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!
What a week! Sometimes I cry when we lose a game but all of a sudden losing last niight doesn’t seem quite as important as some of the other things going on.
I’m so sad to hear Jerry Remy had cancer and has been sick. I hope he gets well. I met him last year at a Kid Nation Captain board meeting & he was awesome. When i can’t go to Fenway for a game I always watch Remy on NESN.
I’m still really angry at Joba Chamberlain for throwing at the heads of our players. I think he does it on purpose. This has been going on since 2007. First Youk & now Bay. I don’t understand why he is allowed to get away with all that stuff. I hope he gets suspended before someone really gets hurt. I don’t want to see anyone get beaned like Tony C. did.
Now Manny doing steroids. Geesh. I almost got sick when I heard this. I don’t know why anyone drinks alcohol or does drugs. Last week I wrote an essay for iwontcheat.com about what I would say to my favorite baseball player if he was caught cheating or using steroids.
So now this is what I would say to Manny.
When Mannny refused to play last year & we lost games because of his attitude I forgave him. I even cried the 1st time I saw him in a Dodgers uniform even though I thought he was a traitor for not playing his best when he was a Red Sox. . He’s supposed to be an example to kids everywhere and now I think he’s a bigger loser than I did after he threw a game for the Yankees last season. Now everybody is going to criticize the Red Sox and think our team are cheaters because of Manny. I even heard someone say today we didn’t deserve to win the WS in 2004 because Manny was probably on drugs then. He hurt kids, all baseball fans, all baseball players, his teammates on the Dodgers & the Red Sox because of what he did. He is a cheater. I would rather see a player strike out & play fair than get a home run by using steroids. Manny- you need to grow up, respect yourself, play fair & stop being a jerk!.
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.
I had a bad week. My favorite counselor from the YMCA Miss Jocelyn drowned in Salem and I was sad. Her funeral was Friday and I was really sad. I loved her a lot. She taught me to swim and always made us laugh. She was a real good artist too. My Grandma wanted to cheer me up so we went to Boston and we got tickets for the game from Hig’s tickets. They were awesome seats. We were 3 rows behind the Red Sox Bullpen. Jonathan Papelbon was hanging out in the Bullpen and I got to get real close to him. I got a picture of his car in the players parking lot too. He has a cool black Mercedes. The Red Sox beat the White Sox BIG TIME
I just got back from Camp Rotary and it was awesome. I love camp. Grandma sent me the sports pages every day so I could follow the Red Sox even though we don’t have a TV or radio at camp. I can’t wait to see the game tonight. I’ve REALLY REALLY missed watching the games. I’m kinda sorry Manny is gone I really liked watching him play. But he acts like a two year old. He was acting like a spoiled brat and like he wasn’t even part of the team. I don’t like the way he talked about the Red Sox owners and Tito. It was too disrespectful and rude. If I acted like that I’d be grounded forever and lose my allowance too. I like Jason Bay. I think he’s good and I’m excited about watching him play. I’m glad Varitek is coming out of his hitting slump I knew he would. I’m so excited on Aug. 13 I get to go to Fenway again for the Red Sox Kid Nation captain Meeting with Jerry Remy and Regular Rob. I have a bunch of old Jerry Remy baseball cards. Maybe he’ll sign one for me.
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.
