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!
Red Sox Exhibition Game against Boston College started at 6:05!
First spring training game in 1 day 1 hour and 39 minutes. Can’t wait to see Jonathan Papelbon , Jacoby Ellsbury, Kevin Edmund Youkilis, David Ortiz, Clay Buchholz, Dustin Pedroia, Jason Varitek & all the Red Sox back on the field!

I hope everyone is watching Big Papi’s Press Conference! I KNEW BIG PAPI NEVER USED STEROIDS! There were 104 people on the list & only 83 positive test results & some of the the tests could have been from the same players. I hope all you sports writers that talked smack about Ortiz apologize & then keep your mouths shut until you know the FACTS!
Sox/Yankees games usually are long but 15 Innings is a little crazy especially when it’s still 0-0 going to into the 15th!
Can we clone Beckett & maybe we should bring back Schilling. Can[‘t we pay someone to take Dice K off our hands?
I won 2nd place in the http://www.iwontcheat.com/ essay contest about what I would say 2 my favorite athlete if they were caught using illegal drugs. Now people are saying Big Papi took something illegal! I hope he didn’t do anything wrong on purpose. Maybe he just drank an energy drink or something that had something bad in it & he didn’t know it. I would be so upset if Papi cheated, I would rather lose than win by cheating. But I don’t like all the newspaper reporters writing mean columns about Papi because we don’t know what happened yet! I think he was brave to go out & play last night after the news came out about the drug tests & I respect him for that! Until someone proves he took steroids & knew he was taking them I still believe in Big Papi! I believe he will tell the team & his fans the truth about what happened!
AWESOME!!! Beckett’s 100th win. He pitched the whole game & shut out KC! Nuff Said! This was a great series! Papi, Bay, Tek ! Go Boys!
And people please LOSE the pink hats! Pink is my favorite color but it’s the Boston RED Sox! Even when I was four years old I wouldn’t wear pink Red Sox gear even though everything else I owned was pink. Do you have any idea how silly you look? When I see fans wearing pink hats or t-shirts with little white letters- I can’t even tell who you’re rooting for. Show your team pride & wear TEAM COLORS! What do you think the players think when they look at in the stands and see a sea of pink? This whole pink hat/shirt thing is so embarrassing!
I just got back from Fenway. AWESOME GAME! We beat the Braves 6-5. Big Papi hit a HR & Green got a walk off HR to win it! I got to see Papelbon pitch!
View imageThe Kid Nation Captains got to go on the field for pre game ceremonies! Our seats were under cover too so we didn’t even get wet. It was so much fun & our next Kid Nation project is the one I suggested- backpacks for kids! Hood is buying the back packs but we’re gonna collect the stuff to fill them. I’m so excited!
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.
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!.
