Sweet 12-4 Win against the Rays

Sweet 12-4 Win against the Rays
The game last night was so sweet. It's nice to be number 1 in the rankings so early in the season especially with all the injuries and illness the Sox have had. It's great to have JD Drew & Lowell back in the line up. It was also great seeing some hot bats early in the game instead of just in the last two innings. Can't wait until Schilling returns & lets hope Brandon Moss makes a quick recovery. I can't believe he played as good as he did Friday night & had to have surgery on Saturday.

And Manny- well you just have to love a guy who can smile & laugh when he strikes out.

We didn't need Papelbon last night but I have to wonder why we haven't seen more of him the last couple of weeks- especially when we were down by a couple of points in the 7th & 8th innings. I know Papelbon is a closer but we should use him whenever we need him I think his talent is being wasted when we lose games by 1-3 points and never put him in. It seems kind of silly to me.

One more thing MLB needs to retire Tony C's #25 like they did Lou Gehrig's #4

Actually, it's up to the team to retire #s:

It would be up to the Red Sox to retire Conig's #;

The Yankees retired Gehrig's #4 in 1939;

ONLY Jackie Robinson's # was retired by M L B, in 1997.
