Game 7 — the roll continues
You think Josh Beckett is fired up enough when he pitches? Talk about a guy who seems every bit as intense as the city he now performs in.
Beckett was hollering and screaming after his shaky first inning, and you have to love that display of emotion.
The team itself? This is a pretty good roll to start the season on. They are getting it done with their pitching and defense. The offense has kind of just gotten it done when needed, and wait until Manny starts hitting.
Mike Lowell with three doubles and four hits in his first game at Fenway. It’s hard to believe that Lowell won’t make a significant improvement this season just by the sheer fact of playing 81 games in this park.
Do you all realize how good Papelbon has been so far? Five outings, two baserunners. Good morning, good afternoon, good night. Just completely lights out.
Now they put the ball in Boomer’s hand tomorrow night. I think everyone is wondering what type of stuff he will have after the way he struggled in both Spring Training and his start at Pawtucket.
As Joe Torre used to say, "Boomer is Boomer."
Personally, I think he’ll be OK. i think the adrenaline rush of being at Fenway in front of a packed house will help Wells to a decent outing his first time out.
How was that for random ramblings — aside from the three typos I had the first time before my lovely wife edited it and told me to fix everything?
talk to you all tomorrow,
