Hmm, a day ending in Y and the Red Sox win... again. Today it was Asian sensation Dice-K, (not to be confused with that bum from the Bronx, Special-K). Dice-K moves to 8-0 now for the Sox.
The Sox have just completed a 7 game home stand sweep, after dropping 4 in a row. That's called rebounding from a hiccup in the road. A brief look at the last week:
The win streak began with a win by Dice-K, a 5-3 win over Milwaukee. Next up was a come from behind win in which young reliever Craig Hansen picked up the win, 7-6 over the Brew Crew. Following were 2 more wins, reliable Josh Beckett and then wunderkid Jon Lester in his shutout performance (7-0) Mon night. What gets really interesting then is spot starter Justin Masterson , a double A call up who beat KC 2-1, and then the next day ex Cy-Young winner Bartolo Colon begins rewarding the REd Sox Gamble on him by pitching his first win in a few seasons. Finally, Dice K wins again today to put a nice bow on it.
Meanwhile, the evil empire finally won again last night, improving(?) their record to 21-25. Woo-hoo. And for good buddy Woody, who loves the Runs Scored/Runs against ratio, the Yankees carry a -20, 189/209. Oh happy day.
Super smart (and oh so humble) I often wonder if heightened intelligence is a blessing or a curse. Recognizing the evil, lies, and corruption that dominate the world, I often retreat into films, comics, sports, and other distractions. Bread and Circuses, baby!! (Don't you just wanna hang out with me now; I must be a barrel of laughs). My blog is where you can read these thoughts, and soon enough you will begin to see, I'm a pretty cool guy. (There's that humility again)
