Beckett vs. the Tribe

I'm going to add a new link over on the right. Its' called Diet Facts - and it's got a great list of restaurants with all the nutritional information on their entrees. It also gives you the "unofficial" points for them.

Did you see the video of Delmon Young throwing a bat at an umpire at the Pawtucket - Durham game yesterday? That boy needs some counseling, for there is clearly some anger management issue involved there. He had previously "bumped" an umpire last year. In this instance, he was called out on strikes, and lingered in the batter's box for a few moments to show that he disagreed. The umpire told him to get moving, and when he didn't move quick enough, the umpire tossed him from the game. In the video, all you see is a bat come from the left, spinning end over end and hitting the ump square in the chest. Wild. They've apparently suspended Young "indefinitely" - which needed to be done. They need to send a strong message to him (and the rest) that this type of behavior is NOT acceptable.

Poor, poor Wake. Why do his teammates hate him so?! They have given him NO run support - they only eked out ONE run last night. That to me is the key to the loss - a lot have been quick to jump all over Josh Bard for his poor performance behind the plate (yes, four passed balls), and they may have contributed. But if the offense could have produced something...

I know, it's only the 21st game of the year, it's a marathon not a sprint, yada yada yada. I know they can't win EVERY game... but at least if I stay up past my bedtime, I expect a victory.

Tonight - Josh Beckett. Wahoo!
