Red Soxs/mariners Weekend!

The two best teams in baseball so far this year at fenway, stripers everywhere, boy you guys out in New England are gonna have a great weekend.
Went to the game last Sunday at Safeco Field to see Pedro pitch and he looked like he is back completely. Total comand and when he needed to he went up a notch to get the job done.
Hope you get a chance to see the Mariners new young pitcher named Soriano. He was just brought up from AA ball and has been a pitcher for only two years now. With only two outings in relief so far it's too early to tell but there are indications here that this guy maybe the next Bob Gibson. If your an old red soxs fan then you will remember what Bob Gibson did to them in the world series. A few days ago Soriano K'd 5 out of 6 batters he faced against the Jay's and none of them came close to touching his 97 mph fast ball that has movement or his slider, curve and devestating change up. Thier gonna bring this kid into the starting rotation soon but most likely not this series.
This series may be a look at the American league championship in October.

Cool

Hey Nick,
As a long time soxs fan and now a former fan I will totally agree with you. But at least in October red soxs fans from this site can worry more about how good the fall migration fishing is than worrying about playoff tickets.

Lighthouse

Last time I wore that hat at the Lighthouse a few Locals in the parking lot gave me a rash of semi-friendly crap. Crap or not history tells the story.

I used to wear mine...I found you can get into better fishing spots being less offensive. Curse will not end... If the sox are up by 10 games...there will be a World Series ending strike.

Nick, on that I agree with you. Heck, I still have visions of the ball bouncing through Bill Buckners legs in 85.

Exclamation

You guys with the Yanks ball caps on while fishing Cape cod better watch out for Assault and battery with a deadly fly!

Red Soxs fans are so lucky to have such a curse. Homer himself could have not written such a tragedy with charecters such as Bucky Dent, Bill Buckner and many many more. What would New Englanders sitting around a wood stove on a cold winter night do if they did not have the curse of the Bambino to talk about. Red Soxs fans don't really want the boys to win the world series that would ruin everything held so deeply in the hearts of generation after generation of fans.
Think how bad the Cubs fans have got it and here in Marenersville we fans have no history yet at all.

Unhappy Ahh Yes

Even if I wore a Sox hat my license plate still would give me away as a New Yorker. I can't hide up there.

Have to watch for that new Mariners picture.

Pinella was one of my favorite yankees when he played.

Brought up in Northern NJ, during yankees dynasties Maris, Mantle, Berra, Howard, Richardson, Kubek, Skowron, etc.. Elston Howard lived in the town I grew up in Teaneck, NJ. Went to lots of Yankess games as a kid, father had friends who were ushers and got into the club house after games several times. Great remembrances seeing the players after the game.

Guess I am still a Yankee fan although in mid west chicago for 23 years now. Cubs and Sox rivalry is great here in Chicago, north siders versus south siders, etc.. Glad the Cubs are bad so far I will be able to get bleacher tickets this summer.

My three sons played a lot of baseball and I managed and coached them for about 13 years straight, great memories, always been a baseball person.
