Papi-licious....And Good-Bye To Rudy

What a win. If we have to use up the bullpen, it might as well result in a victory. And thanks to David Ortiz, it did. IT DID!! Oh, and before I forget, here's a quick note to Rudy Seanez. Rudy please go back to THE COSBY SHOW and reprise your role as Rudy Huckstable, youngest daughter of Cliff and Claire Huckstable. They seem like such a nice couple. You'd be appreciated there. You would enjoy yourself. They would love you like the little girl you are. And we, Red Sox fans the world over, would not have to see you anywhere near a pitching mound, especially during a game. Any inning. Any game. Go now. And goodbye.
Now, the game, all 12 innings of it. 6-0 after 6. Peaceful, calm, collected and relaxed. But Wakes has a long time to sit in that bottom of the 6th. Too long, as it turned out, as very quickly the bases were loaded and there were no outs. And on came young bouncy Rudy, skirt billowing in the breeze. And mayhem followed. An RBI single to Coste, and a bases clearing triple to Rollins. 5 minutes of disaster. Rudy, we will not forget.
Still, it was 6-5 as the 9th started, but Chase Utley hit a fly ball to right that was curling foul, and WOULD have been foul in most parks. But the Pesky pole is RIGHT THERE, and the ball hit the attached screen. We've lived with the help of that pole so many times. The pole giveth, the pole taketh away. Paps ERA doubled, and the game was tied.
12th inning, and down by a run, 7-6. Youk battles and singles in Coco, to tie it, setting the stage for our Big Papi, whose gap single won the game, walk off style. His 2nd in a row and 3rd in 8 games. Does it get any better?
The Mets are in town for the next 3 games. We won't be rested, but we WILL be ready.

Rudy, I now call Seance, because of lulling people into thinking that he's there, in relief:

Get The Tums ready, also with Tavar-ASS;

This is the 1st Red Sox playing of an elite team in the NL East, whereas the rest are in their dotage;

It should be interesting as a battle of 2, Less Than Stellar Pitching Coaches;

& Dave Wallace cannot come back, fast enough!

Nothing against Nips, but I agree with your opinion on DW. P.S. Your last post was great!

hey! thanks for stopping by my blog & commenting. it's always good to find another Sox fan out there in the blogosphere. =)

i have to tell you, back in early May, Surviving Grady made a comment about drugging & gagging Tavarez and tying him to a deep space probe. let's hope it's big enough for two so that Seanez can keep him company. i am SO OVER those two. as i said a few weeks back in my own blog which could apply to either of these two wastes of roster space: "i'd rather not see him on the mound at all. that isn't relief. relief makes one feel better. not much about [him] makes anyone feel better--except the opposing team."

Jonathon, I agree, and I did a month and a half ago.....and Dawn, thanks for commenting here. I will be a reader of your amusing and illuminating blog, and I hope you can return here as often as I write. Hint: Every day. The Sox '06 are a story not yet finished. We both could write the ending, but we both will "sit back and let it all be." (Bruce, in a song sad but true song, long ago).

And sometimes he types his thoughts without the proofread. But that's OK. I hope.
