As I watched him make this catch last night, I had this one thought: this freaking insomnia I've had for the last 10 days or so has finally made me lose it: I just had a hallucination.
However, after Orsillo went nuts, with Fenway going crazy a millisecond later, I realized it was real: he actually dove flat out, hovered 1 foot off the ground, and caught that ball.
That catch followed a equally unfreakingbelievable catch Coco made Tuesday night which was eerily like this one, except he was running toward LF instead of RF. An added plus to this defensive display of awesomeness is that Coco is starting to come alive at the plate, with an 8 game hitting streak in his back pocket heading into tonights game.
Beckett went to 6-0 for the year, giving the team 7 innings, followed by Okajima (AL ROOKIE OF THE MONTH) and the 9th was manned by Mike Timlin, giving Pap the night off.
Tonight, Daisuke takes the bump at 3-2 on the season: how 'bout we make it 4-2 with another Web Gem or 2 from Coco thrown in for good measure.
Sounds about right to me.
On the 97th anniversary of his birth.
