Thoughts for a Friday

1. Continuing the debate from earlier this week... Is there any doubt that Millar will get a standing ovation tonight? As GR pointed out, the circumstances are different (non-NY, Sox did not want him back). However, this is likely to spark more questions to/ comments from Damon (probably in the paper on Sunday).

Dumb reporter A: Did you see that Millar got an ovation from the Sox fans? After seeing that reaction do you feel any differently?

Dumb baseball player A: Kevin was lucky that he had me go first and show him how to tip his cap to the Fenway crowd.

2. As bad as it is to see the Sox offense struggle, imagine being KC, who basically have 5 regulars batting below .200.

3. What the hell happened to Dustan Mohr?


  1. I think what is even worse for the Sox is the overall amount of runs they've given up.

    Think of how bad we think the Yankees pitching is...and how well that Schill and Beckett (and Wake, really) pitched for a while. Then look at the runs allowed...Sox 141, Yankees 105 (second best in the AL and 3rd in the majors)...

  2. Sad, isn't it...that's one stat that did not sneak up on me.

  3. Nice quote from Millar:

    But it was exciting to land here. I was listening to my iPod when we got off the plane at about 5 o'clock in the morning and I was just looking at the streets. And I remember the streets when we landed from St. Louis [after the World Series]. You look out the window, everybody's kind of tired, but I was checking it out. There's a lot of memories."
