Human Buzz Saw

Once in a while during the long baseball season, the Boston Red Sox come across a pitcher that they have no chance to beat. A human buzz saw. Last night his name was Chris Young, a 6 foot 10 inch pitcher for the San Diego Padres who throws lights-out. On Saturday night he limited the Red Sox to only one hit in seven innings, and his San Diego club defeated the Sox 6-1. Wakes kept it close until the 5th and the 6th, but it was too late. Truthfully, there was no way the Padres could have lost this game, and that's because of Young's dominance. Looking on the bright side, and there always is a bright side in MY world, Snyder and Timlin were just fine coming out of the 'pen. And a game like this makes it so easy to "turn the page," and that the Yankees lost a heartbreaker makes it easier still. So we go on. And on. Through the month of October.

Today's late afternoon game has a marquee pitching matchup. It's 10-1 Josh "Baseball" Beckett versus 9-1 Jake Peavy, whose numbers are astounding. San Diego is a darn good club, and taking two of three sure would be sweet. But if it doesn't happen, it's not the end of the world. We'll be going north to Seattle for three, and then, finally, Fenway. Home cooking, the Green Wall, family, friends and loved ones. And the fans, those special marvelous Red Sox-mad fans. Won't that be nice?

Click on the title of this post for more on the San Diego dominance that was Saturday. And now we turn the page and look forward to late afternoon Sunday baseball, as only our Sox can do it. Have a wonderful Sunday with YOUR family, friends and loved ones, and as always, thanks for stopping in. I don't know what I'd do without you. I'd probably walk around the house muttering unintelligible words to no one. I'd be, as John Lennon wrote and sang in a song from 1965's Rubber Soul, my favorite Beatles' album, for many reasons, a NOWHERE MAN. That's what he thought of himself then, in 1965, a sell-out pop singer in a wildly popular band. He was wrong. He was the force behind the best band that ever was, or ever WILL be. But I digress...where was I? I know! GO SOX! GO RSN! Go Josh. Take care, my readers. Love ya all!!!!! More than you'll ever know.....

The Padres are tough, 2 out of 3 would be nice. And a big thank you to the Giants!

Sorry I haven't stopped by...I am the eternal optimist but we might need to ne prepared for more of the same with Peavy. Has the earmarks of another tight low-scoring game.
Go Josh!!
