Pass the Rolaids please

*picture from the Boston Globe*

Woke up this morning with knots in my stomach and feeling really uneasy for some reason. Then it hit me: Wake is pitching today.


Don't get me wrong: I love me some knuckleball. It's just I start every game he pitches with a smile on my face and seeing batters wave helplessly at a ball going 65 mph, and end up at the end of the game with my head between my knees and praying.


Nothing works my nerves more during a Red Sox game than Wakefield heaving that thing like a medicine ball while Mirabelli stabs at it like someone trying to catch a butterfly. He can go 3 hitless innings and strike out 5, then, for some unexplained reason, can't hit the broadside of a barn for the next 3.


Thankfully, no drama this year on who'll be catching him: the brass made sure they re-signed Dougie during the off season. As good as Josh Bard has looked since being traded to San Diego, if you're gonna have Wake on the staff, you'd better have his wing man with him. Just like Forrest and Jenny, they go together like peas and carrots.


Game on at 2:10 est. Keep an eye out for Tex: she's roaming the Ballpark in Arlington as we speak, probably talking up some native in a cowboy hat.


I've got my Tum's and Maalox lined up like toy soldiers.


Let's get it on.

YAY!I get to see wake not that I feel confortable when he pitches but,I am excited o see DOUGIE catch:-) And the boss is out of town so i am free.....to an extent but,free enough to watch the game on GAMEDAY:) I am going to watch it now.

KAYLEE said...

//Kaylee what can I say about you that hasn't aready been said.//


Oh come on SCOTT you are alot smarter than you are letting on:-)

KAYLEE said...

//Ted, you are a good husband and father. Just let you wife paint if she wants to. At least she's not asking you to help. :)//


Stacy I hope he is a whole lot nicer to them then he is to US!!!!

Ted D said...

Kaylee, do you actually work at your job? :)

Sox lose, 2-0. You can't blame Wakefield either: I had no use for Tums today. 6 innings, 1 ER, 3 hits, 4 K's. He pitches like that everytime, we win 9 out of 10 games.

Tip of the cap to the Ranger pitchers: they kept the bats in check, especially the starter Robinson Tejada, who went 7 innings, gave up 2 hits,struck out 3 and walked one.

Julian vs. Milwood tomorrow.

Ted D said...

When? You are on the computer all the time! :)

KAYLEE said...

oops deleted my comment by accident but,when we actually have customers today is really slow we all dont wanna be here:)

KAYLEE said...

Ted D said...

Yep: took the day off and watched the game. Plus, the younguns are going to the grandparents and I'm taking my beautiful wife out to eat dinner. So life is good.

KAYLEE said...

Tex said...

WELL...as usual no run support for the Wake Man. :(

Give me some time to rest...and Ill blog...battery ran down in camera around 7th inning...but got some good pics and of course nice stories.

FYI: no need for bail money today but I sure could use me some beer.

KAYLEE said...

WAKE needs run support nxt time!Hi tex!

Ted D said...

Hi Tex! I wanna hear all about it. Looked for you in the crowd scene today, but no luck.

All right: I'm off to take Ang out for dinner. Be back later.

KAYLEE said...

Okay I will back later too!

John said...

Hey Ted, Hope you enjoyed dinner. Must be great to get some time together.

Today's game seemed to turn into a pitcher's duel and the Sox bats going home early.
Again I missed the game. Today's hotel had a wireless hotspot that was faulty and couldn't be fixed cos it's a holiday:(.

scott h said...

Kaylee are you sure? ITs friday night what are you doing home watching baseball?

KAYLEE said...

scott:Yes I am sure. I am home watching baseball so i can keep myself out of trouble:-)

KAYLEE said...

Scott:One of my friends did ask me to go to a party with her but,I dont like the person that is having it...I cant be sure but,i think the boy is on drugs...he wont admit it but,he acts like it so i did not want to get involved with that party.I might have my boyfriend come over:-)

scott h said...

