I would like to say, before anything else, that I am so very glad we brought Jeremi back up. I was opposed to sending him down in the first place, especially since we did so right when he was getting into a pitching groove and was starting to look comfortable, and especially because I thought we would need reliable long relief that could even spot start if necessary at some point down the line. Myers and ChadBrad aren't bad at all, but in the end they're just trick ponies.
Not that I've anything against trick ponies, they sure make things entertaining sometimes, and they definitely have their uses in the trick pony arena, you can't have the regular horses even competing there, what they do is so different, but sometimes you just want the solid, steady, Thorouhbred.
Sot's good to see Jeremi back from AAA, even if I grumble about how we never should've had to lose sight of him to begin with.
As for this photo, well, you remember that 17-1 drubbing of the Yankees a couple days ago? I was watching it at the Sports Depot in Allston, with a collection of Scary Internet Red Sox Blogging Folk. It was the most fantastic time. This image seems to sum up a lot of the night pretty neatly.... me and Steve hammering on the table (something must have been gong on in the Tigers game), Kristen talking to Amy, who appears to be in romantic throes, Paul chillin' down the other end.
Details to come when it's not nearly 5 am and I'm two taps away from drooling on the keyboard.
