Big Papi doing push ups at home plate was the picture I was hoping to use, but sadly, couldn't find one in time and I NEED to get some sleep.
After the ball busting weekend in Baltimore, getting a 3-0 win tonight was a welcome sight.
Timmeh pitched 8 innings of 2 hit ball, taking a no hitter into the 7th inning before giving up his first hit. Papelbon came in and took care of his business, striking out the first 2 batters he faced, walked a batter, then got the final out.
Meanwhile, down in the Bronx, Rivera blew the save, but the O's 'pen lived up to it's reputation and the MFY's won again. Bottom line? The Sox TCB and it doesn't matter what the Yankees do: the division is in their hands, and to paraphrase Mr. Schilling, you can't ask for much more than that.
Tomorrow night, Jon Lester makes his return to Fenway for the first time in over a year: here's to a 7 inning domination of the Devil Rays for the kid. 4-1 lifetime at Fenway for Lester sounds pretty good to me.
On the home front, I took Rakes to his first soccer meeting tonight: just basic stuff like when and where they will practice/play, what to buy, etc...
I'm looking forward to his in game debut: let's just hope he keeps all his clothing on and can figure out which goal to kick toward.
Photographic evidence of the next Pele will come Saturday after his first practice.
I hope his coach has a cup: I've got a feeling he'll need it.
