I didn't even know Tek got divorced?! That's my very 1st comment, about Tek and his divorce, LOL. If he is dating Watney, I am pretty disappointed in ya Tek!!! You need to be focusing on getting some damn hits and raising that average ABOVE .230. You have a contract that is up this year, what the hell you doing dude. Get your damn head in the GAME or I am going to start calling you Jeter. I am on a roll today, because I'm pissed at Tito this morning. What the hell was he thinking, Pap needs a day to freakin rest, what did Tito expect last night seriously. Can we say overworking our closer?! Or is it just me?!

Bay's shot to the green monster was pretty cool though, it mattered up until the 9th inning, then it was all down hill from there. Dang it Red Sox!!!!

Great post, Derek.
I'd comment more, but every point you bring up gets me all fired up.

I just finished a post, and stopped by. We wrote practically the same thing. I'm with you 100%. They may have lost anyway, but the bottom of the 9th was not handled well at all.

And, what the heck is Varitek doing going out with my girlfriend!

Melissa

I just read a past article on bostonglobe.com about the Varitek's divorce. Wow, never even knew. Is that why he is playing the way he is?! He best step it up, Theo and Co. are not going to give him what the Yankees gave Jorge, that's a fact.

Mellisa, he is not divorced, at least not yet. According to news reports, he was separated for the majority of the summer and only filed for divorce in July, which is probably the reason for his slump this summer. Derek is just a bit ahead of himself on that. And there is no proof to the rumor that he is dating Heidi Watney. At least none yet! People just choose to believe everything they read on the internet from anonymous sources who always seem to be "in the know", but yet still remain anonymous.

I am not believing everything I read on the Internet, I do believe Boston globe though when they say the papers have been filed. That's a true fact. And when our catcher our CAPTION is hitting .225 on the season with 12 HR's and 38 RBI'S in September and his contract IS UP THIS YEAR I say something is going on!!!!

Just my 2 cents tho.

NCSox

Uh, Melissa, you need to read my post again! I didn't say he wasn't getting divorced, I said he was not divorced yet, that the papers were just filed at the end of July! I also said that his marital problems were probably the reason for his slump -- too much on his mind! Read it again!

Derek,

The stories about him and Watney are just that - stories - everyone has heard them from someone who heard it from someone else...exactly what all those links suggest!

NCSox-

Irregardless of what is going on his personal life, his bat has been needed this year, and he has not done anything with it. I am a HUGE Tek fan and have been a big supporter of him, even through his verrrry long slump this year, if the Red Sox decide to not give him another contract in the off season I for one am not going to be too heart broken. Jason has had a great career in Boston, and Red Sox Nation will always love & admire him, but I think it's time we go in another direction for a catcher. It's about time we see what George Kottaras can do for this team. That's all I'm saying, no need to be mean, we all root for the same team here.

NCSOX

Who is being mean? I just told you to re-read my initial post...but how can you be a "HUGE" Tek fan and not know about a divorce that was made very public in all the papers and on the internet over a month ago and at the same time say that if he is not given another contract in the off season, "I for one am not going to be too heart broken".

Yeah, you sound like a "HUGE" fan of his.

George Kottaras? you're kidding right?

Melissa

NCSox-

For 1 I did not know that Varitek and his wife were divorcing because I was too busy watching baseball, not reading about his personal life.

2nd I am a Tek fan, and who are you to say that I am not. Excuse me for saying it, but Varitek is 36 years old, when they start playing the 2009 season he'll be 37. He is a catcher, and all the abuse he puts on his body being the starting catcher for the Sox has put a toll on him. Do you actually believe that Theo and Co are going to sign him to a deal like Jorge's? Because there not going to, the Red Sox will be doing some wheeling and dealing in the off season, and I don't believe Varitek is going to be a part of any of it.
3rd no I am not going to be heart broken if they give up Tek in the off season. He has had a great career in Boston, players get traded all the time, it's a fact of life. That does not mean I am not a fan of his, because I won't be all sad if they don't resign him, it maybe Jason's time to go. Who knows, you or I are not the ones to make that decision.

And yeah I am a fan of George Kottaras, sorry if that bothers you.

And again I state like I already did. We both root for the same team!!!!

2004 World Series: Game One

  • Mounted Police
    My brother Chris flew into Boston from Chicago to help me root on and pull for the Sox in the Series. We went right from Logan Airport to the Park and ended up watching the game across the street from Fenway at Bills Bar on Landsdown Street. We looked into scalping tickets but standing room only were going for $1,200 and up!This was a great and memorable day to be able to be with my brother in Boston to see the Red Sox in the World Series. This is a snap shot of two weeks of my life that provided a lot of sorrow, joy, sleep deprivation, and hangovers. Two of the best weeks of my life...
