I know some Red Sox fans that really liked Justin Masterson. I was not one of them. I thought he was a nice enough guy, but we have better pitchers. Well last night he pretty much said ” in your face, Red Sox”. It’s nights like this when you start to wonder about them getting rid of someone. Sometimes it just comes back and bites you in the butt!
“They were the greatest of players and best of friends,” Henry said. “We felt that it would be fitting to dedicate a statue to the memory of not just their time on the hallowed field of Fenway Park but also to the steadfast loyalty and devotion they had for one another as well as their lifelong love for the game of baseball.”~John Henry, Principal Owner, Boston Red Sox,speaking about Johnny Pesky, Dominic DiMaggio and Bobby Doerr, Ted Williams
What a wonderful thing to live long enought to see yourself immortalized! I am not quite old enough to say I saw them play, but I am old enought to say I listened to the games they played in. Baseball should have more Ambassadors like these two Gentlemen!
I very rarely write anything about a Yankee, especially one we tried to get to play for us and they went the way of the money, but I am getting a lot of pleasure out of Mark Teixeira’s dry spell. The media is all over him, and he is not to happy with the negative press. It’s nice they are picking on someone other than Big Papi right now.
Lee made the Yankees look foolish, striking out 10, including Rodriguez three times and Mark Teixeira twice. Stunned fans fled Yankee Stadium by the hundreds in the eighth inning. The Yankees did not score until the ninth, and that was on a throwing error.(borrowed without permission from Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe)
That paragraph says an awful lot, especially about the Yankee Fans. Red Sox Fans are never stunned when we are losing, we know there is always the next inning. And to leave the park before the game is over, never, especially a world series game.
I know people that have sat hours through rain storms, and 40 degrees. Thats a true fan. Not someone stunned because your star pitcher has a bad night.
Tonight it’s Pedro Martinez against A.J. Burnett. I just hope Pedro is all fired up, being back at Yankee Stadium. It would be so perfect for him to get a win tonight! But if the tables turn and the Yankees pull this one off, you can be sure the fans will stick around to “Boo” the Philly’s.
