you don't have a mullet OR a mustache

hello again you know you got it what I want

It's too bad Beckett doesn't have a little brother on the D'backs, 'cause maybe then he'd pitch a no-hitter with 20 strikeouts since apparently that increases performance levels three-fold. coughJ.Dizzlecough. But, it's okay, because he clearly does pretty well on his own. And I didn't see most of the game, so that's all I've really got to say about that.

For your reading pleasure, I present the best article ever written: "Knuckle Up for Luck". Seriously, the fist-knock cop is EVERYTHING I hoped he would be and more. Former Marine! Part of the anti-gang units! Bad-ass. I [heart] the fist-knock.

There was a period between meetings this week when everyone was standing around awkwardly with nothing to do waiting for something. It was boring and tedious and then, suddenly, one of the doctors is from RI and he started talking about how amazingly solid Jon Lester is going to be when he comes back. So the three of us from Boston obviously got right into the conversation and sure, all the Midwesterners hated us, but it was just instant camaraderie and delight. The Red Sox bring people together, man. Also, RI doctor totally thinks they're going to send Wake to the bullpen when Crab's ready rather than Batshit Tavarez. Interesting...

In conclusion, we hope that Theo Epstein was watching tonight when Papelbon struck out Helton and that Mike Lowell feels safe and secure when he settles down to sleep with that fancy thumb-brace on tonight.

Oh, and Justin Verlander is kind of adorable. He's totally my Tiger.

Oh, I completely fail at comments.

I was at the game tonight, twenty rows behind home plate lookin' straight down the third base line, best seats I've ever had, and I think I may be pregnant with baby Papelbons is how sexy that was. He had the aura. Command, control, confidence. I wanted to throw my brand new Dustin Pedroia T-shirt at him.

(PS: We're totally starting a Respect The Tek blog, because he came out and played catch for five minutes with Wake while Mirabelli got his pads on, and it was unsurprisingly terrificaly awesome.)

(PPS: Batting Lugo ninth = best plan ever.)

I praise you for getting a Dustin Pedroia shirt! But I am surprised to learn that they make them in sizes other than child XS. Every time I see Dusty, it reminds me of last year, when we went to a game Lester pitched and spent the whole time joking about how he could wear the plastic helmet that the soft serve comes in as a batting helmet.

So I checked your blog and that is like, the best tag line EVER. I feel like if you made Josh Beckett a T-shirt that said "We do not shake off Varitek in this house" he would wear it.

I feel like you need to do exactly that. And make one for Schilling as well. Because, yeah.

One for every member of the pitching staff! Fuck it, one for the bullpen cop, too.

Thanks, Katie! We kind of stole it from Basegirl, but we're making it our own because we say it all the time. There will be a post there, like, real soon. And we'll probably be linking to you guys obnoxiously constantly, since you're, you know, awesome.

(I secretly feel like the second half of the blog title should be, "...and Tame the Curt" or something, but that would be wrong).

At the beginning of the season when we first saw Pedroia, we were calling him the best second baseman in little league. Now we've upgraded him to the best second baseman on the high school team. That's a lot of growth in two months!

Still, I was very torn, and only ended up getting Pedroia 'cause Jennifer was getting Youkilis. If there's a more entertaining batting stance in the world than Kevin Youkilis's, I'd like to see it.

Hey, steal away. (I'm Basegirl, by the way). So...hi!

Apparently we're having this conversation on Katie and Kelly's blog comments section. Because, um, you have no email yet. Which is why you haven't gotten spammed by me. Ask Katie and Kelly about that. They know.

Hi! I feel like I should gush shamelessly because I am a huge fan.

I'm lunalein (at) gmail if you would like to say hello.

(PS: Katie and Kelly, y'all already realize that I am a huge fan of you, too? I think the existence of these blogs is basically increasing my Sox obsession tenfold. Which is going to get awkward when people try to carry on non-baseball conversations with me before, say, Christmas).
