Murderer's Row

Ladies and gents, the T-ball lineup for last night's Sox game, which as we expected, produced zero runs...
1. Joey Gathright, CF
2. Josh Reddick, LF
3. Casey Kotchman, 1B
4. David Ortiz, DH
5. Rocco Baldelli, RF
6. George Kottaras, C
7. Alex Gonzalez, SS
8. Jed Lowrie, 3B
9. Chris Woodward, 2B

This is standard procedure to go with the 'B' team the day after clinching a playoff spot, but even just reading that lineup makes me chuckle. Though Tito did leave out Scotty Smalls from the Sandlot.
Ah well, about a week until the playoffs begin. What will I do to fill the time? The Bruins start tonight, should I watch them? Nah. Hockey blows.

(* Also, I have no idea if that kid in the picture is trying to hit the ball, or pee like a dog.)

I don't care what you call it, it still sucked....I don't agree with the strategy! If I was someone who forked out hard-earned bucks for a game at Fenway (money which could have been spent on other good stuff like phillie cheesesteak sandwiches), I'd be pretty ticked....who wants to see pee-wee ball when all those great players are sitting right there in the dugout! Well, some of them are good players....okay, a few...One?

Well, they're a playoff team, 6th time in 7 years, so I'd say a majority of them are good players.
And in the age of HD digital television, anybody who pays top dollar for Sox tickets is a sucker, especially for chilly games in September.
