Scott Schoeneweis allowed no runs and one strikeout in one inning. In the opening game against the NY Yankees most of the relief pitchers got a shot, but after reading a blog from http://www.toeingtherubber.com about him this weekend, I was kind of anxious to see him pitch.
I need a photo of him in a red sox uniform)
I want him to do well. I would really like all of Red Sox Nation to get behind him. I think right now he needs the support.
Standing Ovation for Mike Lowell last night. Made me cry,
In other opening night news, The Red Sox Won!! Okijima got the win. 9 to 7 definetly a hitters game. That’s okay, we will take the win anyway we can. And I’m sure the weather helped. It was unseasonably warm for the first week in April. Hope it last all week.
Day off today, and I think everyone needs it. Tomorrow back to Fenway and the Yankees.
Definetly the best looking couple there!
Mike looks like he is in great shape.
Tim Wakefield and David Ortiz always on my favorite list.
And of course the Best Hockey player to ever play for the Boston Bruins, Bobby Orr!
Petey, I wish he had pitched a couple of more years with the Sox.
Looks like it was a fun time, and David attracts a lot of different people! (photo’s taken from Boston.com, without permission)
He is not alone, I really didn’t enjoy this past Season, not just because the Sox didn’t make it into the World Series, but for a lot of reasons. One of the biggest being Jerry Remy. I missed him in the booth. Just wasn’t the same with Eck. I am really praying that Jerry is fine and gets to announce all the games next year.
I loved reading that Big Papi wants to play in Boston until his carreer is over. Also that Theo thinks he is looking just fine.
Now if Theo and the Guys can get it together and sign Jason Bay.
Yes I have avoided mentioning the Yankees winning the World Series. The first time in 9 years. I guess I’m not a good sport, I really believe for all the money they pay their team they should be winning it every year. I’m really sorry Pedro didn’t pull last night’s game off, it would have been a great way to end his carreer.
Well now the Phillies can join the rest of us and just say ” there’s always next year”!
I’m pretty sure that every Boston fan out there can feel proud that I’m going to try to beat the Yankees, and I’m going to give just the same effort I always did for them. They’re special fans, and they will always have my respect.(Pedro Martinez)
I really didn’t care much about the World Series this year. The Red Sox are not playing, so what the heck, too little time to watch games I don’t really care about. Except, tonight, Pedro is back in Yankee Stadium! With a win tonight, Pitching against Pettitte who didn’t get enough rest, would force a 7th game.
Who knows what could happen if they get into a 7th game, even if it is at Yankee Stadium.
The Phillies are Pumped!! I hope this turns out to be one of the all time Great Games!
PV’s Petey, go get them!
Pedro looked really good last night. Yes I know he lost the game on two home runs he gave out. And A.J. was just a little better, but for and old guy, Pedro still has his stuff! 7 solid innings, what more could you ask for?
When he came off the field in the seventh, with the crowd chanting, “Who’s Your Daddy?” Martinez just smiled. He had to say something to a man in the stands who was holding his daughter in one arm and a beer in another, who, according to Martinez, was saying all kinds of nasty things.
“I said, ‘You have your little girl. I’m a father. I have a little girl. You have to be ashamed. How can you be so dumb?’ ” Martinez recalled.(taken from Nick Cafardo, without permission, of the Boston Globe)
Pedro is still one classy guy! And Yankee Fans, well they speak for themselves.
Okay Philly, no more fooling around, let’s get it together and take the next 3 to end it!
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.
I miss Pedro. It’s great that his team and not Manny’s is going to be in the World Series!
Even if Pedro does not play, hopefully he will walk away with another Ring!
