Baseball, ah. We are goin' to the see the Local Nine on August 30th. I've mentioned doing a local gathering in Pawtucket or Lowell -- folks are interested but it requires a firm organizational hand. Which I usually have, but this year life just seems a lil too overwhelming.
Anyway -- baseball! Was glad to see the Lads of the Carmine Hose stop their skid. And Buehrle! Woof! I love to see a great play of any sort, even if it's for an opponent. I just like seeing amazing feats, and his and DeWayne Wise's feats were truly spectacular.
FYI, you may find it interesting as the OF-er Wise was inserted for defensive purposes just in time for this amazing potential game-saving catch. Clearly it saved this perfect game.

Red Sox play Toronto Blue Jays at 1:35 pm ... it's a Sunday. Might be an interesting time of the season for the penant drive. What does Lowell or Pawtucket ...oh wait..this is for attending a Lowell Spinners or Pawsox game?
When I was home at the end of June, I got to watch the college world series championship with my dad - who grew up playing and who I watched play as I was growing up and who watched me play softball and even though LSU beat Texas (where we were both born) - it was a lot of fun to be able to watch it with him. This kid made the most incredible catch:
We both jumped up out of our chairs (even though he was the opposition - you gotta hand it to him for that catch).
I can't wait to watch the Little League World Series next month.

So, we have two new Hall of Fame members. Thoughts? Memories?
Will Henderson's SB record ever be broken? No one is even close to being on pace. I'm not sure if the difference is speed, or audacity. Ricky had oodles of both.
Dunno. Jacoby Ellsbury is wicked fast and is somewhat audacious, but I see your point -- not like Ricky. As for Jim Ed, well, who stays in one place their entire career any more? Does anyone? Is it even possible these days, unless you have a super-short career?
