The Game: Week 3    

So, I was going to pick yesterday's Sox/Angels game for the must-see game of the week, if only because it means staying home from work, and commencing drinking at 10 AM. God bless Patriots Day, and the wonderful people of Boston for keeping alive this idiotic, utterly invented, regionally important holiday.

As it turned out, the game itself was delayed by two hours due to the wintry conditions, which puts a damper on the drinking, unless you're drinking whisky. +1. Josh Beckett pitched a strong 6, and Ervin Santana got smacked around- seemed to be unable to locate his breaking stuff, and the Sox just went to town on his fastball. Howie Kendrick went deep, which almost made up for his brutal play in the field. Yikes that throw to second was positively Knaublachian. Is it just me or are we seeing a LOT of crappy baseball being played in this cold weather? Finally, a tip of the cap to the Sox bullpen, for holding down the big lead with three guys I've never heard of. Bravo. Overall, I count this one in the win column for my Game of the Week picks, simply cause any time you can stay home from work for baseball= a win. In other words, his one was a gimme.

What's that? I suck for failing to get this Game of the Week out before the game itself was played? Screw you. But anyway, to make amends, I'll provide a recommendation: Tomorrow's Baltimore v. Tampa game, featuring Eric Bedard (who looks like the coach on Friday Night Lights - TV) vs. Scott Kazmir. No, neither of these teams is going anywhere, but there's plenty to like on Tampa's team from a fan's standpoint, and you can also get a good laugh by watching Bedard pitch and realizing that this dude is their bright spot. God they suck. Finally, a shiny quarter to anyone who can confirm that Scott's entrance music is Zeppelin... wait, do starters even get entrance music? They should. Kaz should strut out to a Page riff every damn inning.

Ok, so maybe you can't take a Baltimore v. Tampa game seriously. But hey, it's early in the season, and EVERY recommendation can't be for a Sox or Yanks game. Oh, wait... lookie here:

Friday, Apr 20
7:05 PM ET
NY Yankees (5-6, 3-3 away)
Boston (7-4, 4-1 home)
NYY: Pettitte (1-0, 1.50 ERA)
BOS: Schilling (2-1, 2.84 ERA)

Seems like old times, don't it?

PS- Youkilis = Mr. Horny Potato Head.



  • Kazmir's entrance music is "This Is Why I'm Hot."

  • is it really?
    Cause that's also Ryan Howard's entrance music. It's the best example of horrible song-turned awesome since Baby Got Back was redeemed by its video.

  • Unfortunately no. I just think the concept of the song is funny. The reason why I think so should come as no surprise.

    Ryan Howard actually comes out to that? What was wrong with "Fergalicious"?

  • Too bad Felix is pitching against Silva and Washburn is pitching against Santana this week. Considering we had a day off yesterday, I might have been tempted to flip them.
