Thanks. And good luck.


We all know the season is officially over, what with the Opening Day loss to the Royals on Monday, but still, baseball will be played.


Lost in the wake of the Sox season imploding before our very eyes since we currently are 0-1, which means we have NO CHANCE of making the playoffs, is the play of one Christopher Trotman Nixon.


Now patrolling RF for the trendy pick for 2007, the Cleveland Indians, Trot has started off the year 5 for 9 with three doubles, 2 runs scored, and 1 filthy Chief Wahoo hat.


I could not be happier: I hope he has a monster year for the Indians and proves not only to Red Sox management, but to the fans as well that he still has plenty of fight left in him. Nobody plays harder or with more passion, and his professionalism and heart will be missed in Boston this year.


May 28th: Indians visit Boston.


Can you imagine the scene for THAT standing ovation?

Im sad I cant be in Boston for his return...Trot IS the epitome of Dirt Dog. Classic Man all the way.

ted...you have groupies now

Ted D said...

Tex, I'll be checking in: game starts at 8, so I'll be running up and down the stairs. THAT will be MY exercise!

Typical me: my groupies are 74 year old twins who like the Gaither Band.

They have a cool groupie name though: Chicklets

KAYLEE said...

KAYLEE said...

KAYLEE said...

I am starting to think men are nicer than WOMEN:)

KAYLEE said...

//Did you date either of these pretty young ladies? 'Cause they seem your type.//

Um since when are these Chicklets pretty and young TED???!?!!? AM I missing somethin?

Christine E. said...

Only teasing you Kaylee!

:-D

KAYLEE said...

Christine-oh i know i aint no fool here....I am a well educated girl you know.....That skips school occasionally!

Ted D said...

Hi Christine,

We are all good: Trot is getting a little better with his ear infection. He and I stayed home tonight while Angie took Ciera and Rakes to church. Great game so far: 3-1 Sox in the bottom of the 5th.

And what exactly do you mean by "I'm like the same age as Ted"?

You calling me old?

KAYLEE said...

No Ted i think she was trying to tell me thats not old:-)at least I took it that way.

Christine E. said...

Ted:

I dont consider myself old, so why would I consider YOU old?

I was defending you...Promise...;-)

Yes, Very happy with Josh and the game thus far...maybe there is hope for this season yet..LOL

Go Sox!

scott h said...

Hello ladies and gents. We are now the geritol generation I guess! Ted you are the chick magnet. Hows the game going. You sound in better spirits mr Ted, now that the undefeated season pressure is off we can enjoy baseball. Tex I'm checking on tickets of course for me it depends on how busy we are. I will make Arlington just not sure about when. IF any of my famuly would come visit I would bring them down!!

Christine E. said...

Glad the kids are doing well, BTW..:-)

KAYLEE said...

Scott:its still 3-1 sox in the TOP of the 6th YOU CANT EVENWATCH the game?YOU THAT OLD AND LAZY?

KAYLEE said...

//I dont consider myself old,//

DO YOU GUYS GET THE MEANING OF OLD?

KAYLEE said...

THANK YOU TEK its 4-1 noe SCOTT!

scott h said...

Kaylee I have put circus sideshow guess your age people out of business!! I'm glad you are off your meds.

KAYLEE said...

//I'm glad you are off your meds.//

wait,it makes a difference?Should I mention I aint on caffeine tonight either?

Ted D said...

I gotcha Christine: I was just picking a little. :) Though with these 3 younguns, I feel about 75.

Javier Lopez in for Beckett: Kaylee, 5 innings, 1 run, 2 hits. You believe in my boy yet?

Scotty, I have very discriminating readers is all. The fact they are female and make fun of my age is beside the point. I have no idea where Tex went: it's quite possible she found another mariachi band.


Kaylee, my mind is hurting. Again.

scott h said...

Ted, did I not tell you to watch JD. You have got to have a little faith faith faith.

KAYLEE said...

//You believe in my boy yet?//

ACTUALLY YES I DO!!!!!!!!!!!!!



//Kaylee, my mind is hurting. Again.//

BETTER GET USED TO IT!

scott h said...

Kaylee at 15 the only thing you should be "on" is a bike!

KAYLEE said...

A BIKE? I am not sure I even own one of those:-)

Scotty,

I've always liked Drew: it's just the fact he always seems dinged up bothers me.

So far, so good.

Tex said...

the mets are tearing UP the CARDS!!!

scott h said...

Hey Tex, just getting ready to make the same comment!

KAYLEE said...

WOOHOOO Thank you TEX...........I want those mets to win... but, I can only watch one game at a time.

KAYLEE said...

what are you guys watching the mets instead of the sox?

KAYLEE said...

6-1 I am loving this sox game tonght.

Ted D said...

Kaylee, they only have cable right now. They can only watch ESPN.

Tex and Scott: 6-1 Sox. Youkilis hit a 2 run bomb in the top of the 7th.

YOOOOOUUUUUUK!

KAYLEE said...

OH yeah I forgot about that TED at least they can watch mondays game:)

KAYLEE said...

THANK YOU METS!!!!!!!

KAYLEE said...

KAYLEE said...

