Dear Papi

Makeshift lineup. On the fly substitutions. 'Belli's ankle. Lowell's foot. Tek's knee. Trot's arm. Matt's head (?) Foulkie's whatever. ENOUGH ALREADY!! We win. And thanks go to the entire team, with special thanks to Big Papi and Curt Schilling, and honorable mentions to Little Manny and Jonathon "lights out bye bye" Papelbon. And it was a big victory, because the Yankees are flying high, much higher than the birds who pretented to be their opponents last night. But this is not an anti-Yankee blog here. It's a celebration of the Red Sox and all they stand for. The good guys. The men in white and red. Pinstripes be damned.
Schill was masterful when he needed to be last night, and the bullpen was pitch perfect. Dougie Mirabelli will miss a few games with a sprained ankle. Nothing broken, but mend he must. It seems like half our team is mending from one thing or another, or both. Javy Lopez was called to duty mere hours after his arrival. Timing? Perfect. And the rest of the weekend? 2 more in Tampa. Kudos to David for his 38th and 39th. Where would we be without him? It's Boomer or bust today. May the force be with us. How 'bout another Papelbon save? Sounds good to me.

well after tonights game we will know just how deep in the shit we really are, if there is no improvement from wells game the othernight and today, then we prettymuch know he will have nothing to offer the rest of the way

Jonathon, you and I will eventually agree on something. I lean towards a more optimistic view. I'd be happy as a pig knee-deep in sh*t if he pitched 6 great innings tonight. That's the best I'm hoping for. The worst. We saw that his last start, didn't we. And if tonight's start resembles that one, I can only hope for something better come Thursday. He's a smart pitcher-he knows what he's doing. Let's hope he can do it. Thanks for reading. And yeah, I'll take a 2 hit complete game shutout too!

Foulke's *heart*. he & his wife split up & he hasn't been the same since. =(

we need a win tonight for sure because i'm not holding my breath that we'll get one tomorrow. (would be nice if The Evil Empire obliged & just didn't play tonight too) all i can say is i'll be at The Trop, doing my best to cheer our boys to victory!

for whatever reason, i'm always rooting for boomer 16.25 era or worse. It's the sox fan in me, I guess.

but Foulke? needs a big can of suck it up and pitch. He was down in Pawtucket yesterday, don't know how he did but we need him back. Now.
