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.
Please vote for Jerry Remy EVERY DAY during Sept. for the Ford C. Frick Award. It is given to a baseball broadcaster that has made contributions to baseball. I think Remy deserves it.
Don’t forget to vote for Youk for the Clemente award for all the work he has done to help people especially kids.
I know it’s Manny’s Birthday so I hope he hits #500 tonight! That would be awesome. I hope when Manny hits 500 the person that catches the ball gives it to him for his kids. I think that’s what I’d do with it if I caught it. It’s been tough to keep up on the blog this week because of the West Coast games. I have to go to bed before they even start so I recorded them. I go to school and then the Y. I get home, eat dinner & do homework then watch the games I recorded until bedtime- so I haven’t had much time to blog. The games this week have been rough but hopefully we’ll do better in the series this weekend. Go Sox.
