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.
