I love watching Manny play- he’s fun to watch but lately I’ve been getting pretty upset with him. He acts like he’s not trying and that’s just wrong. Sometimes I wonder if he’s trying to make the Sox lose or whether he just doesn’t care. I think he’s acting like a spoiled brat and is being disrespectful to the coaches and his team members. If Iacted like that I’s lose my allowance and get grounded probably for life. I hope he straightens out because it has to be hard for the other guys on the team.
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.

Man I don’t know where to start. The last few games have been painful to watch. The last 3 games in a row we were up by three runs than blew it. What is going on? Is it inuries? The bullpen or pitching? I just know one minute I’m cheering & the crying the next. Can’t wait until Schilling is back in the rotation.
I do know the 1st base ump on Wednesday night stunk. I watched replays & both our guys were safe but he called them out on first. Who knows we might have won if he made the right calls. I have to wonder if he’s blind or what. I guess it’s a good thing the 1st base ump can’t see because if he had seen Ramirez chuck his batting helmet at him Manny would have been tossed out.
Manny made an AWESOME play Wednesday night in Baltimore- he should get a Golden Glove for that play. He caught a high fly ball hit by Kevin Millar, high fived a fan in the stands and then made a double play. It was incredible. It was also pretty funny watching the guys in the bullpen watch it on TV.

Mayv=be we’ll get to see Manny hit 500 this weekend at home. Man I wish I had tickets to the games.
Tuesday night the Cuddyer catch was pretty funny. If you haven’t seen it you can watch the video here. Cuddyer was pretty lucky- he botched that play when the ball jumped out his glove & I don’t think he had a clue where it went until it bounced off the brim off his hat & into his glove.
The game last night against the Detroit Tigers was awesome! Tim Wakefield’s knuckleball, a home run by Ortiz & Manny Ramirez 497th home run. Catcher Kevin Cash did a good job too. I hope Manny hits #500 at Fenway Park & I’m there to catch it.
I’m excited about Curt Schilling starting throw the ball again. I hope he’s able to pitch before the season is over.
I’m really excited because I got a new Jonathan Papelbon picture & I’m redoing my room all Red Sox.
