Will Hideki Okajima Be Known As THE DARKMAN? It's Up TO US!
Hello on this Sunday, and I have a huge favor to ask you. I linked the Boston Herald's Michael Silverman article from today's paper. PLEASE click on the title of this post and scroll to the bottom of page one, continued on page two. His subject? Hideki Okajima, who is right now THE BEST lefthander in MLB. He's another weapon from our Red Sox bullpen. I have called him THE DARKMAN since he said before season's start that he prefers to remain in the shadow of his countrymate and fellow pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka...a "hero of the dark." And I have been calling him that since my post here dated March 03. THE DARKMAN. He comes out of the bullpen, our wonderful bullpen, and snuffs out all enemy batters. His ERA is less than the price for your newspaper!!!! So please click on the title of this very post and scroll to the bottom. And when you see some of the possible nicknames, you'll realize that THE DARKMAN LIVES!
And if you can, email Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald. HERE IS HIS DIRECT EMAIL ADDY.......... email@example.com He DID ask for reader's thoughts. Please, help me to make the Darkman nic stick. After all, he has been lights-out, unsolvable and a perfect bullpen mate to Jonathon Papelbon. And it's a whole lot better than the nic "Sorryman." You'll see when you read the article. So click...for me? And I must give thanks to Ian of "Sox and Dawgs", and his blog is linked on my link list. Thanks Ian!! And please mention that you heard THE DARKMAN from me at my blog! Thanks so much.
I'm counting on you....your blog guy Peter, and don't forget. RED SOX FOREVER!
