Kind of a letdown to have a postponed game the day after the sweep and the walkoff but what are you going to do? Â It’s another rainy day in New England and I’m uninspired to write about a game that is supposed to be played in sunshine and fresh air but there are a few things going on worth mentioning.
It is pouring where I am right now (about 9 miles north of Fenway) at 9:55am. I’m not one who watches the weather so I have no idea what it’s supposed to be like tonight; I just hope that the game gets in. Â Two days without baseball in May is just two days too many.
I watched almost an entire hockey game last night. Â I actually fell asleep for the last five minutes, if you can believe it. Â 6-5 score in a very exciting game and I fell asleep. Â It seems obvious that hockey really isn’t my game. Â Still rooting for the Bruins but taking the rest of the games in small doses, I think!
So sad to hear of Harmon Killebrew’s passing. Â Wonderful, though, to read all the good stories about him. Â I’m always impressed when someone famous is more remembered for being a good person than for what made them famous.
We now have both John Lackey and Daisuke Matsuzaka on the disabled list. Â Better now than in September, I suppose, but still I’d rather we have a full and healthy rotation. Â The upside for me is hopefully getting to see Michael Bowden pitch at Fenway again. Â That I look forward to!
I don’t know how people in Seattle live in this weather. Â All it does is make me want to sleep.
