It's the 6th inning in Ft. Myers and the Red Sox trail the 'Jays, 6-4. The important stuff: In Manny's first appearance he went 0-1 with a walk before being lifted for a pinch runner in the 3rd, Runelvys Hernandez gave up every single run (all of them earned) in an atrocious 3rd inning, allowing 6 hits. Snyder pitched two shutout innings, Donnelly pitched another shutout inning, and Okajima, in his first action, pitched a perfect inning.
Did I mention the other night that I LOVE Brendan Donnelly? And as for RunElvis -- IDK what the Sox were thinking with that signing - I hope he continues to get lit up in Grapefruit action so we let him go before the real season starts.
BC vs. Dice-K tonight is the main event on NESN. I'll be in Durham, NH watching the BC men's hockey team take on UNH (look for me on NESN starting at 7:30) but I'll probably be listening on the radio at some point. GO EAGLES! Don't beat up Dice-K too badly, now, y'hear - he's kind of important :)
I'll be in New Hampshire all weekend, but if I get internet access (doubtful - I hear the state of New Hampshire has 3 computers and Spike has exclusive access to 1 of them) I'll blog about BC's victory over the Red Sox.
Ta ta and happy spring! (Even if it doesn't feel like it w/ the sideways freezing rain)
