2007 World Series-Game 1...New Sox Hitting Coach

For the first time in history two rookies will face off against each other in the first game of this 2007 World Series of baseball. Justin Verlander, who was 18-9 in the regular season, will oppose Anthony Reyes. Reyes was 5-8 during the regular season, and it is the first time a pitcher with a losing record will be the game one starter in a World Series. Strange stuff, but the series should be swift. Detroit took all three games from the Cardinals when they met in June. I see the Tigers winning in six. I orginally was sure this would be a five and out set, but the Cardinals are good enough to take two. Mark my words. They got here, didn't they? Although I do think the Tigers will score a bunch of runs in winning the first two at home. Enjoy the festivities tonight. On Fox. Where else?
In Red Sox news, Dave Magadan has been named to take over the hitting coach duties from the recently fired Ron Jackson. Mags had been fired from the San Diego Padres after having trouble communicating with some of the team's younger players. We'll have to see how this plays out. He is said to be a stickler for details and an avid video tape watcher. Let's hope those tapes aren't Disney movies. The jury is out on this one.

I remember when Magadan came up with the Mets:

He's a 1st Cousin of Lou Piniella;

Yikes!

I did not know that. But I don't know so many things. Have a great Saturday. It's sparklingly sunny with a 10:24 temp of 46 F degeees. From my Weather Center......updates weather-wise to come, all winter. Snowfall precipitation, forecasts.....more than you could imagine. But I did that last winter. So....THE NEW AND IMPROVED 2006-2007 Peter N weather center....better?

I don't know too much about this new guy either, but if the FO thinks he'll fit in...

Oh, by the way, do you know how many times I get that word verification wrong? It's tricky sometimes!

I almost got the score right, in reverse! And Laura, I get it wrong probably 35% of the time...I'l glad they give you multiple shots at it! Hi Kaylee. Oh, my weather forecast was spot on! Same for tonight...similar weather pattern.

I'm still so surprised that they let Papa Jack go....

And Mags was fired for a lack of communication with the younger players...this story is far from over. Take care Rebecca, and everyone, thanks for reading...all winter long!!!!
