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.
Sorry I haven’t been updating my blog. I’m at the Y all say every day and watching games at night so I don’t have much time. In a few minutes I’m leaving for 2 weeks at Camp Rotary but b4 I go I had to write about the most awesome day. I GOT TO MEET DUSTIN PEDROIA TODAY! Really! The Red Sox had a clinic with Pedroia for the Kid Nation captains. It was awesome. Pedroria was so nice to us and let us ask him lots of questions. He’s shorter than i thought he would be but he smiles and laughs a lot. We got to go on the field with Dustin and got to sit in the Red Sox Dug Out. I can’t believe I got to sit where Papelbon, Tony C., Johnny Pesky and all the other Red Sox players have sat for almost 100 years. It was stupendous. The other Kid Nation Captains were really cool and it was fun meeting all the other kids. Joe Chamas works for the Red Sox and set the whole thing up for us. Joe is awesome. This is the best summer of my life. I still can’t believe I’m a Captain and getting to do all these things. I can’t wait to find out what project we’ll be doing to help other kids. I’ll update my blog again in 2 weeks when I get back from Camp Rotary. Thanks again to everyone that voted for me.
I have always been a Sox fan and love my team. I hate to say anything bad about the team I love so much but it HURTS watching them play lately.
There were some bad calls by the umps last night & it cost us 2 runs but I think Dice K bears a lot of the blame for our loss. From the day we signed Dice K I’ve been saying he’s overpaid and overrated. All he knows how to do is walk people. He wouldn’t know a fast ball if it hit him in the head and he’s an embarrassment. I’ve watched every game since I can remember but when he’s pitching I have to admit I think about not watching. It’s so embarrassing.
I also have to say I think the Devil Rays deliberately walking Youk 2 times in 1 game was pretty low class and poor sportsmanship. And to all you people whining about Varitek- give hima break. He’s in a hitting slump but is a great catcher and team captain.
I don’t think Tampa should have played Sweet Caroline after sweeping us either. I think it was pretty rude.
I can’t believe how many errors Lugo has been making. I think he’s up to 12. He has really been hurting us. I feel bad for Lugo too because his performance is so bad it must be embarrassing for him. As soon as Alex Cora is off the DL he should replace Lugo. I know Papelbon is a closer but I think if we started putting him in at the bottom of the 7th it would help us & help Papelbon. I think he’s just not getting enough playing time to be effective. His talent is being wasted. It’s always good to watch Varitek. He’s an awesome catcher and good captain. I don’t even want to think about Dice K pitching tonight. I think he’s overpaid & way over rated. He walks way too many batters. If he didn’t have Papelbon to save his butt he would have a lot of losses instead of all wins.
And if anyone from Sox management reads this blog you really HAVE to sign catcher Alex Trezza. He led the CanAm league in home runs & is an awesome catcher and team captain. He was bought by the Worcester Tornadoes but he should really be in the majors. He’ll be the next Jason Varitek for the Red Sox if somebody gives him a shot. GO SOX!
