All Together Now! Breathe
Ah, to be home, where the club and its fans got one piece of good news. And that is that Big Papi is out of the hospital and will be in uniform tomorrow to pick up his pusuit of the RBI and HR crowns, and MVP, too. The news on Jon Lester was more scattered and not as bright, as the club remained nearly mum in deference to the Lester family. We can only hope for the best. And in goodbye news, take care Boomer. You were the stabilizing force when the team desperately needed one. Your last 4 starts were gems, and I for one hope you bring the Padres to a world championship. This year! That would be much better than if the team from a couple states down did it. So much better.
And in the game, the Boston Red Sox broke their hideous 6 game downer streak with a 6-4 victory. Alex Cora's fly ball glanced off Alex Rios' glove and then bare hand to fall into the right field grandstand, giving the Sox a 2 run lead that Paps made sure was enough, and good for his 35th save. Can 40 be that far behind? Truly a remarkable season. Just think....where would we be without him? Everyone have a healthy happy holiday weekend. I'll be popping up here and there to check in. Count on it.
