It is an altogether fitting and proper tie that is the backdrop for the 3 game show this weekend on the fine stage of Fenway. Let the games begin. However the pitchers rise to the occasion, Robbie Cano must be thrilled... he loves hitting in those cozy confines big time - I think he is 400+ in 2010 and 500 this year. 366 career.
Real baseball is back. Sit back, make sure you have your beverage and snacks, turn off the phone, log off, and marvel at Youk's hat size and Petey's vertically challenged accomplishments. Look forward to Josh's so-close-to-the-surface temper flaring to surprise all but those in the know. Does Colon get his 2 seamer tailing back over called as a strike? Does Garcia continue to amaze? Can Lester be had? Do we get the Lackey we all know and love? Will NY ride CC all the way to the barn? I do love Francona - the guy is a class act.
Share and enjoy.
