bases on balls for the win1. What I'm thinking is that if the Sox can prove that more than 50% of the fans in attendance are Boston fans, that they should just get to bat in the bottom half of the inning, whether the game is being played at Fenway or not.
2. I love Manny Ramirez. I'm so glad he finally showed up to Spring Training.
3. Does that Kinsler kid know that Mike Timlin is going to skull-fuck him for using "Black Betty" as his batting music?
4. Having Eric Frede and Jim Rice anchor the pre-game coverage and post-game show reminds me of that game last August when the starting battery was Kason Gabbard and Javier Lopez (and Youk was playing left field and batting clean-up).
5. Paps gets his first save opportunity in 3,452 years. Viva el Gasolina!
