So, it’s goes without saying that I am having a hard time focusing on anything right now. Work? Not likely. My mind is focused on one thing and one thing only….that I am Shipping Up To Boston tomorrow and have tickets to the Red Sox/Yankees. Do I have tickets to one game? Yep. Two games? Yep. All THREE games? I sure do.
Excited is the understatement of the century. I got to see Red Sox play the Yankees at Yankee Stadium…and unfortunately lose in a 15 inning marathon. And now, I get to see the Red Sox play the Yankees at home….and hopefully WIN.
Friday. Brad Penny is on the mound. I know he’s not the most liked by Red Sox Nation, but I am not one of the haters. I seem to have a habit of having a fondness for the players that others give a hard time too…coughs…Drew…coughs. (Not Lugo though…nope, loathe him just like the rest). I happen to think Penny is decent…and for a #5 guy, not too shabby. Pitch count is obviously an issue. I know it. You know it. B Penny knows it. Other than that, I think the guy does pretty well and usually gives us a shot to win if our bats are anything close to alive.
Saturday. Tazawa is the guy. I wish it was Michael Bowden, but the Red Sox don’t make their rotation to my wishes. I like Taz though. I think he has tons of potential….and has pitched well so far. We know how his pitching last time against the Yankees turned out. Let’s hope this time, he gets some revenge.
Sunday. Swoons. Joshie Beckett. I love seeing him on a mound. Can’t we make copies of him like the movie Multiplicity? We promise to not make copies of the copies. Can we? It is Beckett vs. Sabathia. Umm…can’t wait. Josh got his sucky start out of the way and I am sure he will be back to his Kick Arse Commanderness.
Of course…the wrench in the works. The weather report. That tropical storm or hurricane…Ana or Bill…is looking to really mess with the weekend weather report. Glares. Hopefully the games will get played. I just plan on getting all kinds of wet.
LET’S GO RED SOX!!!!!
