Had the BEST time at the Red Sox game against Texas on Wed. night. It was my 1st game this season! I LOVED the seats. They were close to home plate & were awesome. We were really close to the field in box seats! Red Sox won with a walk off run from Youk in the 12th innning! Grandslam by Drew, Varitek @ the plate & Papelbon on the mound in the 12th! McDonald was awesome! Now we need to get Ellsbury off the DL. If we still had Schilling & Bay we’d be looking real good!
And for all of you who were on Tek’s case last fall! Check out his batting average now!

I’m in the pre-game ceremonies on the field at Fenway today and we have a Red Sox Kid Nation Captain meeting before that! I hope it doesn’t rain! Watch for me on TV 🙂
I’m psyched Wakefield is pitching! Gotta love those knuckleballs!
Good news Dice K is going to miss at least one start! Maybe now we can stay on top in the AL East & ahead of the Yankees!
Will someone call me & let me know when the Red Sox pull Dice K out of the game. I can’t watch this 10 Million $ trainwreck anymore. I said from the day 1 signing him was a huge mistake.
And I’m sick of people saying it’s only June & these games don’t matter like the one in October. Guess what a couple of losses in June can be enough to keep us out of the playoffs come October.
I know I haven’t update this much but I have a broken arm, we moved & I have been redoing my room Red Sox. Then there’s always homework & that takes forever. Anyway for Christmas & my birthday my whole room was redone Red Sox & I got an autographed Jonathan papelbon ball & a pair of Red Sox tickets for Christmas. I told Grandma to go online today & buy more tickets but she said that’s noy gonna happen.
In Nov. I got a letter from YAZ on a HOF card with his autograph thanksing me for the get well card I made and sent to him in the hospital. Isn’t that cool? I can’t believe he wrote to me.
A couple of months ago I opened a fb account & that’s pretty cool. Some of the Red Sox trivia questions I submitted were published.
Anyway… I wrote to Tito over the winter but he didn’t write back so I hope he reads this and if anyone knows address for Red Sox scouts please forard this to them for me. Do whatever you have to do to sign Tek & PLEASE while you’re at it get Alex Trezza. Tek is great but he’s getting older & Trezza is ready to step up. GIVE HIM A SHOT! He’s got the agility, ability to lead,great batting average & is a team player. Last year he set CanAm League records If you don’t know Trezza check out his stats. Trezza had a very productive season for Worcester last year at the plate and as catcher. He ripped a three-run home run in his first at-bat in a Tornadoes uniform, was one of four Worcester hitters with at least 10 Home Runs and 50 RBIs Trezza also homered in both ends of a doubleheader vs. New Jersey on 6/24 and finished up the season strong by knocking in 28 runs in his final 32 games. Trezza threw out 32.2% of attempted basestealers, including 20 of the last 43 men (46.5%) that tried to swipe a base against him. A team leader and a gamer, Trezza was the only Tornadoes player to appear in all 94 games in 2008. That set a new Worcester record for games played in a season and tied a Can-Am League record as well. THE RED SOX NEED TREZZA!
Ouch. The 15-8 loss against the Rangers last night was really painful to watch. Tim Wakefield knows how to throw a knuckleball but just couldn’t keep it in the zone. I think Cash was a little sloppy too. He fumbled too many balls. If any scouts are out there reading this check out Worecester Tornado Catcher Alex Trezza. He can catch everything- knuckleballs, sliders and fast balls. He’s also a great team leader and led the CanAm League in home runs in 2007. The Sox really need to pick up Trezza. This loss hurt so much because we were so close to catching up to Tampa Bay in the AL Race but I think even if Tampa makes it to the playoffs that they’re gonna choke. The team is still pretty inexperienced.
