I watch quite a bit of Baseball this weekend. I didn’t expect much, boy was i surprised! First on Friday night they didn’t postpone the game until after 10:00. It was pouring, everyone knew the game was not going to be played, but they just wouldn’t pospone, so we waited.
Saturdays game was a little disapointing, but what the heck we knew we were out of the running, and it was Mike Lowell’s farewell game. Just writing that makes me cry. I can’t believe he won’t be with the team come Spring Training time.
Then came the make up game. No starters except for J.D. as DH. What the hell were we trying to lose? Surprise, we won it in the 10th!!
Yesterdays game made me cry again, possibly the last time Jason Varitek will step up to the plate as a Red Sox. He will always be the team Captain to me.
So what if the Yankees won the Wild Card, we knew we couldn’t.
But we won the game, the weekend, and we looked terrific!!
So go play your Playoff Games and we will sit back and wait for Spring. But we have to Thank the Sox for a Great Ending to a crazy season.
My daughter went to a good bye time for Mike Lowell at Jerry Remys new restaurant, and won a Wally Doll, autographed by Jerry. I have an original Wally, but this one is so much nicer, it has Jerry’s name on it’s butt, and I love Jerry. ( by the way the Wally doll is now mine, because I lent her my Mike Lowell shirt)
I will probably do a blog saying Good Bye to Mike Lowell, but right now I just can’t.
I know where we stand right now, but I don’t think for one second all is lost. Our pitchers need a little shaking up. Paplebon is surely still banging his head against a wall this morning. But you must keep in mind who started the game, and gave up 6 runs , after the first inning the guys already had to work there butts off to win this game.
And you know what they did it. The guys worked really hard, V Mart, Youk, Papi and JD all made it look like that’s the job they were hired to do.
So back to the Evil Empire tonight and hopefull the end result will be a much happier one!
