Blah, Blah, Blah

This weekend had such potential. Unfortunately, one bad inning on Friday and Schilling pitching to one batter too many on Sunday led to the Evil Empire taking 2 out of 3 at Fenway. The Yankees didn’t show me much. They have Jeter and A-Rod. Everyone else is just there.

The Red Sox gave these games up. They hit the ball hard last night but right at Yankee players. They had really good starting pitching all three games. Lowell, Ortiz, Ellsbury and Pedroia are all looking good.

This is just a bump in the road. I hope the Sox aren’t going to dwell on these losses too much. There is still too much baseball left to be played, and the Sox are too good to have this bring them down.

I will say this. Manny Ramirez should be left off the playoff roster. I’m glad that he can screw around in the dugout with the Pillsbury Doughboy’s hat on while his team is busting their asses. Do you think Manny’s bat could have helped in a one run game? Of course it could. But Manny is all about Manny. I’m going with Ellsbury, Crisp and Drew in the outfield for the remainder of the season. And I hope Ramirez gets shipped out in the offseason.

    Manny being Manny is this double headed monster that keeps rearing itself over the Red Sox. Yeah going into the Monster during a pitching change or holding up a sign or two is good cheeky fun or even taping Pedro to the pole of the dugout. But thats just one side of it. There is always going to be the “late season injury” with Manny and Sox management is going to let it happen every time. Tito has control of all the guys, under his pay grade. Papi’s not the type to extort anything, Drew has played a subpar Right Field if not ever more evident by lastnight missing the ball 2 feet abouve his head that Trot would have had and thrown a guy out at the plate with, and Manny well, being Manny. You look at Youk, everyday player giving 110% day in and out, still on his Minor league contract if Im not mistaken. Pedroia, Ellsbury and even Buchholz when he pitches gives it all for a combined salary of what Manny probably makes in 3 months. Ill check the numbers on that. Manny being Manny can be a good thing or a bad thing, but Tito should put his foot down.
