Flotsam and Jetsam
Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.
The Kraken sounds more like a hangover with the shits than a black spiced rum. I feel awful this morning - I have THE KRAKEN!... The Good, the Bad and the Ugly Red Sox edition: the good - Red Sox starters have a 1.17 ERA over the last 7 games; the bad - the Red Sox are hitting just .232 as a team this season; the ugly - the Red Sox catching situation... Strangest starting pitcher stat line I've ever seen - Miguel Batista 0.0 IP 0 H 0 R 1 BB 0 K then pulled after rain delay... Not that there's anything wrong with that but Charlie Manlove has to be gayest name in baseball history and he was a catcher!!... Since being traded to Red Sox Josh Beckett has 4.22 ERA. Meanwhile in that same period Anibal Sanchez has a 3.73 ERA for Marlins. Just saying... It is easy to forget but Omar Vizquel is only 193 hits away from 3,000 for his career... Andre Ethier very quietly has put together a 19 game hitting streak... How bad did the Celtics lay the beatdown on the Knicks last night? Right after the game "Massacre Square Garden" started trending on Twitter... The Angels have a give-away of Angels logo wrestling masks on May 10th to set record of people wearing wrestling masks in one place. Then on May 11th another record will be set - the number of local gas stations robbed by people wearing wrestling masks... If life gives you melons - you may be dyslexic... Do you think Theo Epstein would still be interested in a Jed Lowrie for Chris Iannetta trade?... St Augustine did something very bad when young and his guilt turned him to Christianity. Wonder if what he did was worse than Kirk Cameron doing Growing Pains?... BREAKING: NFL scout's say FSU's QB Christian Ponder could be second coming of Ken Dorsey... I was amused by this.
