Your next Cy Young Winner


Lead-Off Home Run? No problem. Pressure from pitching in the opposing teams park, facing a lineup of Wells, Thomas, Glaus, and Overbay? Are you kidding me?


The 26 year old flamethrower from Texas was CRUISING tonight: 7IP, 1R, 1BB, 5 K's and the only reason he came out was the 20+ minute top of the 8th by the Red Sox batters. He is not just a thrower anymore: he is a COMPLETE Major League pitcher now, and unless he careens off the tracks, he is without a doubt the front runner for the AL Cy Young.


It don't hurt that Youk, Mikey, Tek, and the Muchkin all hit home runs, but when you are hot, that's the kind of things that happen.


Victor Zambrano failed to make it out of the 3rd inning, and that bodes well for the next 2 games: get into that bullpen tonight and they don't have as much depth for tomorrow or Thursday night.


I'm not gonna say I told you so: however, if you go back to the very first entry I made at this little pop stand, you'll see I've been a believer of Beckett from the get go. Anyone who can make the ghost's of Yankee Stadium shut up is a favorite of mine.


21-10 for the year, and with a team comprised of great pitching, timely hitting, and all around goofiness in the dugout, how can you not love this team?


C'mon and jump on board: the bandwagon has plenty of room.

Great minds thinknig alike again I see. Josh is gonna BE IT this year man...he is a TEXAN through and Through...unlike some other player who's a Texas wanna be

Ted D said...

It's like Schilling said:

I'll take the Texan we have and put him against anyone in baseball.

He is flat out DEALING right now.

You and me Tex: all year long.

We are gonna WILL Beckett to the Cy Young!

Mattie said...

I'm writing this in protest, because my brother is a putz.

Roger who?

Tex said...

Whats a putz?

Stacy said...

Good for Beckett. A lead off homer could shake your confidence, but that obviously was not the case.

Here's hoping for a Cy Young for Mr. Beckett.

Pass me the kayopectate

Ted D said...

Tex, a putz would be me for not taking my medicine. Hope your trip was good.

BUB! I hear you are the proud owner of a franchise! You best forget the kayo, you need to just have your stomach lined with lead.

scott h said...

Just how long of a mullett do you wont?

scott h said...

I already have your shirt and shorts you just have to supply the farmers tan

Ted D said...

Not the Billy Ray mullet, maybe the current John Kruk haircut!

That sounds suspiciously like real, actual work, which could radically clash with my aversion to blisters.

scott h said...

I wear sport gloves, no blisters, no returns no complaints.

Tex said...

trip was short and sweet...really bad weather the entire time I was in Big Spring...raining all the way from Midland to Dallas on the plane...but Austin is bright and shiny :)`

Ted D said...

Good for you Tex: glad you made it back home safe.

Daisuke needs a good outing tonight.

Again Bub, sounds like REAL work: not my cup of tea.

KAYLEE said...

i will not say a word about this post:-)!

Mattie said...

Wait a minute! Last week, Ted was ready to sell the farm and take up plants. Now it's too much like work? What gives?

Bub, congrats, I guess! We're praying for you guys!

Ted D said...

Corn Meal: you know how I carry on.

Bottom of the 4th, 3-0 Red Sox. Dice has struck out 6: so far, so good.

Christine E. said...

Evening everyone...

Daisuke looks like he has worked out his issues with a GREAT performance tonight--no wonky 4th inning!

Hope everyone is well!

Tex said...

DiceK looking very nice...lets keep it up

Ted D said...

Hi Christine: Daisuke looked very sharp tonight: all the whirling dervishes are well.

And a nice 8th by Donnelly: I really hope he is left in for the 9th to drill Overbay.

Tex, sorry for my ignorance before: imagine how Angie feels.

KAYLEE said...

these are the kind of games i like just against other teams.
