9/11 Plus Eight Years

The Tampa Bay Rays, who still have a VERY slim chance to win the wild card (it would be a staggering long shot), invade Fenway Park for three games starting today. Here are the pitching matchups...

9/11/2009 TB 7:10 PM ET NESN Lester (12-7) vs. Shields (9-10)
9/12/2009 TB 7:10 PM ET NESN Beckett (14-6) vs. Davis (0-0)
9/13/2009 TB 1:35 PM ET NESN Buchholz (5-3) vs. Garza (7-9)

Today is September 11, 2009, eight years after terrorists killed many of our friends, neighbors and loved ones and brought down the World Trade Center. Take a moment at 8:42am EDT to look up at the sky and say a prayer for those who didn't make it and their loved ones. Will it make a difference? Oh yes. Thanks.

I'm sure the Rays are trying to keep their comatose playoff hopes alive, but they would love to spoil our run to the wildcard spot. I like our chances this weekend. I hope this is the same rotation when the team & I go to KC (I'm sure we'll have to face Greinke).

Safe travels to Nadia & tell her "Hi" for me. Have a good weekend, Pete.

These two clubs literally HATE each other. I'm sure Nads says "hi" back. You're the only commenter that she knows...all I have to say is "BFW said..." and she knows it's you. She's great and thank you.

Now we have three games to win in two days. GO SOX. Thank you for everything. Pete
