might just be changing.

To bad Manny made the trip all the way back to Boston to lose 3 games.  Must say his mixed reception on Friday night surprised me.  Lot’s of cheering (there were boo’s too), I’m glad.  I wouldn’t have cheered but I wouldn’t have booed either,  you have to remember he did help us win the World Series in 2004 and 2007.

Not looking forward to the West Coast trip for the Sox.  That means we don’t watch the games and have to depend on the local papers for the Baseball news : (

Who’s at ShortStop…..Marco

I think Marco Scutaro will do just fine! I also thought Petey would have done all right. He’s a tough ball player and will do what he needs to do.  But bringing on Marco takes the pressure off.

FRESH START: Sox GM Theo Epstein...

He looks really good in that Red Sox shirt!

I like what I’m reading about him not only as a ball player, but a person. I think he is going to be a good fit for the team.

Jason Bay.

Now for Christmas, how about signing Jay Bay???
