And hey, just to add to the overall enjoyment of the game--how about the bottom of the 7th when (once again) we see Daisuke and Julian hanging out together in the dugout? Remy even remarked in a light-hearted way about what an 'odd couple' they are. Good times.

And in the post-game conference Francona at least addressed the one pressing concern I had about this game--that he's been overusing Okajima. His words indicated that he's at least aware of the potential risk, which placated some of my fears.


And why in the name of God did he have sunglasses clipped to his shirt collar? It's 11 o'clock at night, for Chrissakes. Weirdo.

I found myself wondering the same thing. Maybe he wanted to make sure he didn't lose them in the clubhouse? Ours is not to question why, I guess, especially when it comes to a player's choice of street clothes/accessories. I still find myself grimacing over Schilling's fashion sense (or lack thereof), even though I should be used to it by now.


I would kill to be a fly on the wall near the Daisuke-Tavarez conversations! I can't even imagine. Though more often than not, I bet Dice-K's just smiling and nodding his head and thinking to himself, "this guy is a fruit loop!" :)

That's right Mike Piazza.

If you keep hitting our boy Josh all over the park. We'll just have his FLA copnnection sit on your shoulder!

Let that be a lesson to anybody who messes with our "6-0 All Star starting pitcher" Josh.

You mess with Josh, then you mess with this whole (extended) family from the Florida Marlins! Where Josh goes Mikie goes too! And you know what: We'll take him! That was the best deal that we've ever been forced into! Finally one goes for us. Ya hear that Matt Clement! 18 million for nothing!

BRING BACK LOWELL IN '08 Give him Clement's freed up money next year. Mike's the BEST!!!!!!!

The extremely long Beckett-discomfort conversation is one of my favorites.

I also have to admit, awful as it is, that I laughed when Piazza got hurt on that play. Who gets hurt on that play? It's not like Prince Fielder sat on him or something... Lowell is not that huge a dude. I don't know. It was somehow funny.


I enjoy your enthusiasm, Jack.


Beckett seemed to be a lot more forthcoming with certain press members in Florida. Maybe he was warned about showing a personality in Boston. Or maybe he's just a private person who wants to get out of that room as soon as possible.

Either way, I love the quote in the Miami Herald where he said, "We have a guy on our team who wears No. 38. He can have all the exposure and attention."
