Who am I?

Born and raised in California, my dad is from Massachusetts and so a hardcore Red Sox fan. He passed the obsession on to me at the ripe old age of 4. I've been watching them ever since. Now I catch every game I can thanks to the Directv MLB package and whenever the Sox come to town I'm sitting in the stands.

Nice posts on the Red Sox. You seem so knowledgeable about baseball, and while I just signed up a few days ago, I've read a couple of your blogs and they're interesting to read for sure. I'm not so much into baseball as I am hockey and football, but the passion you put into your writing makes it interesting. Keep up the good work! Check out my site and see what you think.

What a Difference a Day Makes posted on 09/17/2008

When I posted on Monday about the Blue Jays weekend series, I was afraid I wouldn't have any finger nails left by the time Dice-K and Kazmir left the mound. Turns out it was a fear unrealized - at least 24 hours ago.

Monday's first game against the Rays saw Kazmir so off his game he had already given up nine runs by the third inning. And by the time Dice-K left the mound there were several more on the board. Why you may ask? It's all because Monday wasn't a baseball game. It was a long-ball game. Of the nine starters on the bench, 6of them, that's right, six of them, hit balls out of the park; which is quite a feat since the Trop is hidden inside a dome. As a matter of fact, Jason Bays' homer was hit so hard it disappeared inside one of the catwalks never to be seen again.

But that was Monday night. A great game not only because we won, but because the win tied us with the Rays for first place in the AL East. A place the Sox haven't seen since before the All Star break.

Sox Take the Series from the Jays posted on 09/15/2008

Only Saturday's morning game was the blemish on the series. The three others were all great games with awesome catches, timely hits and even a few nail biting moments.

Friday's game saw Wakefield pitch the game he wanted to pitch against the Rangers last week. Instead of an inning and 2/3, the knuckler pitched a solid 8. They were so solid that not one Jay scored. While the rain bogged down spectators and players alike, it clearly didn't hamper Wake's knuckler which was floating every which way. With 4 K's and not a single walk, it's probably one of Wake's best outings this season.

Meanwhile on the offensive Jed Lowrie went two for two with a pair of RBI's. Papi had a 2-run double in the 7th and Kevin Cash hit one over the monster for three more in the bottom of the 8th. Those seven runs gave the Sox a much needed win on a night when most of the other games on the east coast were rained out including the Rays/Yankees opener.

Good News and Bad News posted on 08/20/2008
After a horrific weekend against the Jays, the Sox are back in a groove.  They've taken the first two games against the Orioles and are thereby keeping a tight grip on the lead in the wild card race.The good news that I referred to in the title is that the Sox are on the road and so far they're winning.  Better news is that Varitek hit home runs in each of the first two games in Baltimore.  And after 3 and a half weeks as a member of the Red Sox, Jason Bay is making it obvious the trade of Manny was a smart move.  He had two homers in the first game and three hits in yesterday's.  And while Youkilis was hitless in Monday's game, he helped give the Sox some breathing room last night when he launched homer #24 into the cheap seats in the 5th inning.And speaking of br

Wait, What was the Final Score? posted on 08/13/2008
In case you missed last night's game, it was a roller coaster.  Dad was so sure we'd won, he actually called me at the end of the first inning.  Now, as I've mentioned before in this blog, I TIVO the games, which means if you know what's going on, DO NOT, under any circumstances, tell me.  I'll see the game eventually and I don't want to know.  But sometimes Dad can't help himself and he ruins it for me.  So, yesterday he called all excited.  "I know you don't want to know, but I have to tell you," he said"Fine, tell me."  "We're up 10-zip and it's only the first inning."  Well, it was only the first inning and these are the Red Sox after all.  Needless to say 10-zip wasn't the final score.  Dad... may

Are the Bats Back? posted on 08/12/2008
So the Red Sox split the series with the White Sox this weekend. The two they lost, they lost by just a run or two. The two they won, they won by 4 runs each.
Seems the bats don't like to play every day. Too bad, because our players show up on a daily basis and deserve to hit the ball. I don't know if it's a lack of batting or if the other team's pitching is really good, but something's gotta change. The Sox can win every other day and expect to make the playoffs. As a matter of fact, it's a miracle they're still leading the wild card albeit by only a game and a half. But that's another blog for another time. Let's get back to this weekend the the first stint against the Chi Sox.The two games we lost weren't due to bad pitching on the Red Sox's part. Let me rephrase that. It wasn't due to
