1. The Rays & The Angels both still look really hot….don’t they.
2. Nice to see that Giambi has lost the pornstache. I still can’t stand him, but I dislike him a little less without that horrible excuse for facial hair on his mug. Now, my visceral reaction to seeing him onscreen is just slightly less….physical.3. Joba Chamberlain – tons of talent, but not enough discipline in my opinion. I think this little shoulder injury (which hopefully won’t be anything serious, he is truly so talented) – is God’s way of saying “maybe you should think twice about trying to take off someone’s head intentionally, dumbass”.
4. Clay Bucholz is not ready for starting rotation. I think he needs to be switched to middle relief and the Sox need to find another starter – fast. I get that he’s getting no run support, there’s definitely batting issues at the moment. But I’ve just never been convinced that he’s ready.
5. Still missing Manny…sigh.
And David Ortiz seemed like his was missing him too, during his pre-game interview. Big Papi was a little…somber it seemed. He also mentioned during the interview that his wrist twinges now and again and probably will for the rest of the season. If this clicking from last night is serious – and he goes on the DL, I just don’t know how we’ll keep it together.
Speaking of number 24…sure, everyone balked at the dugout scuffle between Manny & Youk and the contributing comments from other ball players who said that things like that happen more frequently that one would know – it just isn’t televised. Did anyone catch the dugout display by Prince Fielder towards Manny Para last night? Second scuffle for the Brewers in a year caught on HD. Guess that lends a little more credibility towards the fact that when you have competition and testosterone floating around – anything can happen.
