*Picture from the Boston Globe*
This picture concerns me on several different levels: Crazy Julian mauling poor little Daisuke is bad enough, but Wily Mo's thousand yard stare makes me wonder if a serial killer lurks below.
Erik Hinske has a very strange look on his face, much like a man getting ready to snap someones arm off. I have no idea what Dougie is clapping for. Maybe the man love going on next to him?
What bothers me the most, however, is Matsuzaka seemingly copping a feel of Julian's rear end. What does it mean? Is this a show of affection in Japan, or is he just so shocked another man is hugging him in this way that he reacts the way he would if that were his wife? Does Julian realize there are over 36,000 people watching him deflower our newest star pitcher? If so, do you really think he cares?
I love this team. From the serious guys like Drew, Lowell, and Tek, to the semi-odd balls like Daisuke, Papi, and Crisp, to the outright nut jobs like Manny and Julian. They are gonna make 162 games go by in a wink of the eye.
By the way, have I mentioned how much I hate rain-induced "postponed games"?
Bad enough to deal with a 1 hit loss, now I've gotta wait until tomorrow to get my fix.
