Gonzo's On Fire
Our very own shortstop Alex Gonzalez has been tearing up the Caribbean Baseball Series, with his bat AND with his glove. Read on, from the AP..........." Late rally boosts Venezuela to Caribbean Series title."
"VALENCIA, Venezuela (AP) — Venezuela won its first Caribbean Series championship since 1989 by rallying for two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to beat the Dominican Republic 5-4 Tuesday night.
New Boston Red Sox shortstop Alex Gonzalez singled in the tying run off Jorge Sosa and scored the game-winner on Henry Blanco's pop-fly double, which bounced off the head of shortstop Erick Aybar after he lost the ball in the lights."
**NICE! And he's headed to Fenway via Fort Myers, the home of Michelbobs' Ribs, the best rib place I've ever had the fortune to chow down in. A healthy meal? Nah. But a once in a while treat. YES! They have a second place in Naples Florida, not too far from where my parents lived after their house was blown away by hurricane Hugo in St. Croix U.S.V.I., in 1989. I wrote about that in a previous post, which you can easily find if you want. But as for the Rib Sox, err, RED Sox, I am feeling good at the prospect of games on NESN and the handful of visits to Fenway. As always, thanks for being here, and I'll be back later.
