Boston-LA is in the air
There is a different kind of feel at Fenway today. Not only are the Celtics and Lakers getting ready to play what should be an epic Game 7 tonight — pushing the start time up here — but Manny Ramirez is coming back to Fenway tomorrow. Yes, Red Sox-Dodgers.
It is going to be a circus-like atmosphere for sure. It’s too bad Manny will likely DH instead of play left. It would have been fun to watch him talk to the fans above the Monster, etc. Also, he was always capable of some entertainment on defense.
A lot of people on my twitter page think Manny is going to get cheered instead of booed. That really surprised me. What do you guys think?
In daily news, Dice-K threw a side session today and will throw a simulated game in a few days. He could be back in the rotation by next week.
Give me some score predictions for the basketball game tonight.
Coming tomorrow, you will get my 3,500 word chronology of Manny’s time in Boston. A lot of higlights, lowlights and bloopers.
