Big Sigh of Relief

Yes!! Lester was brilliant tonight! A complete game, 5 hit shutout. Boy, did we need this game!

And so did the Yankees after that blowout against Texas last night.

While I'm on that subject, I would really like to know what Ron Washington was THINKING last night when he put in a bullpen pitcher who had never pitched in the majors with a one run lead against the bloody YANKEES!!! Grrr. 12 runs later...and the Yankees have averted a sweep.

Anyway, the Sox were great tonight.

I wonder if that will be enough for the stupid Boston Globe to give Lester an "A?" Somehow, I started getting these email alerts from the Globe after the games. Ever since they started, I have wondered what in the heck it would take for them to give a pitcher an "A!" Geez!!

The Sumbeams didn't play tonight, so we gained a half game on them.

TTFN, y'all!

I looked at the Boston Globe email alert this morning. They gave Lester a B+! Sigh.

A b+ for a 7-0 complete game shutout? Frustrated wanna be athletes, Bickley.

Happy 4th to you and your family, Bickley.

Now I'm curious. What did they rate his no-hitter??

I wasn't getting those alerts back then. I'll see if I can find out.