KAYLEE said...

7-1 TEX AND SCOTT:) in the top of the 8th!

Mattie said...

Well, don't we have quite the little slumber party going on here tonight? Glad to see Kaylee finally believes in Beckett. I told you, he'd be nails. And the boys found their bats, evidently.

Bub, I called you today, but you were too busy watering greenery to take my call. So, it's like that, eh?

KAYLEE said...

Tree Squirrel-I said if he proves me wrong I will believe in him and he did.....now GO back into your nest!!!!!!!

Ted D said...

Kaylee,

Does "toen" mean "town"?

Just curious.

Raisin Bran: you think we made a believer out of her yet?

C'mon Kaylee: You have to admit, Beckett was NAILS tonight.

KAYLEE said...

I will admit he was nails tonight!

//Does "toen" mean "town"?//

YES AND WATCH IT TED.

KAYLEE said...

TED i am already thinking about taking TEX ON you want to be next on my list:)

chicklets said...

Ted we hope you didn't try and call; did you? we've been at the nursing home visiting old people all evening. they can sure be a pain in the...whoops we shouldn't go there.

Did the Packers win tonight? we coudln't find them on the television set in Sister Granger's room.

How are your little girls doing?

I sure hope you can help us with our sweater problem!

Tex: we've enjoyed your little word games. Try this one

RUNVUS

Hope not!

Ted D said...

Chicklets,

Trust me: no one is envious of 2 old birds: besides, isn't it past your bedtime?

Sox win 7-1. And all is right with the world.

Dice-K tomorrow. And with that, I'm out for the night.

Ted D said...

By the way, I know the dementia has set in for you old coots:

It's a girl and 2 boys: maybe the quilting meeting can let out early and you 2 can join the 21st century.

You do know about color tv don't you?

KAYLEE said...

be nice now ted please.

Tex said...

ted i didnt know i was gonna be talking to the multiple personalities of your family.

NOWWWWWWWWW Kaylee is liking Beckett!! well I had confidence in him ALL along....he IS from Texas after all ;)

Chicklets...im smarter than the average bear.

UNIROK

Ted D said...

Tex, how do you know that's my family? Do you know something I don't?

Have a good day everybody: even the Chicklets.

Carol said...

Also looking forward to Trot coming to Fenway in May! He'll kind of be like this year's Johnny Damon lol.

Stacy said...

Glad Trot had a good game, just wish it was with Boston.:( Theo is still on my list for not resigning him.

Well, they're 1-1. Maybe they can do something this year. :)

chicklets said...

Oh Ted, I'm sorry. My eyes must be getting alot worse than i thought they were. I could have sworn that was three little girls.

Now why would we have a quilting "meeting"? You dont have to meet to quilt. You just quilt.

Who needs color t.v.?! I can watch the White Sox play the Packers perefectly fine without color.

Mildred was able to find some young man talking about the game this morning on the television set, and i have come to love the looks of that January Lopez. He just looks so nice in that sweater. We were wondering, what color are his eyes? Color televison would come in handy for such an observation.

KAYLEE said...

Okay these chicklets scare me more and more each day.......I am afraid I am gunna be dreaming about them one of these days:)

Ted D said...

Afternoon Chicklets, or in your case, Almost bedtime. The RED SOX beat the ROYALS last night: and today.

And I'm guessing you meant Javier Lopez: and I have no idea what color his eyes are. If you did not know, I'm a guy.

Hi Kaylee

KAYLEE said...

Hi TED the chicklets cant tell your kids are boys and you expect them to know you are a guy?You are talking to the wrong people i think.

Stacy said...

Javier Lopez plays for the Royals? He was one of my favs when he played for the Braves.

2-1 now. Dice K must have done OK on his first start. Now you can go to sleep happy.

KAYLEE said...

NO,stacy he plays with the sox!

KAYLEE said...

Stacy:arent you a sox fan or are you the yankees fan?!

Christine E. said...

Whoo Hoo! What a great game! So glad Daisuke lived up to the hype...:-)

Stacy: Javier Lopez the pitcher is not the same as Javy Lopez, the former catcher for the Braves..:-)

Hope all are well!

Go Sox!

KAYLEE said...

okay thats who she was talking about I probably just confused her:)

KAYLEE said...

I am trying to post a post on my blog but considering that my brain aint thinking right doesnt help me come up with something to write about:)

KAYLEE said...

Where is everyone tonight?

KAYLEE said...

I didnt really think that Dice k looked bad today:)

Ted D said...

Hi Christine:

I worked today, but Tivo'd the game. I listened on the XM so I knew we won, but I watched anyway.

In short, he looked awesome. The thought of him, Beckett, Lester, and Papelbon anchoring the Sox staff for the foreseeable future is sweet indeed.

Stacy, sorry to mess with you: your Lopez tried to catch on with the Rockies but they released him in camp. I have no proof, but he had very productive years at the height of the 'roid period, and he fell way off in recent years. I'm just sayin'.

Stacy said...

Christine, thanks for clearing up the Javy Lopez confusion.

Ted, I won't argue with you; you're usually right on matters such as this. (you don't know how much it pains me to say that.:)
