I think we need to take these out…
Why??? Well, because the Yankees and Rays swept both their series and are now 3-0 since the All-Star break! Go 3 and 0! Hah, hah, hah. Much of this success can be contributed to the fact that our pitchingis doing spectacular and that our hitters are coming up clutch in key situations.
My man Longoria has been doing alot better since the break and I’m glad. His shot in the 1st game the Rays played since the 2nd half began put them ahead 8-7 and they were able to hold on to the lead with great pitching from J.P. Howell at the end of the game.
This series Howell has been especially lights-out as he has recorded saves in all 3 games and using his dominant stuff to overpower the Royals hitters. He is a talented pitcher that knows how to manipulate his stuff at the right time and place. Will he ever be as good as The Sandman? Nobody will, but in the meantime he can keep on doing what he’s doing and keep on securing the win for us in the 9th inning.
The Rays definitely win the comeback kids award as in each of their games in this series they have came back in the 7th inning or later to get the lead and the win. Talk about fighting till the end!
Hey, this is a Yankee and Rays blog right? So I gotta give a little love to the boys in the big white and blue, the New York Yankees!
How about Teixeira this past series man? He was on fire! 2 homers, 5 hits, 4 R.B.I.’s, so this is why we signed this guy for 180 million dollars this past off-season. He could really put on a show once he gets rolling.
I don’t think the Tigers were prepared for this fiersome beast that they had to face.
You’d better watch out Red Sox Nation.
We’re Catching Up.
Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. There has been a lot of buisness going on…

This is a serious question. This could determine the fate of the Red Sox Nation. This could make grown men cry and women weep. What is the question you ask? Well it is……….
Where will Jason Varitek play in 2009?
Duh, Duh, Dun, Duhhhhhhhhh
The stage is set, the cameras are ready, and tonight we are interviewing Jason Varitek by special guest of honor Ryan Seacrest!!!
We’re on in 5……. 4……3…….2………1………. and it’s showtime!!!
Ryan: Hello everyone, I’m Ryan Seacrest and today I am being joined by Jason Varitek on the Manoman Morning Show! Today I am going to ask Jason about his offseason, what he’s doing to train and what his plans are for this upcoming season.
Jason: Hey Ryan, so how are you doing today.
Ryan: Great, you?
Jason: I’m doing awesome.
Ryan: So what are you doing this offseason?
Jason: Well, I’m playing golf, training, and hanging out with my kids.
Ryan: How are you training for the upcoming season?
Jason: I lift weights, go running, and go training with my teamates.
Ryan: You been speaking to Manny lately?
Jason: Yeah, we keep in touch. I don’t think what he did at the Trade Deadline was right though.
Ryan: What do you think about Manny’s free agency?
Jason: He shouldn’t have demanded so much money at the beginning of the offseason but Manny is a great player and a good guy. I think he will be signed soon though.
Ryan: How about your own contract situation?
Jason: I was looking at my potential suitors and I am in contract discussions with the Red Sox. The fact that they have already offered me a contract and that I have played with them for so many years is definetly influencing my decision.
Ryan: Is Curt Schilling influencing your decision at all?
Jason: Yes, but to a minor degree. It’s good to get input from the players I’ve played with.
Ryan: So Jason, this is my final question. Who do you want to sign with this offseason.
Jason: You know what Ryan, I want to sign with my Red Sox.
