September 28, 2011


Raoul Duke

I couldn't help but watch the game last night, and while Lavarnway was awesome and showed us that he's probably the future... We almost blew a 4 run lead in the last 2 innings. We're supposed to have the 8th and 9th innings on lockdown! If we somehow make it into the playoffs, do we really let Bard keep pitching the 8th? Especially if it's just a one run game?

Derek Hixon

Good to see you're still with us Raoul, the winter's long, cold, and hard here - so I say grasp baseball as long as there's life.

Our pitching, especially our bullpen, is a mess right now - but it all goes back to the performance of our starters. They crapped the bed all month and the Bullpen's burned out now - no excuse for sure, but I do believe that's the reason.

I do believe you still bring Bard out there, if for no other reason because I don't think there's anyone better suited for the job. Who else would you rather see in the 8th?

Raoul Duke

I agree that it comes down to the starters for sure. But, if Bard's struggles continue into October, I'd rather see Aceves go the 7th AND 8th.


I watched some of the game as well. And I said to myself. Watch this kid is going to hit a HR and save these clowns season. You know how the rest went. I'd like to say that I know for a fact you'll lose in Tampa or that Lester will get blasted again. But I can't. Something tells me this kid from Yale is going to save your season and prevent the most Epic collapse in history. And you guys will squeak by adversity yet again. Frustrating from a Yankees fan perspective since I badly want to see you guys finish this at this point. But hey who would you play in the first round anyway?
It's going to be a real gem seeing john Lackey take the mound on Thursday if you guys win tonight. John Lackey vs the Rays for the season. 180 mil vs 40?mil for all the marbles.


Btw. If he does come up big... May I offer a suggestion for a posting title?
Where there's a WILL, there's a LavarnWAY.
Just saying. Ha
Enjoy these next few game(s) I'm sure they will be ulcer inducing.

Na Na Na Na. Na Na Na Na. Hey Hey Hey. Good bye. And good riddance to you Massholes.

    This past Mothers Day I was visiting Chicago and attended a Cubs/Phillies game. This was my first time at Wrigley Field and I was embraced by my NL cousins.

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...
