Formerly Felines for Anarchistic Green Democracies

A Bostonian at the University of Michigan.

There will also be discussion of the New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins, and Michigan Wolverines. Probably in that order.

Weblog Commenting and Trackback by

Tuesday, July 19, 2005  
Wade Miller was bouncing a lot of pitches tonight. Not just wild bounces past Varitek, but he was throwing balls that were bouncing in front of 'Tek. More than once. I hesitate to say anything, because maybe his curveball was just breaking funny tonight for whatever reason, but regularly bouncing balls in the dirt in front of the plate... are we sure he's not hurting? Because that kind of pitching looks like something that someone with a very sore arm would be resorting to.

If you can't bring your arm around strongly enough to get the ball all the way to the catcher's mitt...

Well, one more thing to worry about, eh?

Priceless moment of the game: Manny seeing people come out to talk to Wade on the mound, and, assuming it's a pitching change, heading inside the Monster to hang with the guys who work in there. Only it wasn't a pitching change, and Manny came popping back out of the Monster only just in time for the next pitch.

I also notice that he's got the front half of his hair braided down, with the back half still loose dreads. To better keep it out of his face, maybe?

Johnny Damon in the postgame interview? Sucks about his streak being snapped, and he's been annoying lately in the media, but watching him hold forth in the lockerroom tonight was more than fine. If he's talking to the presshounds, it means that everyone else doesn't have to. I'm not sure people realize how truly valuable that is.

From the department of guys who just never know when to shut up already, I bring you the latest verbal droppings of our old buddy Paul Quantrill:

I enjoyed my time [in New York]. New York fans are Met fans or Yankee fans. It's one or the other. They take it seriously and know the game. They really do stay with their ballclub. I found them to be generally pretty positive. I felt I got treated very fairly there.

"I began my career in Boston, and I found those fans to be edgy. I expected New York to be abrasive, but there's some bitterness in Boston. Maybe it's better now, after they won it. I hope so. They could throw some daggers at you in Boston." article

Oh I'll bet the New York fans are positive and warm and fuzzy and happy compared to Boston fans. Right on, Pauly Q. You always know how to say the nicest things.

With Bellhorn on the DL, and Alex Cora not exactly the heaviest of hitters, how long d'you reckon it'll take before the cries for the Advancement of Dustin Pedroia to His Rightful Spot at the Major League Level begin?

Oh yes, and in case you missed it, there was a fantastic brawl the other night in the Tigers/Royals game. The Farns went insane, charged a Royal, and bodyslammed him into the ground-- seriously one of the best things I've seen all year, even though it will most certainly mean a suspension of some length for Kyle. It's been recapped here, complete with screencaps and quotes from those involved, so if you didn't see it you should probably go share in the joy.

Rod Allen: Oh you don't mess with Farnsworth, he ain't no joke!
Mario Impemba: Watch this takedown, down goes Affeldt!


Jody Gerut was traded to the Cubs today, from the Indians. I am probably the only reader of this blog who cares about that, but it's my bloody blog, so in it goes. Jody Gerut is one of those guys who aren't on any of my teams, who have never been on any of my teams, but who are one of my favorite players anyways. I assume we all have a set of them. Gerut is one for me, Jason Marquis is another... Mike Matheny, Huston Street, Tike Redman, Xavier Nady, Lew Ford, John Grabow. There are a few more. If you really wanted to know, I could give you compelling reasons for each, except for Xavier Nady-- I've no idea why I like him, I just know that I do.

Oh yes, and how could I forget, but we have now slipped down to second place, tied with the O's, below the (*gasp gasp*) Yankees. Granted, we're only half a game a back, and the AL East is by far the closest and most hotly contested division in baseball right now, but still. Still. How so very... ignominious.

Because it's 2:20 am and I feel like it, we shall close with a haiku of the day.

Everyone is mad
At little Alex Cora.
But today: two hits!
