My Trip Behind Enemy Lines

So Wednesday I made my first trip to the dirty Bronx and Yankee Stadium to watch the UConn Husky Basketball team be honored and Kemba Walker throw out the first pitch. Let me start with this, I will never, EVER, go back to the Bronx. It took us two hours to get off the highway and then two hours to get to Yankee Stadium after we got off the highway because we were stuck in gridlock traffic. It was not a good scene. The area of the Bronx we were in was not exactly a good part either. You basically drive through the slums of New York and then see this bright shining baseball field. It might be the worst located stadium in sports. I would have thought a high earning team such as the Yankees would have a better location. But anyway, moving on, the stadium itself was very nice, and empty. It was raining which probably played a factor but Fenway is always full. We had two drunk Yankee fans in front of us heckling a couple war veterans because they were wearing Philadelphia Eagles jackets. They were upset because Desean Jackson carved the Giants up in the last seconds of the game on a punt return to squash them like a bug. The best moment was jumping up in joy, with Yankee fans all around me, when the Orioles hit two home runs.

Overall, the Stadium is nice, although very expensive, TEN BUCKS FOR A HOT CHOCOLATE, but the area is terrible and Yankee fans are just as annoying as I thought.

BecKKKKKKKKKKett

Josh Beckett is back baby! He had 10 K’s last night against the Yankees, out dueling the southpaw Pillsbury Doughboy C.C. Sabathia. Taking two out of three from Yankees sure does ease the pain of starting the season 2-7. Seeing Beckett pitch like his old self reassures me that this team will be just fine. If our NUMBER FOUR starter can strike out 10 and only allow two hits against the high powered Yankees lineup, we will be just fine. Also Papelbon has been lights out this season, just as I had predicted before the season started. Have faith Red Sox Nation, the boys are back. I smell a win streak!

Oh ya, one more thing. Can we please find a perminent spot in the lineup for Carl Crawford that isn’t lead-off? He is like 0 for a million since being put in lead-off. Dude couldn’t hit water if he fell out of a boat right now. Put Ellsbury back in leadoff and find a place for the slumping Crawford.

Until next time, Go Sox!
