Second Game

I've been watching since I got home, and things aren't looking good.

I watched at work until 6:30 Central time, and we've been behind the whole game. It's now the top of the 9th, and the score is 1-5, Oakland. Lowell got off a good single to lead off and, strange as it may sound, Casey is at the bat.


Ooh. Ouch. Casey has not struck out, but Casey has hit into a double play. I think that's worse. So it's all up to Varitek, who is not one of our strong hitters. There goes our perfect season, eh?

I'm trying to figure out why the ESPN graphic has a yellow square at first base...there's no one there.

Oh, yeah! I almost started crying when they came back from commercials during the 8th inning and I heard "Sweet Caroline" over the loudspeakers.

Well, Tek hath struck out. Sigh.

Oh, well. We're still in first place all by ourselves.

And now, they have to come back and play exhibition over the weekend on the West Coast.

Later, my friends.

Hey Bickley, My DirecTV was working today, so this idiot was up at 5:30 again. Tough game: Hardin looked like he was in mid season form today.

I'm just glad they are getting back to the States. This getting up at the crack of dawn is tough.

I remember Hardin from last year, I think. He's tough. Manny scored, though...and if I'm not mistaken, that puts him at 491? That's going to be exciting, innit?

I foresee many Casey at the Bat references this year. LOL!

I do wish we could have a normal start time though. 6am. 10pm. ::yawn::
