Get Well Soon, Captain Carl

First, sending best wishes towards Boston. From the AP:
Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski, the last player to hit for the Triple Crown, underwent heart bypass surgery Tuesday after experiencing chest pains.
Heidi just broke in to the Sox broadcast to say his surgery had gone well. Here's hoping for a swift and uneventful return to good health.

Let's hope this inspires our team. It certainly has Jason Varitek going! After homering last night, Tek has a home run and a double tonight. It's great to see Tek start clicking again at the plate. We need him - both his incredible ability to work with pitchers AND his bat - if we hope to make a run here.

And tonight, on the mound, the amazing Matsuzaka. Amazing, in that he always seems to be pitching out of a jam. For example, tonight, he had the bases loaded with one out - then struck out the side. Unbelievable. I guess I shouldn't complain - he's getting us wins - but it makes for some pretty stressful outings!

Beth, Daisuke drives me absolutely crazy with all the walks; last night was no different.

Get well soon, Yaz.
