Red Sox Chick/Toeing the Rubber

Because you always need a backup plan

Tit for tat I guess

Pardon the quality (taken off a non-HD tv with my cell phone) but when I saw this shot on NESN Tuesday night, I knew I had to save it for posterity!

If we’re allowed to get excited about the wins then we’re allowed to get upset about the losses.  But, honestly, I just can’t.  I certainly don’t want them to lose but that doesn’t mean I’m going to tie myself up in knots because they do.  The wins are exciting; the losses lately are excruciating, and still I watch and still I hope and still I dare dream that there will be some kind of miraculous happenings in the American League east that will make it possible for the Red Sox to get to the post season this year.

I know it will take some amazing circumstances but I really just can’t find it in myself to turn the page just yet.   Whether this makes me gullible, naive, a glutton for punishment or something else, I’m not sure, but I just can’t give in, not yet.

I took the above screenshot of Wake last night and planned to use it today without realizing he’d be the starting pitcher tonight.  While I know that chances are we won’t be watching the Red Sox after October 3rd, there are still 23 games left in this season and my plan is to enjoy every last one of them.

  1. given the current circumstances, you can hold the remote the rest of this season and i promise not to throw anything at you when you flip channels… but that’s the only concession i’m making at the moment.

    G0 S0X!

  2. That’s the glimpse of Wakefield that make me wish I had a picture of him at exactly that moment. I think he looks so great right now. Mostly I was feeling sorry for those pitchers who are trying to show their wares and hoping to make it in the bigs and not succeeding at all. Matsuzaka, I don’t feel sorry for at all for some reason. I’m sorry he is not pitching well but I think I’m over waiting for the real Dice-K to show up.
