*checking the calendar* yup, still April... just going to enjoy the game tonight, and as a good Sox fan, make sure that my panic button is ready to go by Memorial Day...

I think you have now condemned my wife to a few days of stories about Earl Weaver Baseball and how I spent my youth... well done!

Well, you can never ever go wrong in a song if there's a "la-la-la-la-la"... really... and I was hoping that link was from a fan video from his Don't Look Back performance...

I feel bad for the Diamondbacks fans out there... perhaps we need to come up with an alternative bit of sunshine? I'm going with "Fiery new manager Kirk Gibson has his players giving 110% in their quest to keep the Royals from the top draft pick in 2012."

Along with many of my New England peers of similar, I have either no memories (dad kept me up, at age 3, to watch game 7 in 1975) or nightmares (1986, with dad again) or ecstasy (2004, grown men crying). But my fondest memory was game 7, 1991. One of three people watching the game in the snack bar at Norwich University, when the security guard started flashing the light and threatening us if we didn't vacate immediately. Ummmmm, hello, game 7 thriller here??? With only a commercial break of time to spare, three guys ran the fasted half mile of their lives to the basement of one of the dorms to see the finish of the game. Best mad dash ever.

I thought that it was an interesting, and correct, managerial play. Frankly, bases loaded and no outs lets the manager off the hook easily (let's face it - the Sox probability to win at that point was pretty darn high). Don't forget that it's the versatility of Zobrist (he does play a pretty good second base) that really made this move a no brainer. I've often wondered if this 5inf/2OF deployment wouldn't be a good spring training trial for a team with a sinkerballer and two rangy outfielders.

Can anything be inferred by the placement of the BP group in the "kids-n-teens" section? And were milk and cookies served before nap time, because if I missed out on that AND great baseball chat...

Since I am no longer in a big city (damn you, Boston! - oh, wait, I miss it. Apologies all around), I think that Mr. Goldstein, as our resident prospect fella, should be put on a bus, minor leagues style, and forced to do events at dozens and dozens of minor league towns. Here in Charleston SC we can certainly take care of the feed part, and I'd be willing to bet that our local minor league team would, with a little prodding, be willing to help put on an event. Of course, it would probably turn into some charity "dunk the stathead/bizarre food eating" tween inning contest, but hey - gotta promote the book, right? (note to self: work on that internal brain filter when writing posts on little sleep)

Ok, I have to admit, a little disappointment with the Red Sox commentary... not with the baseball analysis, mind you, but when Christina wrote "Not that Jeremy Hermida's about to blow up like Parliament", I was just hoping that the link would be her dropping the P-Funk bomb on us. *sigh*
