"Are You Even A Real Fan?"; Verbally Assaulted In Broad Daylight During Last Night's Crap-Show Of A Red Sox Game
While watching the first major league start of a young player whose name I can't even pronounce, along with a bullpen stacked with names I've never even heard of, some lunatic bozo of a fan dared to verbally assault me last night. Weak move for this non-sensical lady to kick me while I'm down and ask if I'm "a real fan". Here's what happened:
A few weeks ago, I was going through some things in my old desk at my childhood home and came across a plastic baggie filled with some ticket stubs from Red Sox games I attended with my dad. Water damaged, faded, torn, and crinkled, the tickets were like a trip down memory lane.
The MLB released the first voting returns for the 2019 All-Star game on Monday afternoon and there were some notable omissions at the top.
The Red Sox schizophrenic season continued with a series in Kansas City to finish their road trip ahead of a hugely important four game set against Tampa at Fenway Park. After a dismal 2-4 week last week, this upcoming slate of games was set up for the team to get back on track and vault back into contention in the AL East. However, the injury bug started to bite a little harder with JD Martinez joining the ranks of the walking wounded with back spasms that rendered him unavailable for most of this week...and we all know how much this team struggles to score runs when JD isn't in the lineup.
I apologize for being a little behind on this week's recap...the Memorial Day weekend was one of much needed rest and relaxation and I've been having a hard time catching up now that it's over. The Red Sox had some bouncing back to do after the previous week where they dropped two series at home to the Rockies and Astros. A long road trip ate up this entire week with four games in Toronto and three in Houston and sitting only 4.5 games behind the first place Yankees, the opportunity was there to gain some ground in the division...if they could take advantage of it.
Bill Buckner passed away yesterday at age 69 from dementia. Buckner played in the big leagues for twenty two seasons, playing for the Dodgers, Cubs, Red Sox, Angels, Royals, and Red Sox again in 1990. Buckner was a career .289 hitter, had over 2700 hits, over 1200 RBI, and led the league in doubles twice in the early-eighties.
HUGE thanks to Foco.com, once again, for hooking it up! If you are Fenway Faithful, you should probably grab this neat collectible 3D PZLZ!
The other day, I was going through some things in my old desk at my mother’s house and came across a plastic baggie filled with some ticket stubs from Red Sox games I attended as a kid with my dad. Water damaged, faded, torn, and crinkled, the tickets were like a trip down memory lane.
Michael Chavis has been on fire since the Red Sox called him up on April 19th — suspiciously so, some might say. The Red Sox rookie sensation is now tied with J.D. Martinez for the 2nd most home runs on the team with 9 and Chavis has done so in only 108 plate appearances, 87 less than Martinez. Chavis has been setting countless Red Sox rookie records and has become one of the early favorites for the AL Rookie of the Year award. If Chavis were to maintain his current pace and play 104 of the Red Sox 115 remaining games, he’d end the season with 45 home runs. That would shatter the 59-year old Red Sox rookie home run record of 27. The Sox top prospect has been nothing short of spectacular, but there’s an elephant in the room that needs to be addressed.
