More On Kazmir, And The Holiday, And Us.......
I read a line from MBF (Mad Boston Fan), linked at right and what should be an everyday read. And the line went something like, Kazmir was a stormcloud for the Sox offense, dousing any chance of more fireworks, fireworks we have delightedly gotten used to as we win something like 12 of every 14 games. A pace we cannot keep up, but we won't be far off. MBF's daily game recaps are required reading for "the morning afters." If not before. But my response?
My thoughts, such as they are.........Kazmir was more than a stormcloud. He was a potent perfect storm, wily with his use of the slider and changeup, both devastating last night. And when it was time for the #1 pitch, he was on it, with movement. Tip our caps. 4:30 cannot come soon enough. Schill vs. Fossil, a lefty we can (we better!) hit. Lumber ho! And Schill. A great combo. Happy 4th, our 230th b'day. Wow, older than me!
AND THAT IS THAT. Fire up the grills in the late afternoon, and enjoy LIVE RED SOX BASEBALL with the festivities. And health and happiness, of course, to all my readers, and almost everyone else living on this planet. There are the obvious exceptions, of course. But they are from afar, and don't know of American baseball. They know of guns, and blood and a different kind of justice. A way of life as foreign to us as would be a planet, close or far from the sun, ours or another.
