Way To Go, Jon Lester!!!


Jon Lester throws a no-no and I missed the whole thing. I was on my way to work, listening to the Rangers blow a game with the Twins, when Eric Nadel announced it. I almost lost control of the van. Good on Lester, and great catch by Ellsbury.

It was a great weekend, too, with the Sox sweeping the Beer People, and the Rangers taking 2-3 from the Astros.

Ted, did you SEE Josh Hamilton on Friday night?? The boy went 5-5 and was a double away from hitting the cycle! It was amazing! Of course, tonight, he misplayed the ball that wound up being the losing play. I hope he's not too hard on himself, because losing this game was definitely a group effort. C.J. Wilson blew the save in the bottom of the ninth when they were ahead 6-5, and Michael Young struck out with the bases loaded in one of the extra innings. So...they all contributed. But Friday night...the Rangers hit 6 home runs as they whipped the 'stros 16-8.

So the Sox are on a nice streak, and the Yankees remain in last place by 6.5 games. I will enjoy that while it continues.

That's it for now...TTFN, y'all!

I was *watching* the game & almost missed it! I didn't realize what was happening til the 7th inning stretch! LOL! What a great game though!

Bickley, I saw the highlights. The guy single handedly helped me win in one of my fantasy leagues. He is fantastic.

How about the game Masterson pitched last night? The future looks bright.
