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!
I know I haven’t update this much but I have a broken arm, we moved & I have been redoing my room Red Sox. Then there’s always homework & that takes forever. Anyway for Christmas & my birthday my whole room was redone Red Sox & I got an autographed Jonathan papelbon ball & a pair of Red Sox tickets for Christmas. I told Grandma to go online today & buy more tickets but she said that’s noy gonna happen.
In Nov. I got a letter from YAZ on a HOF card with his autograph thanksing me for the get well card I made and sent to him in the hospital. Isn’t that cool? I can’t believe he wrote to me.
A couple of months ago I opened a fb account & that’s pretty cool. Some of the Red Sox trivia questions I submitted were published.
Anyway… I wrote to Tito over the winter but he didn’t write back so I hope he reads this and if anyone knows address for Red Sox scouts please forard this to them for me. Do whatever you have to do to sign Tek & PLEASE while you’re at it get Alex Trezza. Tek is great but he’s getting older & Trezza is ready to step up. GIVE HIM A SHOT! He’s got the agility, ability to lead,great batting average & is a team player. Last year he set CanAm League records If you don’t know Trezza check out his stats. Trezza had a very productive season for Worcester last year at the plate and as catcher. He ripped a three-run home run in his first at-bat in a Tornadoes uniform, was one of four Worcester hitters with at least 10 Home Runs and 50 RBIs Trezza also homered in both ends of a doubleheader vs. New Jersey on 6/24 and finished up the season strong by knocking in 28 runs in his final 32 games. Trezza threw out 32.2% of attempted basestealers, including 20 of the last 43 men (46.5%) that tried to swipe a base against him. A team leader and a gamer, Trezza was the only Tornadoes player to appear in all 94 games in 2008. That set a new Worcester record for games played in a season and tied a Can-Am League record as well. THE RED SOX NEED TREZZA!
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.
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 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 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 haven’t been around much because my Nana died and we were out of town. But don’t forget to watch the Red Sox game on NESN Wednesday night. The Red Sox called last week and I was invited to be on the Roush Fenway Racing Pre-Game Ceremony with some other kids from Red Sox Kid nation. This will be my 5th game this year.
Voting for the Kid Nation Captains contest ended Sunday but they haven’t announced the winners yet. I’m so excited and so nervous. I’m going crazy waiting. I hope I win.
I am SO HAPPY Curt Schilling is doing okay after his operation. Man I hope he can play baseball again after he gets better.
Actually I hope all our guys on the DL get better soon. But I’d rather have them on the DL now than when we’re in the play offs.
And congrats to Jerry Remy on 20 years with NESN. REM DAWG ROCKS
Losing to the A’s was tough but I think Beckett did a great job last night mowing them down. I’m glad Varitek wasn’t seriously injured hurt he got hit in the back of the neck with the bat. The West Coast games are tough to stay up for. I’m so tired today.
Please don’t forget to vote for me for captain of Kid Nation. My essay is the entry b4 this one.
I am so excited. I can’t believe it. The Boston Red Sox just called. I am one of 25 finalists in the Boston Red Sox Kid Nation Captains Contest! really! They called me. it said Red Sox on the caller ID. At first I couldn’t say anything. I just jumped up and down. Then I screamed so loud my Grandma said she’s almost deaf I can’t believe it. Somebody pinch me. They only pick 12 kids to be captains so I need everybody to vote for me when the voting starts
And JON LESTER pitched a no hitter. This is the best day! Jon Lester had cancer & now he pitched a no hitter. It was only the 18th no hitter since the Red Sox started. It was awesome
Yesterday I went to the Celtics Game 7 with some people from the YMCA. It was fun being with my friends. I’m glad the Celtics won but I’m even happier the Red Sox won & I’m so EXCITED about the Kids Nation. Everyone PLEASE vote for me. I would be a good captain. Here’s my essay I wrote for the contest & my answer to the question about what I’d ask a player. I have to go to bed now because it’s past my bedtime & I’ll be up late tomorrow because it’s my play. I’m Lucy in “You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown.”
