So the Nation is happy with another win today, after salvaging the Toronto series on Sunday. Dice K gets the win, a typical Dice-K outing; 5 innings, 6 hits, 1 earned run, 3 walks, 6 K's, 96 pitches, his first win of the season, and a lowered ERA to 7.17. Not terrible, not great, but a win. Great bullpen work, as usual, terrible at bats for Big Crappi, as usual, but now the team is 4-4 on the 10 game road trip, the beginning of the tough 19 game stretch. With the evil empire continuing to tear it up (17 out of 23 won) the Sox just need to continue holding down a playoff spot, and they need to make a move regarding Papi. Victor Martinez would look terrific in boston, with his great hitting, and versatility between 1st base and Catcher. With Tek only having one more year, Martinez would help the offense, provide versatility, and maybe even become the catcher of the future. Plus, the Nation has done well in the past with the last name Martinez: Pedro and Ramon ring a bell?
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)
