« Pedro's Effort Valiant, However - Yanks Take Game 2 | Main | Bill Burr "Congratulates" the Yankees on #27 »

November 04, 2009



I hate to admit it, but this series is compelling for this simple fact alone - Pedro facing the Yankees. Even moreso than if the Phils and Sox were playing. I cannot wait for tonight...

Faith Cardarelli

Derek - that was so eloquent

Derek Hixon

Tonight's a night I watch with one eye closed I think, or at least in-between Celtic commercials ;-)

PS - Thanks Faith!


Wow... I'm surprised he said that quote about Boston fans. It's both cool and not cool. Cool that he was honest and reconnected with you guys. Not cool, because the word Boston shouldnt even be uttered in a series where he plays for the Phillies... BUT you gotta give the guy props. I hated him when he played for you guys but that was a long time ago.

And he def is one of the best pitchers ever. I'd say pitchers over "players." I mean all you have to do is look at the guys numbers... while he failed more often than not against us in some bizarre fashions... the guy def is deserving of respect from a baseball standpoint.


Jeez it's hard to get a straight compliment outta you! :) It is a little odd, but it's fairly succinct. There are a ton of Sox fans rooting for him, and by extension the Phillies, not simply because of the rivalry but because of the fact that no one thought he'd ever pitch again. Or, if he did, he'd be a shell of his former self. He's still a crafty pitcher, and it makes for a compelling story seeing him matched-up against this Yankee lineup. Hell, I'M watching the Yankees in the World Series, even though it may mean I have to see them win it (I'm giving myself a four-run buffer - if the Yankees go up more than four runs, I'm changing the channel...:D)

I never liked the fact that Pedro always refused to shower before and after his starts. While I mostly didn't have to deal with it while sitting in the bullpen, it became quite the issue when I was taken out of the game (after recording numerous outs, of course). I sometimes would have to sit near him in the dugout... Hopefully hes changed his level of personal hygiene after leaving our beloved Sox. Vote for Pedro!

All the best,

Derek Hixon

Mike you don't know how much you're missed my friend. The bullpen band isn't the same without you - and there's also been a drastic decline in camouflage on the mound. Beckett tries, however he really doesn't go after it full force like you my friend.


Pedro is now 12-15 vs. the Yankees.

2005 BDD Playoff Push Party

  • Bar & TV's and Boston Dirt Dogs had a playoff push party at Game On! in Fenway Park on September 19. The game didn't go so well as the Sox lost, however, a lot of people had a good time hanging out while getting to "meet" the trophy!

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...
