I don't know what it is about Crawford. Maybe it's the fact that it's a lot less likely that we'll be able to keep Ellsbury because all the money we paid him, or maybe it's just because he hasn't come close to his potential in his first year with us. But, I can't seem to get behind him. Even when he has a good game like last night I still expect him to come out tonight and strike out 3 times. He's just not consistent enough for me to let myself think that maybe he'll play the rest of the year like we all know he can.

On a side note, if we can somehow keep Ells I am definitely getting myself a #2 jersey. I don't care how good looking he is or how many chicks love him. He's got to be my favorite Sox player this year along with Gonzo.

Two Things:

1)It's good to be wary of Crawford, people have been surprisingly soft on him in town - but it's only a matter of time before he turns it around, he cares too much, works too hard, and is just too good of a player.

2) In 2003 I bought a Damon jersey, needless to say that jersey isn't worn anymore. The lesson I learned? Only buy retired players JERSEY OR a player you know will around (IE - Pedroia). Jacoby's a risky investment there, :)

Yea I wouldn't get his jersey until he signed for at least 5 years. Speaking of jersey's to a fellow HST fan. I went to go buy a custom jersey on, I just wanted an Adrian Gonzalez jersey that was his number 28 and I wanted the name to say "GONZO". It's his nickname, plus it would go along with my gonzo tat... mlb wouldn't allow it. Couldn't believe it.

Yea I hear what you're saying about Crawford and you're right there's no way he won't turn it around. But, all current contracts aside say you could only keep ONE outfielder, who would it be? Ellsbury or Crawford?

Those swine - not being able to put Gonzo on the back makes zero sense, what's the point of customizing it?

    This was the first time I've been to a game with my Dad since the early 90's and it was just awesome, especially with everything that happened with my Mom a few weeks ago. I know she was watching the game with us and had to have been happy to see us happy.

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...
