Crabby was FILTHY for 8 innings, giving up 1 run and in the bottom of the 8th the bats came alive and thanks to a Jeremy Hermidia bases clearing double and a spotless 9th from Pap the boys won 5-1.
In the bad news department, Papi went 0fer with a few DP's and a few K's and much to my utter chagrin? More than a few boos at Fenway.
Look, like I said last night I'm not one to pile on. I LOVE the Large Father and for the rest of my life will be forever grateful for what he's done for this franchise and it's fan base. Retire his number and erect a statue next to Teddy Ballgame on the back side of the park.
But for right now?
Let Mike Lowell be the DH.
Yes, I've seen 80 year olds with better lateral motion and I'm pretty sure Benji Molina could paste him in a 40 yard dash.
However, this is baseball. See the ball, hit the ball.
And Senor Doubles can DEFINITELY still do that.