That sounds like the smart thing to do. ITs kinda cool here so we are hanging out at home. Except for the big girls they are out and about.

KAYLEE said...

Yeah I just try to stay away from that kind of stuff!Its cold here and raining too.

Ted D said...

Scotty, it's "mustard gold": so, yellow. And Tex must be tired: if she's not running for beers:)

Hi John: hope your'e enjoying your holiday. Yeah, it was nice to have some quiet: I love my kids, but man is it loud around here.

However, I wouldn't have it any other way.

KAYLEE said...

HOW CAN SHE BE TIRED? going to baseball game is not tiring 6-3 orioles now in the 7th!I am too into this game if you cant tell:-)

scott h said...

Mustard YEllow? Sounds like it clashs with red and blue

Ted D said...

I wouldn't know. I think plaids and stripes go together.

Yankees have 1st and 2nd, no outs, and Slappy up. Lets see if he chokes:

And he strikes out!!!!! HAHAHAHAHA

And the Bronx boos him back to the dugout: you gotta love it.

Bub, have I told you about my DirecTV game mix? I can watch 8 games at once. Very sweet.

KAYLEE said...

rub it in our face ted....I got directTV but not that package:-) at least i canwatch alot odf the games now.

Ted D said...

Crazy thing is I had no idea I had it: I was just fiddling around one night, and poof: there it was.

I'm taking it as a early Christmas gift!

And Jamie Walker just struck out HGH. This is too good.

KAYLEE said...

oh yes it is.....this is better than our game:)

scott h said...

Its not even teams you like! You could be taking down Christmas decorations!

KAYLEE said...

yankees losing and my mets are beating the braves life is good in my world right now.

Ted D said...

It's baseball bub: I've got the Yankee game sound on, but can see, well now just 5 other games. The Diamondbacks and the Reds just won, so they are off.

Don't be hating: you know you wish you had it!

scott h said...

What happen'd to your movie rental addiction? You could pick up a roller and jump in that tellow paint. What happen to Tex, her arms get tired waving at the cotton candy dude!

KAYLEE said...

THATS WHY WE LIKE to see em lose SCOTT.but,you only watch winning teams so you wouldnt know:D

scott h said...

I wouldn't mind a channel that brings on the last two innings of every game.

scott h said...

I only hang out with winning people also ,so be careful.

KAYLEE said...

okay i will watch it scott if i must.

KAYLEE said...

I am a nice gurl you just dont see it scott ,most of the time:D

Ted D said...

Movie rentals ended when I got Xtra innings. I've also eliminated all tv shows but Prison Break, 24, Lost, and Survivor. Priorities Bub.

Tex sounded tired: she's probably out. Though I'm gonna check her blog out just to be sure.

Minky's up for the MFY's. Bottom of the 8th, 6-4 O's.

KAYLEE said...

I watch nothing on tv but sports the only other show I watch is american Idol!

KAYLEE said...

There are some days I wish my mets had Guerremo Mota but if he was gunna cheat he has to pay the consequence.I guess they are better off without a cheater.THE METS JUST WON AND THE YANKEES LOST That makes my night even though the sox lost:)

Ted D said...

//Guerremo//

Wasn't he an Indian warrior?

Kaylee, I think you meant Guillermo Mota.

:)

KAYLEE said...

TED DONT YOU KNOW you are talking to the worst speller here? I am not surprised I spelled that wrong.

Tex said...

Walked around the entire park outside then stood in line till 10am. went in the park and walked around, took pics of stuff till game started at 1pm...walked around somemore...found some empty seats on 2nd level so I didnt even sit in the seats i had bought...I got back to my friends home at 4pm...but I didnt get to bed last night till around midnight.

I just got back from eating and reviewing my pics...dang blog or my computer wont let me blog on my own blog. tired and irritated...PLUS the freaking boys show NO RUN SUPPORT for WAKE!!!!!

KAYLEE said...

Ted D said...
